Nearly a year after the “Criminal Minds” series was announced to come back to life, under the Paramount + wand, no new news has been released as to when we could see the natural continuation of beloved evening.
However, six members of the original cast, including Joe Mantegna, Kirsten Vangsness, Adam Rodriguez, AJ Cook, Aisha Tyler and Paget Brewster, have announced that they may return to the small screen in “Criminal Minds.”
According to an exclusive Deadline news, the completion of the contracts was suspended because the studio responsible for “Criminal Minds”, ABC Signature, wanted to enter into an agreement with the executive producer of the serial film, Erica Messer. Negotiations with Messer are still ongoing.

According to the same news, Mantegna, Vangsness, Rodriguez, Cook, Tyler and Brewster would be ready to conclude negotiations once Messer’s situation is resolved. The bad news is that Matthew Gray Gubler and Daniel Henney will be missing from the cast, the latter currently playing “The Wheel Of Time”.
Details of the plaintiffs’ plea for “Criminal Minds” are unclear at the moment, but according to sources, they could continue for many years to come, and if there are additional “Criminal Minds” series in the future, it would require them to return.
On its way to the small screen, the new “Criminal Minds” have undergone several major changes. It was announced with great pomp by Paramount + in February last year, but since then there seems to have been silence.
In addition, on July 31, a message posted on Twitter by a fan tried to disappoint people and said he felt that the franchise “seems to be dead.” However, Pamount + representatives insisted on disproving the rumors and added that the new series is more than a certainty and will be able to be seen, at some point, on TV.
