CBS Orders ‘CSI: Cyber’ Spinoff to Series

The original “CSI” gang is back together again as CBS has ordered a series for the “CSI” planted spinoff starring Patricia Arquette.

“CSI: Cyber” features Arquette as the head of FBI’s cyber crimes division in Quantico. The episode, which aired April 30, was written by “CSI” creator Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue, the team that launched the original series in 2000.

Pam Veasey, the longtime showrunner of “CSI: NY,” is on board as showrunner of “CSI: Cyber.”

CBS kept mum about the pickup but exec producer Jerry Bruckheimer spread the news via Twitter Friday afternoon.

The order for “CSI: Cyber” means that there will again be multiple “CSI” branded shows on CBS’ air next season. At its peak the franchise had three series concurrently. But “CSI: Miami” ended a 10-season run after the 2011-12 season, and “CSI: NY” wrapped the following year.

The mothership is going into its 15th season this fall.
