Criminal Minds: Season Nine Renewal from CBS

Criminal Minds renewedFollowing some extended contract negotiations, CBS has renewed Criminal Minds for a ninth season.

The crime drama is still a very successful series for CBS and was considered a shoe-in for a renewal — until contract negotiations with the cast got in the way. The network was supposedly willing to cancel the show if the right players didn’t re-sign.

According to Deadline, Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook have all signed new two year deals. Showrunner Erica Messer signing a new contract last week.

Vangsness and Cook supposedly stuck together in the negotiations and tried to get salary parity with Moore and Matthew Gubler, their male counterparts. They didn’t get it but did end up receiving sizable pay raises.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear that Criminal Minds is coming back for a ninth year? Should it keep going for a 10th?

Yes, keep it going, but please please do something to make it as good as earlier seasons. (3rd 4th and 5th were my favs) I was always drawn to the intelligence of the show and the excellent mix of characters, but somethings amiss. My prediction re 9th season is that Strauss will be killed in next weeks finale, Hotch will get her job, and Morgan will in turn get to be head Honcho of the team explaining why he’s been distancing himself from Garcia (Needs to play the IT man, without quirky female attachment). It will suck for the fans, but appease his “gigantic you be trippin” male ego and propell his career. (He thinks). Just boils me that Kirsten and AJ were getting so much less for their work on CM then the guys. No rationalization trumps the fact that it’s just out & out WRONG.

ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS ON TV. SO HAPPY TO HEAR IT WILL BE BACK. HOPE ALL OF THE CAST WILL BE RETURNING. LOSING ANY OF THEM WOULD BE LIKE SAYING GOOD-BY TO A FAMILY MEMBER. LOVE THE SHOW.

Please keep it on until the actors are as old as me. LOL It’s the most intelligent crime show on television. The characters seem real with real day to day things we all live with, but they are solving the most heinous of crimes while trying to have a life.
