Fans are growing anxious over the possible cancellation of the hit series.


CBS has yet to make a final word about whether Criminal Minds is getting canceled after Season 13, as reported by Closer Weekly.

The riveting series pits a team of FBI profilers against a different serial killer each week.

Fans are getting worried about whether Criminal Minds will be renewed for Season 14. But CBS has always kept fans anxious about a possible cancellation of the series.

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. Fans also heard rumors about the show's cancellation after Season 11. But then the show successfully had Season 12.


The reason why CBS delays announcing the show's renewal each year is likely that Criminal Minds is not entirely owned by the network.

The series come from CBS Television Studios and ABC Studios. This means that renewing the series for another season entails much negotiation.

For this year, CBS has already confirmed the renewal of SEAL Team, S.W.A.T., The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, NCIS, Blue Bloods, Bull and Hawaii Five-O.


Criminal Minds, a police procedural crime drama television series created by Jeff Davis, premiered on September 22, 2005.

It is set primarily at the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico, Virginia. What makes Criminal Minds different from many procedural dramas is that it focuses on profiling the criminal rather than the crime itself.

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.
