the show criminal minds hold a very special place in your heart when the show ended in 2020 after 15 seasons and 363 episodes 

the police drama has now gotten a renewal order from the streaming service paramount two years after wrapping up its victorious 15-season run and a massive 324 episodes on the network in 2020. 

Which were both spin-offs of the original criminal minds didn’t have the same level of success as the original and were canceled after their first and second seasons respectively. 

Numerous more behavioral analysis shows ostensibly inspired by the popularity of criminal minds have debuted since but neither seem to catch on. 

here’s what we know for sure so far according to Paget Brewster filming for the series recently started on august 8. it is said to have 10 episodes  

according to the deadline, the cast is assigned multi-year contracts so if the show is successful at paramount it may run even longer 

On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24, just on Paramount+, the 10-episode season will debut with two episodes. Up until the mid-season finale on Thursday, December 15.

When the season returns on Thursday, Jan. 12, all-new episodes will air every week until the season finale on Thursday, Feb. 9.
