The show was one of the last CBS dramas to be renewed last season, ultimately receiving a truncated 15-episode order for Season 14.

Criminal Minds is to end after one more season.

"It is the quintessential CBS hit". "It speaks to everything we do best, which is air quality television".

Its price was not disclosed, but it will be among LG's premium television lineups. LG's 2019 OLED and top range LCD TVs will include full-spec HDMI 2.1 ports.

Season 15 will be "more serialized" than is characteristic of the drama, bringing to screen a two-part season opener as well as a "major confession" and a Behavioral Analysis Unit member in peril. "First, mark your calendar for the Season 14 finale, Feb 6 at 10/9c", the show tweeted. There's also a way to undue that little ribbon and open it up again and keep telling stories because we're never going to run out of good guys catching bad guys.

A fan-favorite in reruns and on streaming, "Criminal Minds" has seen its linear ratings slip over time, with the now airing season averaging a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, according to Nielsen's live-plus-same-day numbers. "I would love to be able to see this brand live on for a very long time". Messer said there are no plans for a tragic ending.

As for the finale, Messer revealed the episode will be written by her and series star Kirsten Vangsness. "I don't have the endgame in mind yet", she said at the time. "So the jet won't crash, I can tell you that".
