List of CSI: Miami episodes

The tenth and final season of CSI: Miami premiered on CBS on September 25, 2011, and is the shortest season of CSI: Miami with only 19 episodes. The series stars David Caruso and Emily Procter.


As Horatio faces a painful recovery from his gunshot wound, Natalia faces an emotional recovery from her near-death experience. Calleigh attempts to adopt two children, whilst Delko and Wolfe are assigned to supervise new CSI Sam Owens, a task that will put the latter at risk. A sadistic killer, a Mexican sheriff, an eccentric genius and a rabid dog are among the killers, witnesses, and victims this season, as the sun goes down on Miami.


All members of the main cast returned for this season, whilst Eva LaRue planned to depart the cast subsequently. Adam Rodriguez wrote and produced the episode "At Risk", based on the Penn State scandal. The series finale aired on April 8, 2012, but was delayed due to extended coverage of the Masters.[1] In May 2012, CBS cancelled CSI: Miami, making it the first show in the CSI franchise to end.
