A traditional police procedural is the best anchor for your television network or streaming service. With the new remake of “CSI: Vegas,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” became the first show to make a comeback, but it’s not the only one. After a 12-year hiatus, the original “Law & Order” is also back on television with a cast that includes both new and old actors. The return of “Criminal Minds,” which will get a reboot soon, would complete the resurrection trifecta.
The original programme, which aired on CBS for 15 seasons, focused on the cases handled by a knowledgeable team at the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU). Each episode featured the team profiling unidentified individuals in try to catch them thanks to their broad skills and captivating personalities. The revival has been in development for a while, despite the fact that the original series continues to draw viewers to Netflix.
When and where to watch the Criminal Minds Reboot
It was announced in February 2021 by CBS Paramount+ that “Criminal Minds” would be rebooted.
Given that it continued to be such a popular show on Netflix, the streamer was eager to bring it back. Behind “The Office” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Criminal Minds” was the third-most-streamed series on Netflix for 2020 prior to the announcement of the revival.
It’s hardly surprising that Paramount views “Criminal Minds” as a critical pillar for Paramount+ given that streaming performance and the prior numbers on CBS. The streaming service is also working on “The Real Criminal Minds,” a documentary series examining actual FBI profilers, in addition to the revival relaunch. Former series regular Paget Brewster claimed that further production of the reboot series appeared “unlikely” last year, although Paramount+ Original Scripted Series President Nicole Clemens stated that it was still “alive and thriving” as of February 2022. Clemens added that executive reorganisations at Paramount were to blame for the development delay.
What the Criminal Minds Reboot will be about
Each episode of the original “Perpetrator Minds” series covered a different case as the team developed a profile and eventually apprehended their criminal. The team’s diverse personalities would conflict and bounce off one another at the same time that the show delves into their personal lives. Police and crime procedurals are an excellent framework for a long-running television show because it’s a timeless and reliable concept.
However, the reboot will use a somewhat different approach. The team will work on a single case throughout the course of 10 episodes of the proposed series. That indicates a significant enough case to occupy the team’s attention for the whole of the season in addition to bringing them back. This will be a significant difference in how the show is presented because the original “Criminal Minds” only had a few two-part episodes over its 15 seasons. It would be interesting to see what kind of case the team takes on this time around because the last programme had a tendency to base its storylines on the current events.
At this time, it is unknown when the Paramount+ revival of “Criminal Minds” will debut.
What we know about the Criminal Minds reboot cast and crew
Fans shouldn’t be concerned about the reboot departing too much from the original because CBS Paramount is aiming to rehire executive producer and showrunner Erica Messer for the task. In addition, the initial cast changed considerably over the course of the play. Mandy Patinkin, Shemar Moore, Aisha Tyler, Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Matthew Gray Gubler, Thomas Gibson, Lola Glaudini, and Adam Rodriguez were among the show’s stars and supporting players until it concluded in 2020, along with a long list of one-time guest stars.

Although the contracts haven’t been finalised, Joe Mantegna, Kirsten Vangsness, Adam Rodriguez, A.J. Cook, Aisha Tyler, and Paget Brewster are all said to be involved. That’s a member of the core group from “Criminal Minds”‘ later seasons, which also includes agents JJ Jareau (Cook), Tara Lewis (Tyler), and Luke Alvez, Technical Analyst Penelope Garcia (Vangsness), and Unit Chief Emily Prentiss (Mantegna) (Rodriguez). The story also mentions that the contracts could last for several years, indicating that this won’t be a limited series.
