Cold Case Reboot in the Works at CBS

CBS is looking to reopen Cold Case. A reboot of the crime procedural, which aired for seven seasons from 2003 to 2010, is currently in development at the Eye Network, our sister site Deadline reports.

Fifteen years after the original series ended, this new iteration would follow an entirely different group of detectives dedicated to investigating unsolved crimes. Though additional details are being kept under wraps, one confirmed change from the original series is its setting; the reboot would take place in the Southwest, whereas the original was set in Philadelphia.

Original Cold Case creator Meredith Stiehm is reportedly writing the reboot script, executive-producing alongside Jerry Bruckheimer (for Jerry Bruckheimer Television) and KristieAnne Reed (for Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios).

This wouldn’t be first time CBS has breathed new life into a Bruckheimer-produced crime procedural, having recently relaunched the CSI franchise with CSI: Vegas, now in its third season.

The original Cold Case starred Kathryn Morris as homicide detective Lilly Rush. Additional series regulars throughout the show’s run included Justin Chambers, Danny Pino, John Finn, Jeremy Ratchford, Thom Barry and Tracie Thoms.
