What’s next for Criminal Minds? Recently, CBS Entertainment chief Kelly Kahl spoke with Deadline about the future of the TV show.
The long-running crime drama follows the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) out of Quantico, Virginia. The cast includes Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J. Cook, Kirsten Vangsness, Adam Rodriguez, Daniel Henney, and Aisha Tyler.
During this year’s summer TCA press conference, Kahl revealed they may be more episodes in store for season 14 of Criminal Minds. As previously reported, the network has ordered only 15 episodes for the upcoming season:
As scheduling evolves and we try to get more original episodes on air, we have to cut and paste and sometime trimming episodes on some of those shows to get more originals on the air. They possibly can get a couple of more episodes. It depends where they are in production, they will let us know when (we need to make that call).”
And what about the future of the series? Will season 14 be the final season? Kahl says that’s to be decided:
I’m not saying this is the last season. We will have an honest discussion with them at the right time.”
What do you think? Do you watch Criminal Minds? How many more seasons do you want?
