'Criminal Minds' Is On The Case For One Last Season

The 15th and final season for the CBS crime drama will give it a place in TV history.

Television is losing its “Minds.”

“Criminal Minds” will end its run as one of TV’s longest-running primetime dramas next season with a 10-episode farewell, Deadline reported Thursday.

The 15th season will be shot right after the CBS crime series wraps its currently-in-production finale for Season 14, according to the entertainment website.

At 15 seasons, “Criminal Minds” would catch “ER” in longevity, but would still trail classics like “Gunsmoke,” “Law & Order,” “NCIS” and others, Deadline noted.

“It is the quintessential CBS hit. We are so proud to have aired it,” CBS executive vice president of current programs, Amy Reisenbach, told “Entertainment Tonight.” “It speaks to everything we do best, which is air quality television.”

The show follows the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit profiling criminals to predict their next move. This season also highlights a prominent personal moment (SPOILER ALERT) ― the wedding between David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) and ex-wife Krytsall (Gail O’Grady), “ET” reported.

This season, the show is averaging 4.7 million viewers per episode on Wednesday, “though those numbers have typically risen noticeably in delayed viewing,” Variety wrote.
