As reported by the site Deadline, the television network is preparing a new season of the successful series based on a group of specialists in criminal profiles for Paramount+, the new ViacomCBS platform that will replace the streaming service CBS All Access.

Although the project is in an early stage, the specialized site reported that it is a priority for the chain to keep the creative team and a good number of the actors who were part of the cast of the series for this new season.

The reasons behind the return of Criminal Minds

While the long-running history of Criminal Minds came to an end on February 19, 2020, the success of the series continued on streaming platforms and reruns throughout the world.

In fact, one of the reasons CBS Television plans to resume its co-production with The Mark Gordon Company and ABC Studios is the great reception that Criminal Minds has on Netflix, where it is listed as one of the most viewed titles on the platform.

The return of Criminal Minds which originally starred Mandy Patinkin, Shemar Moore, Joe Mantegna, Aisha Tyler, Matthew Gray Gubler, Thomas Gibson, Lola Glaudini and Adam Rodriguez, is planned for the near future... stay tuned!
