CSI: Vegas has teased the return of two of the franchise's fan-favourite cast members in the revival show's first official trailer.
The new series, which picks up six years after CSI: Crime Scene Investigation's finale in 2015, promises to open "a brand-new chapter in the city where it all began."
The official CBS synopsis continues: "Facing an existential threat that could bring down the entire Crime Lab and release thousands of convicted killers back onto the neon-lit streets of Vegas, a brilliant new team of investigators must enlist the help of old friends Gil Grissom, Sara Sidle and David Hodges (Wallace Langham).
"This combined force will deploy the latest forensic techniques to do what they do best in order to preserve and serve justice in Sin City."
"Every case, every defendant that was put away with evidence from our lab has been called into question," Jorja Fox's Sara can be seen saying in the promo, which suggests that the workforce is subject to some sort of high-profile investigation or a member of the team has, perhaps, been involved in some criminal activity.
The aforementioned trio will have to work alongside new lab head Maxine Roby (Barry's Paula Newsome), as well as a fresh-faced team of forensics-based experts played by Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights), Mel Rodriguez (Last Man on Earth), Mandeep Dhillon (After Life) and Jamie McShane (SEAL Team), in their attempt to keep their former unit's reputation intact.
While the teaser focuses on onscreen drama, the show has had its fair share behind the scenes recently, too. Just last week, actor William Petersen, who's set to reprise the role of Grissom, alerted the team that he felt unwell on set and was hospitalised due to exhaustion "as a precautionary measure".
CSI: Vegas premieres on Wednesday, October 6 on CBS in the US.
