Criminal Minds Season 15 unfortunately is going to be the last-ever series of the CBS' American procedural crime drama television series. Since Season 14 was wrapped up, CBS renewed Season 15 without announcing the release date. The series is all set to bid adieu to its avid viewers but you should never think that it has been cancelled.
One of the main reasons why Criminal Minds Season 15 has been thought should mark end of the series is because it has been running since September 2005 and it has already displayed adequate story materials. It has already become one of the longest running series of CBS.
Alternatively, Criminal Minds Season 14 showed the least number of episodes in its history of near about 14 years. While all the previous seasons had episodes of 20 (Season 3) to 26 (Season 4), Season 14 aired only 15 episodes. Whereas, Criminal Minds Season 15 will reportedly feature even lesser number with just 10 episodes, EconoTimes noted.
Criminal Minds Season 15 is likely to return until early 2020, according to TV Line. The show will end with a total of 325 episodes. The trailer for fifteenth season has not been aired yet by CBS but we expect it in the coming months.
For the final series of Criminal Minds, we still don't have an announcement on the cast. But David Rossi (Joe Mantegna), Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) are all expected to come back in Season 15. On the other hand, Express hinted that Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore), who was regular between Season 1 and 11 and specially appeared in Season 12 and 13, is also likely to come back. However, Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) is not likely to be seen as Gibson as he was fired from the show in 2016.
"As we're closing a chapter on the series, I want to be sure that we're honouring all of those people who were here and the lives that we've all been invested in for so long," Erica Messer told TV Line.
Criminal Minds Season 15 starts shooting in spring 2019. We are expecting the premiere date to be announced soon.
