[ # ] Thomas Gibson fired from Criminal Minds
August 12th, 2016 under CBS


A little over 24 hours after it was reported that Thomas Gibson was suspended from Criminal Minds for allegedly kicking a writer on the show during an argument two weeks ago, CBS and ABC Studios announced today that is suspension will be permanent. The network and the studio released this joint statement, “Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds. Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date.”
With the additions of Aisha Tyler and Adam Rodriguez as series regulars this season, the show will be able to survive his firing. Maybe they can convince Shemar Moore to return, since his departure was left open-ended?
Since Gibson joined the procedural in 2005, he has had two alleged violent confrontations and he was also arrested for suspicion of DUI in 2013. You can understand why they said enough is enough. In the real work world, he would’ve been let go after the first incident in most places.

UPDATE: Thomas Gibson released this statement to The Hollywood Reporter, “I love Criminal Minds and have put my heart and soul into it for the last 12 years. I had hoped to see it through to the end, but that won’t be possible now. I would just like to say thank you to the writers, producers, actors, our amazing crew, and, most importantly, the best fans that a show could ever hope to have.”
