Can you believe it's been 15 years since CSI: NY first aired?! (15 years, 9 months, 15 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did CSI: NY end?
When CSI: NY came to an end after 9 years in February 2013, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a CSI: NY reunion disappoint people?
CSI: NY aired from 2004-2013 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Sinise said he's not sure if CSI: NY would work today. “I don't want to see old Detective Mac Taylor,” he told a journalist (Sinise turned 65 in March). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a CSI: NY movie?
In a recent interview, Vanessa Ferlito (who played Aiden Burn between 2004 and 2006) said she can't imagine a CSI: NY reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Claire Forlani (who played Dr. Peyton Driscoll between 2006 and 2010) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a CSI: NY movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a CSI: NY film, Carmine Giovinazzo stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a CSI: NY reboot?
Recasting CSI: NY for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a CSI: NY reunion, a CSI: NY movie, or a CSI: NY reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
