Season 14 Ratings

Will CBS cancel or renew Criminal Minds for season 15? Thus far, CBS has only ordered 15 episodes for this year, but that could change. If the network does want a 15th season though, the studio will have to make new deals with the cast, which means higher costs. Right now, I think it is likely to end, so I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for Criminal Minds cancellation or renewal news alerts.
