Like many of the other long-running procedural dramas on CBS, the ratings for Criminal Minds keep slowly sinking each season. Will this be the year that the show is cancelled or will it be renewed for a 12th season instead? Stay tuned.
Criminal Minds continues to follow the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) out of Quantico, Virginia. This season’s cast is Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J. Cook, Kirsten Vangsness, and Thomas Gibson.
