CSI Renewed For Season 14 Along With Ted Danson's Contract
CBS might be dropping one of its CSI series after this season, but it’s guaranteed that the original CSI is avoiding the axe, at least for one more year. On Wednesday, CBS renewed CSI for another year and made sure Ted Danson would be back to boot.
According to Deadline, Danson has actually signed another 2-year contract to stay on CSI, but the network has only renewed the series for one more year so far. As plenty of famous names, including Marg Helgenberger and William Petersen have left the show to pursue other projects, it seems smart to sign the man on for an extra year just in case the show gets picked up for two more seasons. Regardless, it’s good to know that Season 14 will be happening.
Recently, the eye network made a similar decision with one of its other long-running shows, NCIS, signing a deal with lead Mark Harmon around the same time a renewal was made. Fans of the veteran program will be happy to hear CSI isn't going anywhere, although the same can probably not be said for CSI: NY, which is expected to be cancelled. While it may seem strange the network would keep an original program over a newer spinoff, CSI regularly wins the “most watched show in the world” award at the International TV Audience Awards. A network won't dump a show that is profitable worldwide, and I expect the show may be on the air for some time to come.
We’ll keep you in the loop as CBS continually updates its schedule.
