“Criminal Minds” star, Matthew Gray Gubler shared a heartbreaking post of the show’s cast with photos of them holding each other, and fans are ugly crying all over Twitter.


The end has come for “Criminal Minds,” and the show’s cast and crew are just as sad as their fans. Matthew Gray Gubler, 39, posted an emotional “last” photo of the stars in black and white on his Twitter, sharing how they don’t want to let go.

The Tweet showed the cast smiling with their hands holding on to each other, signaling their closeness and difficulty in letting go.


“Day 4 of the last C.M 4 ever. (based on our hands you can probably profile that we don’t want to let each other go),” read the Tweet.

Fans were quick to react to his post, expressing their sadness over the show’s end. A handful of Tweets included memes of characters in tears, adding a bit of humor.

One tweet commended and thanked the cast for doing “an amazing job” throughout the show’s run and suggested Gubler rest and “take care” of himself.


At the beginning of the year came the announcement that “Criminal Minds’” 15th season, with ten episodes included, would be its last. CBS’ executive president of programs, Amy Reisenbach, referred to the series as a “quintessential CBS hit” and highlighted its success on air and online internationally.

“Criminal Minds’” executive producer, Erica Messer, also talked about the show to Deadline, calling it her “great home for a very long time.”


Gubler was one of those who continuously expressed sadness toward the show’s end. In an interview with Parade, the 39-year-old shared that the feeling was bittersweet for him and his colleagues.


“We haven’t said it, but we’re starting to get the feeling of what it’s going to be like. I’m starting to realize like, ‘Whoa, this might be the last time my character says four pages of factual information in a quick manner,” Gubler said.


The show’s success can be attributed, not only to its hard-working cast and crew but also to the stories of each character who underwent personal trauma.

Breen Frazier, the co-executive producer, mentioned that the gravity of each “personal story” has to be at par with the “case in darkness or intensity.”

In fact, Mandy Patinkin left the show after realizing how dark, gruesome, and disturbing the storylines actually were. Had he known of its extremeness, he would not have accepted a role.
