Those who were crushed by the cancellation of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in 2015 are in for a treat: a brand new spinoff of the flagship CBS series is on its way. “CSI: Vegas” is the fourth series in the franchise, following “CSI: NY,” “CSI: Miami,” and “CSI: Cyber,” which aired its final episode in 2015.
Jorja Fox and William Petersen reprise the roles they held for 15 years as colleagues-turned-lovers Sara Sidle and Dr. Gil Grissom. Newcomer Paula Newsome (“Barry,” “Chicago Med”) plays Maxine Roby, head of the Vegas crime lab.
