The long running CBS crime procedural Criminal Minds is coming to an end with Season 15.
The show has been renewed for a 10 episode final season cementing it as one of the longest running scripted shows on Primetime TV. Amy Reisenbach EVP of CBS’ current programs released the following statement.
“It is the quintessential CBS hit. We are so proud to have aired it. It speaks to everything we do best, which is air quality television. It’s been successful not only on air but online, in syndication, internationally for ABC (Studios).”
The final season will be a serialised story and will see the team up against formidable villain and will be concluding the 10 episodes with a showdown with that person. The production of season 14 will continue directly into shooting for the final season.
Criminal Minds, which was created by Jeff Davis, has aired on Wednesday since its launch, spending 12 seasons in the 9 PM slot until sliding to 10 PM in fall 2017.
