Hit police drama show CSI: Miami has been axed after 10 seasons, but affiliated shows CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: NY will continue.

American network CBS confirmed that the show's current season, its tenth, would be its last.

"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," the network said in a statement.

"We thank all the producers and its talented cast, led by David Caruso, for 10 outstanding seasons."


CSI: Miami was a spin-off of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and began airing in 2002.

Ten seasons and 232 episodes were made of the show, and featured cameo appearances by Justin Bieber and Zac Efron.
