Fans of perp-hunting before dawn and cyber-sleuthing with a cup of coffee (stirred with one finger, not two) after dark may get to head back to Quantico after all, as there’s been an exciting new update about the Criminal Minds revival. Created and produced by Jeff Davis, the CBS Studios procedural series Criminal Minds about the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) wrapped in 2020. After a successful 15-year-run on-air catching serial killers and unsuccessful run off-air catching flack for not being on-air, the series found new life thanks to a pandemic-era increase in streaming numbers due to fans binge-watching old seasons of the show. According to Nielsen Reports, the quarantine correlated with Criminal Minds being the third most-watched show on Netflix, clocking 35 billion streaming minutes in 2021, which led to an announcement that the crime drama is getting a reboot.
The Criminal Minds reboot is not dead and is still very much in development at Paramount Plus.Read MoreMovieWeb – Feed
