CSI: Crime Scene Investigation continues to be a staple of CBS‘ scheduling for about 15 years now.

That is a ridiculously long period of time for any show. Unfortunately, it could not last forever.

CSI is going byebye on September 27th but they are not simply going to fade into obscurity. They are going out with a two-hour ending.

The show has determined to stop its epic run essentially. The ending will reunite the show’s first stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.

What’s going to occur to CSI‘s present star, Ted Danson? He will be relocating to the show’ latest spinoff: CSI: Cyber. He will be costarring alongside Patricia Arquette.

Tryna Cyber?

Tryna <em>Cyber</em>?

CSI altered the game in lots of manners.

Kelly Kahl, senior exec VP at CBS, spoke about the show’s value to the network’s success, saying:

It’s simple to take it for granted. This can be among the most powerful and longest-running plays in TV history. This is among the shows that place us in the correct way and rescinded our fortunes.

CSI actually changed the face of TV in terms of paving the way for more procedural plays. The show’s two spinoffs, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York, did well on their own for a short time.

And with CSI: Cyber carrying the torch, the show will not be vanishing completely, which likely makes the strike considerably less distressing for CSI supporters.

Here’s hoping that two-hour finale is amazing and sends off the show with a hit. Don’t go gentle into that good night.
