List of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episodes

The fourteenth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation premiered on September 25, 2013 on CBS and will conclude on May 7, 2014.[2]

The series's 300th episode aired during the season, with Marg Helgenberger guest starring in the landmark episode in a series of newly recorded "flashbacks" to a case that occurred in the time frame of the first season.[3] Due to the leave of absence taken by George Eads following his altercation with a writer, he appears only in the first three episodes of the season, under the pretext of receiving special training in Quantico. Eads returned in the November 2013 episode "Check In and Check Out".[4] The season also introduced a redesigned title sequence.

On February 18, 2014, CBS announced plans to launch a new spin-off of the CSI franchise, with a backdoor pilot episode that will air in the spring as a season 14 episode of CSI. Inspired by producer Mary Aiken's previous work as a cyber-psychologist, the new series revolves around Special Agent Avery Ryan in charge of the Cyber Crime Division at Quantico, Virginia.[5]

On March 13, 2014 it was announced that CSI: Crime Scene Investigation would return for a fifteenth season.[6]

On March 24, 2014 it was announced that Paul Guilfoyle who plays Jim Brass is to leave the series after the 14 years.[7]
