CSI: Vegas: Grissom and Sara Are Back

CSI: Vegas, the sequel to CBS' 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), 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.

CSI: Vegas airs Wednesdays this fall at 10/9c on CBS.

Say "Aloha" to the Newest NCIS Spinoff

The world's most successful television series continues on the seductive shores of the Aloha State with NCIS: Hawai'i, where the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor, Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) and her unwavering team of specialists balance duty to family and country while investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security, and the mysteries of the sun-drenched island paradise itself.

NCIS: Hawai'i airs this fall on Mondays at 10/9c on CBS.

Tuesdays Belong to FBI

Two established hits bookend an exciting new series on a night of three Dick Wolf dramas. FBI takes the 8/7c spot, while FBI: Most Wanted at 10/9c anchors a formidable lineup that'll launch with a three-hour crossover premiere event in the fall.

The fast-paced drama FBI: International is the third iteration of the successful FBI brand, which follows the elite operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's International Fly Team. Headquartered in Prague, they travel the world with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be. Not allowed to carry guns, the Fly Team relies on intelligence, quick thinking, and pure brawn as they put their lives on the line to protect the U.S. and its people.

FBI: International airs Tuesdays this fall at 9/8c on CBS.

Ghosts Haunts the Thursday Night Lineup

New comedy Ghosts stars Rose McIver as sunny journalist Samantha and Utkarsh Ambudkar as up-and-coming chef Jay, city-slickers who throw both caution and money to the wind when they decide to convert a huge rundown country estate they inherited into a B&B. Only it's already inhabited by a few guests—the many spirits of deceased residents who now call it home.

New series Ghosts airs Thursdays this fall at 9/8c on CBS.

CBS Relights Survivor's Torch

The Tribe has spoken: Survivor is back! Due to the pandemic, the long-running reality comp sat on the sidelines for a year. But Season 41—and dimpled host Jeff Probst—is set to return to its familiar digs on Wednesday nights.

Survivor airs Wednesday nights this fall at 8/7c on CBS.

SEAL Team Heads to Paramount+

Bravo One himself is pretty pumped about SEAL Team moving to Paramount+. "I've been in network TV for over 20 years and now I can drop the F-bomb?" David Boreanaz (Jason Hayes) quipped to Entertainment Weekly. Kidding aside, Boreanaz thinks the move to the game-changing streamer "puts us into the game" and allows the action-packed drama "to go darker."

SEAL Team will air its first few episodes of Season 5 on CBS this fall before relocating to Paramount+.

And So Does Evil

It's been an agonizing year and a half since we found out Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers) might be possessed. And when Season 2 of Evil returns, it'll pick up a mere two seconds after that whopper of a cliffhanger! Robert and Michelle King's scary-good supernatural series makes the leap to Paramount+, joining the Kings' critically acclaimed The Good Fight.

On the Move: NCIS, Bull, and S.W.A.T.

NCIS has aired Tuesdays at 8/7c for 18 seasons—but will migrate to Mondays at 9/8c, leading into spinoff NCIS: Hawai'i. Bull moves from Mondays to Thursdays at 10/9c, while S.W.A.T. will start the season at 8/7c on Friday nights.

The CW All Week!

For the first time ever, The CW will air a slew of shows seven nights a week—kicking off on Sundays with a reboot of Nickelodeon's Legends of the Hidden Temple and a U.S. version of Killer Camp (think Survivor meets retro slasher flicks). The CW's signature hit and most-streamed series, All American, gears up for its fourth season, returning to Mondays (8/7 c), paired with the reimagined sci-fi drama 4400 (9/8c). The Flash and Riverdale both return with special five-episode events to begin their new seasons on Tuesdays.

For fans keeping score, FBI special agents Maggie Bell and Omar Adom "OA" Zidan helped stop a drug cartel, domestic terrorists, a serial killer and kidnappers in Season 3. So, what's ahead for the duo? "Omar and Maggie die," Missy Peregrym says. Her co-star Zeeko Zaki immediately chimes in, "No, we go to Mexico and then jet-set around the world in warm locations." They're joking (we think). While we anxiously await Season 4, Watch interrogated the FBI stars for this digital exclusive.

Zaki: Well, he is 6-foot-5 and I'm 6-foot-5.
Peregrym: I have a small head and I'm shorter, and it doesn't help in the running scenes when this long-legged leaper just goes to 100 right away.
Zaki: We have to slow it down.
Peregrym: Maggie and I are both athletic: I'm comfortable doing stunts and take-downs in the physical sense.
Zaki: She'll tackle me.
Peregrym: I would also say . . . controlling, probably? We like to handle things our own way and don't want to lose. We just want to do our jobs well with the least amount of consequences.

It takes a special kind of person to move towards danger rather than away from it. These people deserve our endless gratitude: doctors and nurses—whose bravery was especially visible during the COVID-19 pandemic—and the first responders in our country's police and fire departments who show their heroism every day. It's the perfect time to tune in to Paramount+ to celebrate their fictional and fearless counterparts.
