NEW YORK >> CBS is saying goodbye to its long-running hit “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” with a two-hour finale this fall and hello to “Supergirl,” an unusual genre show for the network.

Television’s most popular network will wrap one of its most pivotal hits — the CSI that started the franchise in 2000 — on Sept. 27, with original cast members William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger returning for the finale.

“CSI” star Ted Danson will be sticking around, with his character joining the spinoff “CSI: Cyber” when it returns for its second season with star Patricia Arquette.

CBS will introduce five new programs in the fall, including the uncharacteristic comic-book based “Supergirl” and a comedy with Jane Lynch as a less-than-saintly guardian angel.

The network is the most watched for the seventh year in a row.

WHAT’S NEW

While comfortably successful CBS is bringing back 22 series for the 2015-16 season, it’s found room for three new dramas: In addition to “Supergirl,” the medical series “Code Black” and “Limitless,” based on the movie, are joining the schedule. “Angel from Hell,” with Lynch as the title character, and “Life in Pieces” are the comedy newcomers.
