‘CSI: Vegas’: Alibi Picks Up Sequel Series To Premiere July In The UK

After a bit of a wait, CSI: Vegas, the sequel series to the original ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’, has finally landed a UK home on Alibi it has been announced.

The latest CSI series 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) alongside Allie Rajan (Mandeep Dhillon) and Josh Folsom (Matt Lauria) must enlist the help of old friends, Gil Grissom (William Petersen), Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox), David Hodges (Wallace Langham), and Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle). 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.

“The CSI franchise has a proven appeal to audiences and we can’t wait to get CSI: Vegas to UK screens on Alibi,” said Alibi’s channel director, Emma Ayech. “The mixture of the new cast and returning established characters is sure to excite long-term fans of the show and new viewers alike.”

The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and was licensed by UKTV from Paramount Global Content Distribution by Melanie Rumani, global head of acquisitions at BBC Studios. So for those of you worrying that everything “Paramount” made will vanish onto Paramount+ when that launches tomorrow, that doesn’t seem to be the case. They will still be selling some shows to other broadcasters.

“This deal again shows UKTV is an excellent partner to home premium US drama,” adds Melanie Rumani, global head of acquisitions at BBC Studios. “We’re also pleased to have strengthened our relationship with Paramount with this deal and look forward to doing many more in the future.”

On a side note, for those of you with NOW, Alibi will be finally added to the streaming service from the 28th of June 2022, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy the show as well when it lands. The series has also been renewed for a 2nd Season.
