CBS recently renewed many of their beloved series, but two of them just ended up on the chopping block. CSI: Vegas is going off the air after three seasons, while the legal dramedy So Help Me Todd was canceled after just two seasons.

CSI: Vegas launched on CBS in 2021, as one of the latest additions to the ever-growing CSI franchise. Seeing it stick around for three seasons is pretty impressive considering that CBS initially conceived it as a limited series revival of the mothership drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which ran between 2000 and 2015.

As for So Help Me Todd, a legal dramedy led by Skylar Astin and Marcia Gay Harden is coming to an end after two seasons. It followed the aimless private investigator, who agrees to work for his mother’s law firm.

CBS didn’t give a reason for the cancelation of these two series, but it’s safe to assume they’ve decided to ax them in an attempt to make room for new shows joining their 2024-25 lineup. NCIS: Origins, Matlock, and Watson are all expected to premiere on CBS this fall, and the network is most likely expecting them to perform better than CSI: Vegas and So Help Me Todd.
