'Criminal Minds' renewed for 15th and final season

'Criminal Minds' renewed for 15th and final season

Criminal Minds airs Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

The final season will be 10 episodes and kick off with a two-part premiere that puts one of our beloved team members in jeopardy, according to showrunner Erica Messer, who spoke with Deadline about the show coming to an end.

That being said, there is no doubt that the viewers are looking forward to some iconic moments in the season 14 finale, including David Rossi's wedding with Krystal - his third ex wife with whom he reunited last season.

The post told fans to "get ready for a momentous ride". Cast shakeups and behind-the-scenes drama have been the standard on "Criminal Minds" for the past several years. And luckily, the current 14th season won't be the show's last - but Season 15 will be. Some are thankful that CBS has chose to give the series time to wrap up all its storylines and give its characters a proper sendoff. Criminal Minds has put its characters through plenty of ups and downs, deaths and divorces, and worse.

The series has been a cornerstone of the CBS schedule, though its ratings have fallen in recent years. "We wanted to make sure Erica had the time and ability to write a season [14] finale that honors the characters and the fans".

Criminal Minds is now more than halfway through Season 14, which is supposed to end on a much happier note than Season 15's ominous beginning: Rossi (Joe Mantegna) is heading down the aisle.

The network has announced that "Criminal Minds" will be ending with Season 15. The final season will air at a yet to be determined time next TV season. Mandy Patinkin left the show after just two seasons, Thomas Gibson was sacked in 2016 after an on-set altercation and Shemar Moore left to star on a different series. I couldn't get enough when Mandy Patinkin and Thomas Gibson were both in the show.

Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS.
