Criminal Minds ran on CBS from 2005-2020. When the series was cancelled, fans were upset and tried to get it renewed.

In 2022, Paramount+ heard them and decided to revive the police procedural.

It has been such a hit that the streaming service picked Criminal Minds: Evolution up for a third season ahead of tomorrow’s season 2 premiere.

In the wake of last season’s shocking finale, the upcoming all-new season of CRIMINAL MINDS: EVOLUTION picks up as the FBI’s elite team of profilers investigates the deadly mystery of GOLD STAR. As the conspiracy unfolds, the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) is met with an unexpected complication when serial killer Elias Voit negotiates a deal that transfers him to federal custody in the BAU’s own backyard. The team faces its biggest threat yet and cannot emerge unscathed from the mind-bending consequences.

I love stories like this. Network Execs make a lot of mistakes, and this was one of them. I don’t even watch, and I am saying that.


Prime Video screwed up and cancelled As We See It
October 20th, 2022 under Joe Mantegna, Prime Video. [ Comments: none ]

As We See It is the most important show about Autism on television, but it wasn’t important enough for Amazon Prime to give it a second season and it is a huge mistake.

The series starred Rick Glassman, Sue Ann Pien, and Albert Rutecki as three Autistic people living in the same apartment. Not only did their characters have it, but so do all of the actors. The show is created by Jason Katims, who has a child with it. He also Joe Mantegna as the father of Glassman, and the Criminal Minds star is a parent of a child with Autism.

This scripted drama was normalizing Autism in adults. Amazon Prime should’ve renewed this show because it was telling an important story. I hope that someone saves it because it deserves to be saved.

It might be a loss but think of it as charity.

It has been two years since Criminal Minds ended its 15-season run on CBS, and fans have been missing it ever since.

Well, a few months ago Paramount+ announced that they were reviving the procedural for another season, and today they revealed when we will finally get new episodes. Criminal Minds: Evolution will debut on Thanksgiving Day with two episodes. Then we will get a new episode every Thursday until December 15th. It will return on January 12th, and the season finale will air on February 9th.

Joe Mantegna, A.J. Cook, Kirsten Vangsness, Aisha Tyler, Adam Rodriguez, and Paget Brewster are all reprising their roles in the series.

BTW If you are looking for something to watch between now and then, you can rewatch all 15 seasons on Paramount+.


Did Joe Mantegna confirm that the Criminal Minds revival is happening?

Joe Mantegna posted the above photo and said, “Three guesses where I was today? #criminalminds”

Therefore, you have to wonder if that is his way of confirming that the police procedural revival is finally happening on Paramount+ and out of the development phase.

You don’t have to be an FBI agent to know the answer. Therefore, we should expect an announcement very soon about the series’ future and which actors will be returning to the reboot.

Criminal Minds originally aired on CBS from 2005-2020.


Does this photo mean Criminal Minds is coming back?

Paramount+ is in talks to bring back Criminal Minds. However, the talks are stalled. Or are they?

Joe Mantegna shared a photo of himself with cast members Adam Rodriguez, Kirsten Vangsness, AJ Cook, Aisha Tyler, and Paget Brewster, and said, “Had dinner with some old friends last night.”

But I have to wonder if they were just catching up? Or were they celebrating about their series that was the little show that could, until it couldn’t, officially coming back after being off the air for two years? Only time will tell.
