‘CSI: Vegas’ renewed for Season 3 on CBS

'CSI: Vegas' renewed for Season 3 on CBS

Is the crime drama television series returning for another season? Continue reading to find out more about CSI: Vegas Season 3.

The good news has arrived early as the sequel to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, “CSI: Vegas,” is getting an early renewal for the 2023-2024 broadcast season by CBS ahead of its second season conclusion, which will premiere the remaining episodes next month on a weekly basis every Thursday at 10/9c on CBS and Paramount Plus.

We would also like to highlight that, as the show was renewed for a third season a few hours ago, the prospective premiere date for the new season has yet to be acknowledged. But if we have to predict the potential release date of CSI: Vegas Season 3, it might happen sometime around late 2023 or early 2024 as the prior season also has a similar time gap.

At this point in time, this is just speculation! Until there is any formal confirmation, we would recommend that the fans keep a close eye on the social media handles of the show to learn about any new updates. In addition to this, the official Twitter handle of the show also shared the news with its followers, quoting, “Vegas hasn’t seen the last of me yet. #CSIVegas #SeasonThree”

Take a look at the official renewal announcement below: 

CSI: Vegas Season 3: What to expect?

The exact plotline of the series can’t be disclosed yet as the second season still has many episodes left to air, which makes it impossible for the fans to speculate this early on how the events will unfold in the next chapter. So, the series is expected to expand by following the basic premise of the second season, which follows, “A new threat has enshrouded the neon streets of Sin City, and it’s going to take some familiar faces to stare it down. Old friends meet new enemies – and the latest forensic techniques – in CSI: Vegas.” CBS also renewed the unscripted shows Survivor, The Amazing Race, Tough as Nails, and Lingo, as well as the news magazines 60 Minutes and 48 Hours. 

The main stars who will reprise their roles in the new season are Paula Newsome, Marg Helgenberger, Matt Lauria, Mandeep Dhillon, Ariana Guerra, Jay Lee, and Lex Medlin. 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. 

In addition to this, the 15th episode, “Ashes, Ashes,” of the second season, which will premiere on March 2, 2023, will also expand the world and help the new season reach a satisfying conclusion. The episode is directed by Stephanie Marquardt and written by Marisa Tam. The official synopsis of the episode states, “A silver ink note threatening Maxine Roby’s life is found at the crime lab, sending the entire CSI team to crack who is behind the notes and how they connect to other murder cases.” The 16th episode, “We All Fall Down,” will also explore the story further on March 9, 2023.
