NBC has renewed its drama series Las Vegas for a fifth season, though not everyone is returning.
With the 2007-08 renewal, Las Vegas becomes the fifth series on NBC to be given a new season order, joining Heroes, Law & Order: SVU, My Name Is Earl, and The Office.
Shortly after the renewal was made, word became to spread that two stars of the show who’ve been there seen the first year; James Caan and Nikki Cox, will not be returning. Caan had the following to say: “I’ve had a wonderful four years, worked with great people and made friends for life working on ‘Las Vegas. “But I’m eager to return to where my heart is, which is film, and due to the show’s schedule, I’ve missed some great opportunities to do that.”
The fourth season (which was given a shortened 17 episode order) will end March 9th.
