CSI franchise vet Marg Helgenberger is among the first CSI: Vegas cast members to react to the CBS drama’s cancellation after three seasons.

TVLine reported on Friday that CSI: Vegas, as well as So Help Me Todd, had been cancelled at CBS — leaving just the fates of NCIS: Hawai’i and The Equalizer to be determined.

Lex Medlin, who plays Beau Finado (aka “the most overqualified CSI Level 1 of all time”), shared on Instagram, “I am going to miss this cast and crew so very much. Most of all I’ll miss Beau. He was so fun to play. Thanks all for the support. On to the next adventure.”

Season-to-date, CSI: Vegas is averaging 6.2 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating (with Live+7 playback), up 8% in audience from its Season 2 numbers and steady in the demo. But out of the 14 dramas that CBS has aired this TV season, it ties for last in total audience and only bests NCIS: Sydney in the demo.

After airing its first two seasons on Thursday nights at 10/9c, CSI: Vegas for Season 3 was relocated to the Sunday closer spot, where it leads out of TV’s new most-watched drama, Tracker.

CSI: Vegas follows Maxine Roby (played by Paula Newsome) as she leads her team of crime scene investigators — Catherine Willows, Joshua Folsom (Matt Lauria), Allie Rajan (Mandeep Dhillon), Detective Serena Chavez (Ariana Guerra), Chris Park (Jay Lee) and Beau Finado (Lex Medlin).

Season 1 of the revival-of-sorts brought back CSI OGs William Petersen and Jorja Fox as Gil Grissom and Sara Sidle, after which Season 2 tagged in Helgenberger. Other CSI vets popping up on Vegas include Eric Szmanda as Greg Sanders and (in the pilot) Paul Guilfoyle as Jim Brass.
