From murder mysteries to high-profile heists, when will the electrifying continuation of the iconic crime drama series resume? Continue reading to find out more.
The second season’s finale, “Dying Words,” had a massive cliffhanger that piqued the interest of the viewers to new heights as we got to see that Folsom spirals 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, much to everyone’s shock the episode ends when the main suspect is found dead in a dumpster, Josh surrenders, and he is arrested.
This ending has left fans on the edge of their seats and has once again excited them more than ever to know what happens next, eventually leading to questions like, “When will CSI: Vegas Season 3 return on CBS?” While we understand your anticipation, we regret to inform you that the new season is not going to be on CBS in June 2023. The fans will have to wait some more time if they want to watch the show on this streaming platform.
As a result, we’ve compiled a list of everything that the fans should look forward to and know about while they wait and recall events from the previous seasons. Here is everything we know so far about CSI: Vegas Season 3 at Web News Observer!
CSI: Vegas Season 3: When will the new season begin airing on CBS?
As of writing this, we can confirm to the readers that the potential release date for the third season hasn’t been disclosed, as the final episode of CSI: Vegas Season 2 ended a few weeks ago on May 18, 2023, which makes it way too early to disclose this information. Moreover, the CSI: Vegas renewal for the new season was confirmed back on February 21, 2023, which means it will take time for the crew to even begin production this month alone.
Hence, there is no chance that the new season of CSI: Vegas will return in June 2023!
On the bright side, CBS has recently confirmed their 2023-2024 primetime schedule which highlights the broadcast schedule of the third season, which is set to arrive in the fall of 2023, with September or October being the most likely release window with the same time slot of every Sunday at 10/9c on the CBS network and Paramount Plus. Even though this is a great update, we urge the fans to wait patiently, stream the whole series if they haven’t already, and hope for the best outcome!

CSI: Vegas Season 3 Production Status
Undoubtedly, following the premiere of the second season’s 21 special episodes, the crew and cast will take some time off for the summer, just as they did for the first two seasons. That’s not it, as right now, it is anticipated that filming of the third season will begin in the latter half of 2023, either in late June or early August, which we are hopeful will happen as per the plan.
We say this with a bit of uncertainty, as the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike may postpone the production of the series, as several sources have suggested. There is a slight chance that the show’s makers may aim for the series to release next year in order to start the production process without any obstacles until a good resolution is achieved for the writers to begin working on it.
Many major production houses have already sifted through their schedules in order to not clash with the strike and cause major problems behind the scenes. In conclusion, CSI: Vegas fans may learn more about the show’s development status and release date by following official statements from CBS and the show’s producers.
CSI: Vegas Season 3: What can the fans expect to see in the new season?
The series is expected to carry the basic theme of the series forward which follows: “Facing an existential threat that could bring down the entire crime lab and release thousands of convicted killers back onto the neon-lit streets of Las Vegas, a brilliant new team of investigators combine forces and deploy the latest forensic techniques to do what they do best – follow the evidence – in order to preserve and serve justice in Sin City.”
As previously stated, the CSI team investigates a murder case that is very personal to Folsom, and the team members find themselves rushing to apprehend the suspect before Folsom. The following season will undoubtedly start right where it left off and heighten the story even more. Take a look at the official promo of the final episode to recap the events that have transpired so far.
In case you haven’t streamed the series, it will help you get a gist of the ongoing storylines and character arcs that have captured the interest of the audience for so long!
CSI: Vegas Season 3: Who will return?
The main stars who are expected to reprise their roles are Paula Newsome as Maxine “Max” Roby, Matt Lauria as Joshua “Josh” Folsom, Mandeep Dhillon as Ahalya “Allie” Rajan, Ariana Guerra as Serena Chavez, Lex Medlin as Beau Finado, and Marg Helgenberger as Catherine Willows, among other cast members.

Blume serve as executive producers.
CSI: Vegas Season 3 Episodes and Streaming Options
Even though the exact number of episodes for CSI: Vegas Season 3 has yet to be announced, we can anticipate a similar range of episodes with an average runtime of 42 to 45 minutes, just like the previous season. Furthermore, we would like to emphasize that the episode count may vary depending on the theme that the show wishes to convey to the audience.
In the meantime, interested viewers can binge-watch the previous seasons to recall the events before the new one makes its official premiere on the streaming platform. CSI: Vegas Season 3 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 channel on Sunday at the time slot of 10/9c.
Moreover, the first season 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. On the other hand, it is also available to watch for free on the CBS platform in select regions.
