This October, the past is prologue as original "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" cast members William Petersen and Jorja Fox return to lead a new generation of investigators into the science behind crime with CSI: Vegas, and now we know when that return will be taking place. On Monday, CBS revealed that the series revival will be kicking off its run beginning Wednesday, October 6. Petersen, Fox, and Wallace Langham reprise their roles as Gil Grissom, Sara Sidle, and David Hodges, respectively; with Paul Guilfoyle reprising his role as Jim Brass for two episodes. Paula Newsome as Maxine Roby; Matt Lauria as Joshua Folsom; Mandeep Dhillon as Allie Rajan; Mel Rodriguez as Hugo Ramirez; and Jamie McShane as civil attorney Anson Wix are also joining the series.
Now here's a look back at the promo trailer for the series' return released last month:
"CSI: Vegas," the sequel to the Network's global hit "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," opens a brand-new chapter in Las Vegas—the city where it all began. Facing an existential threat that could bring down the entire Crime Lab and release thousands of convicted killers back onto the neon-lit streets of Vegas, a brilliant new team of investigators led by Maxine Roby (Paula Newsome) must enlist the help of old friends, Gil Grissom (William Petersen), Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) and David Hodges (Wallace Langham). This combined force will deploy the latest forensic techniques to do what they do best—follow the evidence—in order to preserve and serve justice in Sin City.
Jason Tracey serves as executive producer and showrunner; Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed, Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue, Craig O'Neill, William Petersen, and Cindy Chvatal are also executive producers. Uta Briesewitz is an executive producer and directed (initial episode only) from a script by Tracey. The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television.
