Jennifer Love Hewitt may have left Criminal Minds this year but the show will be back. CBS has renewed the venerable series for an 11th season on the network.
Criminal Minds continues to follow the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) out of Quantico. In addition to Hewitt, this season’s cast included Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, A.J. Cook, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness, and Joe Mantegna.
In season six, Criminal Minds has been averaging a 2.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.31 million viewers. Year-to-year, that’s down by 14% in the demo and down by 5% in viewership.
That’s obviously not a good trend for the ratings but it’s important to remember that most of the network’s shows are down as well. Plus, Criminal Minds is CBS’ third highest-rated dramatic series so it wasn’t in any danger of being cancelled.
Word is that negotiations are underway with some of the castmembers and the studio is looking for ways to trim the budget. One way or another, the show will be back next season.
What do you think? Do you like the Criminal Minds TV show? Would you be upset if some of the castmembers didn’t return?
please do not cancel this show. i have watched it from the beginning. it is so refreshing to watch such talented cast members blend into a family at work and outside. they are all different walks in life with different personalities that just make that show the tops. i love little jack and his story lines with his dad and the episode when haley was killed off, was by far the best episode ever. jobs that these characters protray are so real to us military families. the fact that mathew and vanessa co produced keeps them happy . some of… Read more »
Can’t cancel criminal minds best show on tv. I would like to see guidian come back as a guest role. That would be cool to see guidian and rossi solve a case.
Gideon was murdered though 🙁
They did okay with getting a replacement, not usual.
Bring back Pagent Brewster and get rid of Jennifer Love-Hewitt. Rest of cast are must keeps.
I love criminal minds never miss a episode.I like the story lines very interesting. Will watch the show forever.
I absolutely love ❤ criminal minds I watch it ion television and my netflix account. I would be sad if some of the cast did not show, this is literally the best thrilling crime watching serie. Im a huge fan . lets go season 11 with many more to come.
i don’t mind Jennifer Love Hewitt leaving the show. In fact, I was worried when she came to the show that it was going to have been their last season. I am not within the age range projected by whomever rates the show, but I can say that it has been such a good program all these years and it would be a ‘durn shame’ for it to be cancelled. My husband and I have enjoyed it all these years. Such a good cast, with the personalities melding so nicely all these years. I do miss certain characters. We would… Read more »
Do not cancel Criminal Minds! It is one of very few shows that deal with the reality of everyday life. Honestly, I have to admit that I stopped watching the show after viewing only 20 min. of season 10 episode I. I just felt Hewitt was out of her element. She was good in Ghost Whisperer and shows of that nature but she is definitely not ‘crime fighter’ material.
Didn’t get into it until it was on Netflix, but the show is great. Just like other shows it takes a while to gain the demographic. The last thing I want to see is another great show bite the dust. Hewitt was a great addition.
please do not take criminal mind series its very interesting especially the dr and the captain and the grace. do continue
I love this show. I wouldn’t want any of the cast members to change. Love Hewitt did a good job but I could live without her. I’d rather have Paget Brewster back.
I think they should not replace Hewitt. The remaining cast works well together. Apply her salary,or a replacement, to negotiating the others.
criminal minds is my favourite tv show and I love all casts, hotch ,morgan. spencer ,garcia ,rossi , jj , and even little jack i love all of them , criminal minds without any of this lovely casts isn’t criminal minds anymore…
I have been watching this show from day one I hate that they changed some people already but if they change any more I think I will stop watching it this is a awesome shoe and the prod
I just recently discovered criminal minds and I just love the series. The characters that have remained consistent is one of the main reasons I watch the show. I don’t think any of the regular cast memebers should leave.
As long is not spencer, hotch, j.j and Garcia and Ross
As long as it’s not Hotch!
