Criminal Minds fans had some potentially bad news this week. It appears that a previously announced revival of the series may not be moving forward at Paramount+.
Paget Brewster, who appeared on the drama as FBI agent Emily Prentiss, responded to a question about the revival with a tweet that makes it sound the series is not moving forward.
No, and sadly, we think it’s dead.I’ll let you know if there is any progress but it seems unlikely. Which is a bummer.

However, Variety reports that a source close to the development of the revival revealed to them that the series is still in active development. It’s difficult to know which statement is accurate.
Criminal Minds aired for fifteen seasons on CBS. Paramount+ officially announced the revival in February. It was described this way in a large press release about the streaming service’s upcoming exclusive programming:
Criminal Minds – top rated series in broadcast and streaming returns with a new scripted series that brings the team back together to investigate a single, fascinating case over 10 episodes.
What do you think? Were you looking forward to the revival of Criminal Minds? Are you sad that it might not happen after all?
Love to see it back,only if Hotch!
comes back! He was a major character in the series,he made the show more professional and realistic. After all he was the boss that glued everything together. Thomas Gibson is a great actor.
PLEASE , PLEASE come back .. nothing else is on
Please please pleaseeeee bring it back!!! Criminal minds is my absolute favorite show of all time!!!
I really already miss Criminal Minds. It was my family’s favorite. We currently are watching reruns but they are getting old.
Actors are always the last to know anything, so unless she’s in direct contact with whomever the show runner and producers are of the revival (and I’d say 50-50 on this) she might not have all the up-to-date information.
Besides, look how freekin’ long STAR TREK:SECTION 31 has been in development at CBSAA/P+ – and it’s still not ready to go into pre-production!
I have all the seasons on DVD, and I watch them all the time. I’d love to see Joe M and the others again even in a two hour movie!!! Let’s pray we see them again. Fans would love it!!
