The finales to last year’s television hits will be revealed as the new fall season begins. Many shows ended with a cliff-hanger, leaving fans eagerly anticipating their return. Thankfully, the wait is almost over.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation did something it has never done before: It ended its seventh season with a heart-pounding cliff-hanger. All season long, the CSIs were haunted by the miniature killer who left behind precise and detailed miniature replicas of the crime scenes as the only clues.

Lead investigator Gil Grissom (William Petersen) and his team’s assumptions and theories were tested as they tried to dig deeper into the mystery of the miniature killer. The finale proved to be an episode of revelations for the team as many truths were brought to the surface. Not only did Grissom inadvertently expose his relationship with his subordinate and fellow investigator Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) to the rest of the team, but the killer struck again, kidnapping Sara. The finale concluded with Sara’s life hanging in the balance, crushed underneath a red mustang in the desert.

CSI is sure to keep fans intrigued as it kicks off its eighth season, on Sept. 27 on CBS, with the miniature killer storyline coming to a close in the first episode.

The season premiere, entitled “Dead Doll,” should be one full of drama and suspense and different in its approach. The investigation team is not looking for the suspect this time; they are looking for the victim in a race against time as they try to save one of their own with a miniature model as their only clue.

House’s season three finale concluded in a way that fans had never expected. Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) had not only dealt with some of his hardest cases throughout the season but he also dealt with personal demons along the way.

House’s unorthodox and seemingly uncaring methods kept him in constant disagreements with his team. The tension lead to a shocking moment: House’s co-worker Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) announced his resignation. Despite the pleas of his fellow team members and eventually House, he refused to stay to avoid ending up like House.

The anger continued to brew for Laurie’s character and it came to a head in the finale when a frustrated House fired Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), which prompted his last team member, Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), to quit. One can only wonder what will become of House now and how he will continue.

This much anticipated premiere is sure to keep its audience interested and eager to find out how House can recover from all the changes.

The season premiere, which airs Sept. 25 on FOX, will show how Laurie’s character goes about finding a new team and will also indicate what role his former team will play in the season.

Ghost Whisperer mystified its fans when it revealed a major twist in the season two finale. Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) has the ability to see and speak to spirits, allowing them to cross over. She soon discovers that a mysterious man is preventing souls from crossing. She makes it her mission to find out who is doing it and why.

The finale teased fans by making it seem as though Melinda had died. But this became a way for her father’s spirit to communicate with her, informing her that she had a brother she never knew. Her brother may be the man keeping souls earthbound.

Melinda faces the effects of these new revelations in the season premiere. Fans can look forward to finding out how Melinda deals with the fact that her brother may go against everything she stands for and how she will approach a relationship with him. The season premiere of the third season, airing Sept. 28 on CBS, is bound to be suspenseful.
