Petersen Returns For “CSI” TV Movie Finale

CBS has confirmed that the long-running “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” will end its fifteen-season run with a two-hour telemovie finale that will see original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger return.

The two-hour movie will go to air on September 27th. Following that, current CSI leading man Ted Danson will transition over to new spinoff “CSI: Cyber” as a new regular opposite Patricia Arquette.

CBS’ Nina Tassler said the network considered various options for a sendoff, with the two-hour movie being seen as more of an ‘event’ and reportedly was an idea that came from CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves.
