Bad news for fans of David Caruso’s laconic detective Horatio Caine: CBS has canceled ‘CSI: Miami’ after 10 seasons.
In a statement Sunday morning, the network said: ‘'CSI: Miami’ leaves an amazing television legacy — a signature look and style, global popularity and as a key player in CBS’ rise to the top over the past decade. We thank all the producers — led by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ann Donahue — and its talented cast, led by David Caruso, for 10 outstanding seasons. Viewers around the world will continue to enjoy rebroadcasts of ‘CSI: Miami’ in syndication and on key digital platforms for many years to come.’
The network will apparently leave intact the original ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,’ as well as the other spinoff, ‘CSI: NY.’ Still, the news marks the beginning of the end for one of TV’s most successful franchises of the past decade. ‘CSI: Miami’ had dealt with depressed ratings and sharply increased production costs in recent seasons.
What do you think of the final curtain for ‘CSI: Miami’?
