The CBS show, created by Jeff Davis, ran for 15 seasons and completed in February of 2020 with 324 episodes. The show focused on a group of serial killer profilers in the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI.

CBS is also planning to expand the “FBI” and “NCIS” show franchises with a “FBI: International” and “NCIS: Hawaii,” Variety reported.

This is all great news. If you haven’t watched “Criminal Minds” yet, I hope you will find the time to watch all 15 seasons. It was the show I chose to watch at the beginning of the coronavirus quarantine and it was the best decision I could have made.

The show will always keep you on your toes and if you love crime dramas, this might be the best one. “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” might be tied for first though.
