In this month of October marking the 20th anniversary of CSI: crime scene investigation, SCS seeks to celebrate the occasion with a reunion of the series of events (similar to how The X-Files, 24: live another day, and Hero returned). Writer Jason tracey (Elementary), CBS Television Studios, and Television Jerry Bruckheimer should be the spearhead of the project, located in Las Vegas and serving as a sequel to the original series (based on Hollywood Deadline report).
Reports are only the original cast members William petersen and Jorja fox have been contacted regarding a return, but no formal offer is in play. In fact, the possibility of a limited series is still in its infancy, no agreement in place and considerations Financials need to be finalized (representatives for CBS and CBS TV Studios declined to comment).
It’s also unclear if the limited series would involve characters from all three of the main series’ spinoffs: CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, and CSI: Cyber.
Created by Anthony Zuiker, the series took viewers inside a Las Vegas Police Department crime scene investigation unit to show how physical evidence can be used to solve crimes. Joining Petersen and Fox on the show’s original airing were Marg Helgenberger, George Eads, Gary Dourdan, and Paul Guilfoyle. Dr Gilbert “Gil” Grissom of Petersen was followed in the lead role by Laurence Fishburne, then Ted Danson.
Over the course of 15 seasons (ending his last case in 2015), CSI: crime scene investigation has proven a billion-plus-dollar franchise that has dominated prime time for much of this series. CBS gave the series a final two-hour special send in September 2015 – although the network, CBS TV Studios, and Bruckheimer TV have pitched the idea of ââbringing the franchise back in the past four years. Tracey is set to produce the project, alongside JBTV’s Bruckheimer and Jonathan littman.
