Criminal Minds: CBS still undecided over the length of season 14
David Rossi, portrayed by talented Joe Mantegna, will be back with his gang for another season of Criminal Minds, CBS announced on Wednesday.
One of CBS's most popular FBI crime dramas, the latest season of Criminal Minds will also have a new slot and will air at 10 pm every Tuesday. The show was listed on CBS's fall schedule and fans of the show are now speculating if the series will continue for another season.
Speaking with the press, Kelly Kahl, CBS's entertainment president, revealed that the studio has not decided how many episodes the latest season will have.
However, it is speculated that the season may be a shorter one with just 13 episodes, much lesser than the usual 22 episodes.
The cast for season 14 has been decided but, Kahl said that, if they were to produce one more season, they would still have to speak to the core cast.
"Never say never with a show like Criminal Minds," she reportedly told Deadline, since the show that premiered in 2005 has "a very passionate audience".
The show's time slot has also been moved by an hour, from 9 pm to 10 pm, and it appears to be working well for CBS. Everybody likes a late night FBI drama, we guess.
Criminal Minds explores the darkest corners of the FBI crime base. The team headed by David Rossi solves high profile cases that require experts from various field. The team does what law enforcement ideally aims to do – stop a crime before it happens. Each character has their talents and, together, they are unbeatable.
The finale of season 13 left us with a lot of questions and these will be answered in the upcoming season.
The show also stars Paget Brewster, AJ Cook, Mathew Gray Gubler, Daniel Henney, Damon Gupton, Adam Rodriguez, Aisha Taylor and Kristen Vangness.
Erica Messer will be the showrunner for this season as well.
