‘CSI’ Likely To Get Full Season Order

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Here’s a question from Ask Matt, which offers some information about the 2014-2015 schedule for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and its new spinoff, CSI: Cyber:

Question: I’m a big fan of Patricia Arquette and am anxiously awaiting her new CSI: Cyber series. I was disappointed to read that CSI: Cyber won’t begin until all the original CSI episodes have aired in its new Sunday time slot. Does that mean Cyber won’t start until May, or will the original CSI have a shortened season? — Victoria

Matt Roush: The idea as I understand it is to run CSI’s 15th season straight through until early spring with no repeats, and that would most likely be a full-season order of 22, which means Cyber would probably get the short order of its initial 13-episode pickup without a back-nine — the spring tryout (probably starting in March or thereabouts) presumably leading to a full-season order for year two if all goes well.
