The CMS muon system is based on three types of gaseous detectors, RPC, CSC and DT. While operating very well in the present conditions, upgrades are foreseen for each of the subsystems, necessary to cope with the increased pile-up, coming along with higher rates and radiation. Electronics can be modernized by profiting from recent developments. In addition, detector R&D is ongoing, to possibly install other types of detectors, allowing to improve the trigger and tracking capabilities in the forward region. The upgrade programs and the relative R&D will be outlined in this presentation.
