Great news! Criminal Minds has been renewed for another season!
According to an article published by CBS on March 13, the hit show “Criminal Minds” has been renewed for its 10th season, which is set to air during the 2014-2015 season.
CBS reports that officials have decided to bring “Criminal Minds” back for Season 10. “Criminal Minds” follows the stories of a team of profilers from the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit. It first aired in September 2005, and has remained hit ever since.
“Criminal Minds” is one of 20 series returning to CBS for the 2014-2015 season. The others include “NCIS,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “CSI, Hawaii Five-0,” “Blue Bloods,” “Elementary,” “The Good Wife,” and more.
CBS also signed a three-year broadcast deal with “The Big Bang Theory,” and agreed to bring back the long-running reality series “Survivor” for two more editions.
There has been no word on which of the cast members of “Criminal Minds” plan to return for Season 10.
You can catch new episodes of “Criminal Minds” on CBS on Wednesdays at 9p.m.
I’ve been a bit slack with the news feed here, and forgetting to update with links to the latest screencaps. Check them out below!
CBS’ “Criminal Minds” is one of the most-watched dramas on television. Thomas Gibson plays the leader of an elite FBI profiling team, special agent Aaron Hotchner.
In the show’s 200th episode, which airs on Wednesday night, Gibson and team have to find two of their own members who are kidnapped.
With the show’s milestone coming up, Gibson told the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts that they “weren’t sure” it would last a season.
“One of the nice things was that expectations for the show were reasonable – they weren’t too high” he said. “When expectations are really high, you’re doomed. By maybe the middle of the first season, we’d found an audience and then we kind of caught this juggernaut of a show.”
He told the co-hosts that he believes the reason the show is so popular is the way they delve into the criminal psyche.
“When I read stories about these unspeakable things that people do to each other, I wonder what happened in this person’s life to make them capable of that,” he said. “I think that’s a universal theme and the show does very well all over the world and I think that’s part of the reason.”
Gibson said that the show is “absolutely disconcerting” in how it looks into the mind of a killer.
“We all know about stranger danger and all of that – it’s been hammered into us for so many years, but it’s the neighbor who suddenly has bodies in the back yard,” he said.
The character Gibson plays on “Criminal Minds” is very different from his comedic role as Greg Montgomery in the hit television show “Dharma and Greg.” Gibson said that he’s “pretty unfunny these days” as special agent Hotchner.
“He’s trying too much – perhaps too much focus on his part, but he’s trying desperately to do the job as best as he can and juggle being a single dad,” he said.
Also, Gibson said that actual members of the FBI behavioral unit taught him “not discount anything and “to pay attention at all times,” he said might be part of the reason why his character is “too intense.”
“I just directed an episode where we, it’s based on a true story … of a retired profiler, who’s actually a writer on our staff now, had solved at the end of his last year of working with the unit. And he basically said that he walked into this house … and there was a bag of concrete mix leaned up against the house and he said ‘That’s not a good thing,” said Gibson. “It could easily have been missed, but he said ‘I went back and looked at the picture and thought that’s not an accident.’”
CBS celebrated the 200th episode of Criminal Minds with some solid growth. The procedural jumped six-tenths of a point in the key demo for a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49 — matching a season best. It also marked the show’s largest audience, 12.8 million, since May 2012. The lift helped drive CSI (2.0 adults) up as well. The 10 p.m. show was up by four-tenths of a point, giving CBS nightly averages of a 2.1 rating with adults 18-39 an 10.7 million viewers.
The Middle (2.2 adults) shed a tenth of a point from its most recent episode, while Suburgatory (1.7 adults) climbed two-tenths with an original lead-in. Modern Family (3.5 adults) improved by a tenth of a point from its last new outing, and Super Fun Night (1.6 adults) improved by three-tenths. Nashville (1.3 adults) tied a series low at 10 p.m., down two-tenths of a point. The night brought an average 1.9 adults rating and 6.7 million viewers to the network.
More Olympic anticipation on NBC brought special How to Raise an Olympian (1.1 adults). The softer lead-in led to a dip for Law & Order: SVU (1.8 adults, down two-tenths), though Chicago P.D. (1.7 adults) remained steady. NBC brought in a 1.5 rating with adults 18-49 and 5.6 million viewers for Wednesday.
