As CSI Files previously reported, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will come to an end with a two-hour TV movie scheduled to air on Sunday, September 27. The movie will feature the return of original leads William Petersen (Gil Grissom) and Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows). “How do you say goodbye to a show that made television history?” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler asked during the upfronts on Wednesday. “It was the No. 1 show on television for years. Not only has it been an important part of our schedule, and success, it helped change the direction of this network.”
You can find a set of tweets after the jump, including current and former cast and crew members, which relate to the CSI cancellation and the upcoming series-ending movie. There is also a video from Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle), in which she addresses the fans:
CBS announced today that CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will end with a two-hour TV movie, as previously reported. Original stars William Petersen (Gil Grissom) and Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows) are set to reprise their roles in the series-ending storyline, which will air on Sunday, September 27. “We’re actually a little misty-eyed about this one,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said. “It was a series that was so important to this network, and we will have an epic finale to start the season.”
Additionally, it was announced that current CSI star Ted Danson (DB Russell) would join the cast of CSI: Cyber going into the show’s second season. He will be a series regular, but there is no further information about how else the cast might be affected by the “retooling” mentioned here. “It’s going to be a season of very big events,” Tassler revealed.

CBS announced 15 renewals for the 2015-2016 season, including the freshman series CSI: Cyber. NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles will join freshman spinoff NCIS: New Orleans on the schedule this fall, and the original Criminal Minds has also been renewed. As CSI Files previously reported, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders has been picked up for the 2015-2016 season following the backdoor pilot that aired last month.
The future of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will likely be revealed at the CBS upfront presentation on Wednesday. The network is still deciding how to bring the long-running series to an end, with the two-hour movie mentioned here being the most likely option.
As CSI Files previously reported, the future of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation remains in question, with the show facing cancellation. After 15 seasons on the air, the network is considering options to give the show a final farewell, including a shortened season with as few as six episodes. Deadline now reports that another option could be a two-hour TV movie to serve as a series finale.
The freshman spinoff CSI: Cyber also has an uncertain future. However, Deadline states the show has a good chance for a second season, although it “may undergo some retooling.” Here are two tweets from a different source, which also suggest Cyber will get a second season and CSI will end with a movie:
No reply from CBS, but two sources tell me CSI: will end its legendary run on CBS next season with a two-hour movie. (1/2)

When the fifteenth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation ended in February after 18 episodes, the future of the series was left up in the air, and there has been no word from CBS about whether the show will be renewed for the upcoming 2015-2016 season. Deadline reports that the network is considering options to bring CSI back for a final farewell, including an abbreviated season with as few as six episodes. However, this has not been confirmed, and there is a chance the show will be cancelled without any additional episodes. The fate of CSI might not be revealed until the CBS upfront presentation on Wednesday, May 13. This is the same day CSI: Cyber will air it’s two-hour season finale, which could end up being a series finale if CBS chooses not to renew the freshman spinoff.
