CBS Cancels ‘CSI: Cyber’: Patricia Arquette And James Van Der Beek React

Jump to Comments


It’s a sad day for CSI:Cyber fans. CBS has decided to pull the plug on the drama after just two seasons on the air.

According to Variety, the network is not renewing the series for the 2016-2017 season.

Starring Patricia Arquette, the procedural follows special agent Avery Ryan (Arquette), a CyberPsychologist who helps the FBI crack cases. The series, which also stars James Van Der Beek as Elija Mundo, Shad Moss as Brody Nelson, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s Ted Danson as D.B. Russell, premiered in 2015 and will come to a close at the end of season two.

Arquette and Van Der Beek both took to Twitter shortly after the news broke to react to the series’ cancellation.

“Wanted to thank the fans for your support and working so hard to keep the show on. I have great love and respect for cast&screw,” wrote Arquette.

“Well, guys, it’s official. #CSICyber will not be renewed for a third season,” the actor wrote.

Koontz also took to Twitter to thank fans.

“THANK YOU for two great seasons and a life changing opportunity. What an honor to have a small part in history with this franchise,” he wrote.

News of CSI: Cyber’s cancellation comes almost a year after CBS announced that it was pulling the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigation series. Now that the network has scratched the last standing CSI spinoff lineup, it definitely feels as though it’s the end of an era.

CSI: Cyber airs Sundays on CBS.
