Despite the success of Criminal Minds, it looks like one of its spin-offs has failed to take hold. Recently, CBS revealed they’ve cancelled Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders after two seasons.
A crime procedural, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders revolves around the International Division of the FBI which investigates crimes and rescues Americans in peril abroad. The cast includes Gary Sinise, Alana De La Garza, Daniel Henney, Tyler James Williams, and Annie Funke.
Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders began with low ratings, and season two has dipped even further. So far, the season is averaging a 0.84 rating in the 18-49 demo and 4.99 million viewers, making it one of CBS‘ lowest-rated series for the 2016-2017 season. It seems the network hasn’t found a successor to Criminal Minds just yet.
However, despite low ratings, the show does have a loyal-if-small fan base. When we asked viewers if they thought Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders should be renewed, 79% said “yes.” Sadly, the fate of the series is beyond their control.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders? Are you sad this CBS series won’t have a third season?
