'Criminal Minds' Fans Share Their Favorite Things about the Cast’s Relationships on the Show

Fans of “Criminal Minds” celebrated “International Day of Friendship” with the show’s stars by sharing their sentiments on the casts close relationship: “they are family.”

In celebration of “International Day of Friendship,” CBS’s “Criminal Minds” had an interactive post with their fans where they were asked to share their “favorite things” about the friendships formed on the show.

The comment section quickly flooded with heartwarming thoughts from fans, which acknowledged the different relationships they appreciated on the series.





One Instagram user pointed out the casts inseparable bond after wanting to be neighbors and keeping a “group chat” alive, despite spending nearly half of every day together.

“I love that none of the main characters ever became with romantic. I also love Reid and Morgan’s relationship!” wrote a fan.




“Spencer and JJ’s connection and how she was like a big sister to him! Also Spencer and Gideon’s relationship was so touching!” said another.






As fans may already know, “Criminal Minds” is down to their 15th and final season, after running on air for more than a decade. The final season will premiere in 2020, but the last day of filming already happened.

Rumored guest stars may appear in the last season, including Rachel Leigh Cook and Jane Lynch. Cook might be Spencer Reid’s love interest, sparking a love triangle with Reid and J.J., who recently admitted her feelings. 

On the other hand, Lynch, who played Reid’s mother, might make an appearance the way she did in other seasons. If there’s one thing that’s sure, it’s that season 15 is a sure tearjerker; or so Erica Messer says.

Today is my last day of taping at @crimmindscbs. It’s a surreal day. Everyone hugging, holding on a little longer than before. Thanking each other for the hard work, laughing about the tough times, tearing up over the good ones. Making as many memories on this one day as we can — trying to make as many memories as were made over the last decade and a half in just twelve hours. It’s impossible but we’re trying.⁣ ⁣ Criminal Minds has truly changed my life. This was the first prime-time drama I did for more than one season. Where I directed my first episode of television, where I got my @directorsguildofamerica card. I‘ve made so many good friends here, learned so much, laughed so hard.⁣ ⁣ We all keep reminding each other of how lucky we are, what an extraordinary ride this has been, what a special collection of talented and hardworking people it is. What a joy and privilege to be a part of this extraordinary team. ⁣ ⁣ People often ask why Criminal Minds has been so popular around the world for so long, especially considering the dark subject matter. I always say it’s because people are comforted by the knowledge that a brilliant team of dedicated professionals are working around the clock to keep the rest of us safe. We are just a television show but those people do exist in the real world. I am so incredibly honored to have had even the slimmest opportunity to represent the hardworking men and women of the FBI, who dedicate their lives to the safety of others, and who now, more than ever, are under attack and deserve our recognition and support.⁣ ⁣ Our producer and FBI tech adviser Jim Clemente (@efbeye), who worked at the real #BAU, told us that when CM first came on there were very few college programs focused on forensic psychology, and now every major university offers one. We can’t take credit for that here, but it is a privilege to represent this important work, and the great and dedicated professionals of the real-life BAU. They are out there doing critical work every single day, and it has been a true honor to tell their stories.⁣ ⁣ BTW the cool CM rings are from our own @ajcook. Check out my story for more from today. It’s been a ride.⁣ ⁣ #wheelsup
