The procedural has been picked up for a 10-episode final season, CBS announced on Thursday. The last run of episodes is slated to air in the 2019-20 broadcast season.
A fan-favorite in reruns and on streaming, “Criminal Minds” has seen its linear ratings slip over time, with the currently airing season averaging a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, according to Nielsen’s live-plus-same-day numbers. The show was one of the last CBS dramas to be renewed last season, ultimately receiving a truncated 15-episode order for Season 14.
