The president of CBS Entertainment, Kelly Kahl, told Deadline: “Twenty-one years ago, we launched CSI and watched in awe as this new cinematic series launched an entire genre and became a groundbreaking juggernaut that still has global resonance today.
“We are thrilled to welcome the next generation of forensic criminalists to the CSI brand and unite them with the legendary characters from the past who we still love, including the extraordinary Billy Petersen and Jorja Fox.
“Crimefighting technology has advanced dramatically over the last several years, and combined with classic CSI storytelling, we can’t wait to watch this new CSI team do what they do best: follow the evidence.”
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation first began airing in 2000 and spawned a host of spin-off series including CSI: Miami, CSI New York and CSI: Cyber.
CSI: Vegas is set to premiere in the US later this year. Details of a potential UK broadcaster have not been confirmed.
