As we get invested in new shows, there are always eyes on the future of them. CSI: Vegas is one of those shows we’re invested in. Is there a chance Season 2 will happen?
When we heard a CSI revival, we were certainly excited. Then we learned that Gil and Sara would return. That made it clear we needed to watch.
The series has introduced a new lab with Maxine Roby in charge. Gil and Sara are invited in as advisers, helping to figure out what’s going on with a major threat to all the work they’ve done in the past. David Hodges is being framed for fudging evidence, and it could lead to hundreds of prisoners going free.
While Gil and Sara deal with that, the crime lab has individual cases to take care of. It looks like these individual cases are a way to build the new team for us to get us invested for a second season. Could we see that second season happen?
Is CSI: Vegas Season 2 going to happen?
Don’t count too much on a second season. To start with, the series was originally billed as a limited series. It’s an event series, with the main story one season-long event. We’ve seen it over the course of the last four episodes, and there are still six episodes to continue it.
There’s no guarantee that William Petersen and Jorja Fox will agree to come back for another season. Why would they be invited back to the crime lab? Would they want to when it was links to their old cases and an attack on Brass that pulled them into the case in the first place?
There are individual cases of the week, though, following the format of the original series. The case of the week elements introduce us to a new team. This is where we could see a second season happen. We’d likely move back to the original format.
It’s important to look at how the show is performing on the network. We don’t get to see the streaming data, but the live ratings aren’t looking great. According to TV Series Finale, the show is 17th out of all 19 scripted shows. Remember that SEAL Team is moving to Paramount+ exclusively, so it’s really out of 18 shows. That’s not a great sign.
Wednesday nights are tough. We’ve seen it with SWAT, SEAL Team, and much more. The low ratings aren’t surprising, but they’re disappointing, and they put the show at risk of cancellation.
