The 2010 CSI season premiere is nearly here, and it will star Justin Bieber. Having Justin Bieber on the 2010 CSI season premiere will certainly help bring in some viewers who might not typically watch the show, and as long as he doesn’t have a central role for very long, it should be fine with regular viewers.
The 2010 CSI season premiere is on Thursday, Sept. 23, as the CBS begins its fall schedule for Thursday nights. Again the 9 p.m. timeslot will be a tough one, with Grey’s Anatomy returning on ABC at the same time. Right there is a reason to bring Justin on to the premiere.
In the spring 2010 season finale of CSI, Dr. Raymond Langston (Laurence Fishburne) had been stabbed by serial killer Nate Haskell after the team had finished taking out another killer that they had dubbed “Dr. Jekyll.” The case was ready to be closed, when Langston went down to the holding cells at the CSI office to talk with Haskell one last time. It was at that time that we find out that the officer guarding the cells has been killed, and that Langston is at serious risk. He gets too close to the cells, and Haskell attacks him. Now we will find out if Langston survives, and if Haskell uses this diversion as a way to escape.
The previews for the CSI season premiere don’t seem to indicate that the opening episode will deal with what took place last season for very long. Instead, it looks like CBS will open the show with a bang, as someone is planting bombs around the funeral of the officer who was killed. Will this killer claim new victims in the premiere? And what tie does Justin Bieber’s character have to this criminal? If we have to guess just from the early previews, it could possibly be his dad who is involved somehow in this new case. Hopefully Justin can bring some energy to the premiere, and that the show starts off strong.
This is going to be the 11th season of CSI, a show that started the same year that Survivor did back in 2000. The show has seen a lot of cast changes over the years, including William Peterson (Grissom) leaving the show, Jorje Fox (Sara Sidle) leaving and coming back, and the death of Warrick Brown (played by Gary Dourdan). Some bad news for fans is that Liz Vassey was fired from the show, as the producers decided not to pick her up for a new season. That was a mistake, as she was really strong as character Wendy Simms working in the lab. Such is the life of a drama that has been on the air for so long, but hopefully the show doesn’t stray too far from its original roots this season.
