CSI to end after 15 years
CSI, one of the longest running television shows in history, is to end after 15 years on screen.
The police procedural premiered in October 2000 and over 300 episodes have been broadcast, but CBS has now confirmed that its 15th season will be its last.
Set in Las Vegas, the series followed crime scene investigators as they use physical evidence to solve murders. The likes of Laurence Fishburne, Elisabeth Shue, Gary Dourdan and George Eads have held key roles on the series over the years.
The series will draw to a close with a two-hour long TV movie, which will see original stars William Peterson and Marg Helgenberger returning to close out the series. That will be broadcast in September.
During CSI's time on TV, it has spawned a number of spin-offs, including CSI: Miami, CSI: New York and CSI Cyber. CSI Cyber, which launched earlier this year, will continue for a second series and will be bolstered by the arrival of Ted Danson, who has been moved from his slot in CSI to CSI: Cyber.
