Horatio Caine is taking off his shades for good– CBS just confirmed that indeed, CSI: Miami will not be back next season. This is the first series from the CSI franchise to get off the air. Despite strong international sales and a fresh off-network syndication deal with AMC that would’ve covered an 11th season, CSI: Miami was the more expensive of the two spinoffs. Here is a statement from the network:

“CSI: Miami” leaves an amazing television legacy – a signature look and style, global popularity and as a key player in CBS’s rise to the top over the past decade.  We thank all the producers – led by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ann Donahue — and its talented cast, led by David Caruso, for 10 outstanding seasons.  Viewers around the world will continue to enjoy rebroadcasts of “CSI: Miami” in syndication and on key digital platforms for many years to come.”
