CSI: Vegas Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere on CBS?

Firstly, we regret to inform the readers that the highly anticipated third season of “CSI: Vegas” will not be available to stream anytime soon, and certainly not in July 2023! If you recall, on February 21, 2023, CBS officially renewed CSI: Vegas for a third season, which isn’t surprising as the series has been able to gather some amazing reception and viewership from fans around the world, which led to an easy approval that has been set to premiere during the 2023–24 television season.

Ever since the renewal was announced, many eyebrows have been raised by the fans who are curious to know when the filming will commence, especially after the sudden writer’s strike breakout, which doesn’t seem to stop anytime soon and has highly caused doubts about whether the creators will be able to release the new season for CBS’s 2023 fall broadcasting season or not. Right now, it seems like urgent meetings about postponing the series’ release might have already begun. 

CSI: Vegas Season 3 is not coming in July 2023

Until there is any confirmation, we speculate that the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike has the potential to change the primetime fall schedule, and the season might get rescheduled entirely for next year, with the premiere date set for early to mid-2024 for every Sunday at 10 p.m. on the network, as many reports have also suggested that CBS has put a hold on major production until next year. In conclusion, any updates relating to this subject are just pure conjecture! 

We would also like to emphasize that, as of now, no official comments about it have been made by the verified source. So, we recommend readers follow CBS’s social handles to catch up with all the details whenever they are published. 

CSI: Vegas Season 3 Plot: What to expect?

Not much has been revealed, but we are certain that the theme will remain consistent in order to convey the story, which follows: “Amidst the neon lights and long shadows, dark threats continue to lurk in Sin City. Maxine Roby leads her brilliant team of Crime Scene Investigators as they use science to solve baffling cases. This combined force will deploy the latest forensic techniques to do what they do best – follow the evidence – in order to preserve and serve justice in Sin City.”

On the other hand, we can assure readers that the third season without any doubt, is expected to continue from the second season’s finale episode, “Dying Words,” which ended on a massive cliffhanger and showcased Folsom spiraling into an emotional frenzy when his mother is found murdered inside a warehouse. After reuniting with Trey, they both set out to hunt for the killer. Later, we learn that the episode ends when the main suspect is then found dead in a dumpster. Josh surrenders and is arrested.

CSI: Vegas Season 3 Cast: Who will return?

There can be some new characters introduced in the next season, but for the time being, we are certain that the main cast members from the second season are all set to reprise their roles in the new season, which are as follows:

  • Paula Newsome as Maxine “Max” Roby, head of the Las Vegas Crime Lab
  • Matt Lauria as Joshua “Josh” Folsom, a Level III CSI who is typically the lead investigator on cases
  • Mandeep Dhillon as Ahalya “Allie” Rajan, a CSI recently promoted to Level III is an immigrant who followed her dreams to Las Vegas
  • Ariana Guerra as Serena Chavez, a homicide detective
  • Jay Lee as Christopher “Chris” Park, a Level I CSI
  • Lex Medlin as Beau Finado, a Level I CSI
  • Marg Helgenberger as Catherine Willows 

Many recurring cast members are also anticipated to join the principal cast. Lastly, the series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television. Jason Tracey, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Kristie Anne Reed, Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue, Craig O’Neill, William Petersen, Cindy Chvatal, Steven H. Kram, and Steven H. Blume serve as executive producers. 

CSI: Vegas Season 3 Episodes: Where to stream?

We can assure the readers that the official episode count of the new season hasn’t been revealed by the network. But if we follow the pattern of the last two seasons, then the show is very likely to consist of at least 10 to 21 episodes with an average runtime of 41 to 44 minutes, which are expected to drop on a weekly basis. This count can be reduced due to the writer’s strike only if it isn’t resolved soon, which will eventually force the creators to shorten the season as filming will be delayed.

When CSI: Vegas Season 3 premieres, it will most likely be available on all prior platforms that have the rights to stream the series, as well as on-air on the CBS website and app. Moreover, the series is currently available to stream on Apple TV, Paramount+, and FuboTV. The series is also available to rent or buy on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and Vudu, depending on the viewer’s location, with preferred membership plans that the users can choose from.

CSI: Vegas Season 3 Frequently Asked Question

Was CSI: Vegas a limited series at first?

The show was originally branded as an epilogue limited series, but later the show was renewed for a second season in December 2021, without Fox, Petersen, or Rodriguez returning, and now it is heading for a third season! It is a follow-up to the long-running series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and the fifth series in the CSI franchise.

When was the third season approved by CBS?

Earlier this year, on February 21, 2023, CBS renewed CSI: Vegas for a third season, which has not set a release date but is expected to premiere during the 2023–24 television season if the writer’s strike doesn’t cause a delay in filming due to which it can be rescheduled for the 2024 premiere which if it ever happens will be confirmed later. 

Is there any official teaser or trailer?

Unfortunately, the network hasn’t released any full-length teaser trailers for the new season, as filming hasn’t even commenced, which makes it impossible for the network to create and promote a teaser with new clips from the upcoming season to reveal some plotlines. Hence, we urge the readers to wait and be patient for some time!
