Avid fans of the hit series, “Criminal Minds,” could hardly contain their excitement over the premiere of its 15th and final season.


Many of those who have been closely following the police procedural crime drama television series took to Twitter to share their thoughts and feelings about the new season.

“Criminal Minds is back and it’s never felt so right,” wrote one Twitter user. Another one tweeted, “Me dancing to the #CriminalMinds intro after missing it for a year.”

Another Twitter user quipped that the show’s writers must have told themselves to remind people what kind of show “Criminal Minds” is as they sat down to work on the final season.

During the season before the 15th and final season, a few unresolved storylines kept fans hanging, including the chance that a well-known serial killer making the life of the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit difficult, as reported by Pop Culture.

Many online sentiments also touched on the blossoming romance between A.J. Cook’s Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau and Matthew Gray Gubler’s Spencer Reid.



“Criminal Minds,” which first aired in September 2005, airs every Wednesday night on CBS. It is also available to stream on CBS All Access.

Created by Jeff Davis, the police procedural crime drama television series is set primarily at the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico, Virginia.

Last year, fans were anxious over the possible cancellation of the series after Season 13.


What makes Criminal Minds different from many procedural dramas is that it focuses on profiling the criminal rather than the crime itself. The riveting series pits a team of FBI profilers against a different serial killer each week.

The show's cast includes Mandy Patinkin (playing Jason Gideon), Thomas Gibson (Aaron Hotchner), Lola Glaudini (Elle Greenaway), Shemar Moore (Derek Morgan), and Matthew Gray Gubler (Spender Reid, Ph. D.)


Criminal Minds has had two spin-offs: Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.

Past rumors about the show’s cancellation have long kept fans on the edge. Last year, fans were anxious about the possible cancellation of the series after Season 13.

In March 2017, CBS announced the renewal of 14 shows on their lineup, which didn't include “Criminal Minds.” At the time, fans were eagerly waiting for the show's renewal for Season 13.

In 2016, the same thing happened when rumors swirled about the show's cancellation after Season 11. But then the show successfully had Season 12.
