Crime dramas have to be the favorite genre for the T.V. fanatics. However, not all crime dramas have had the opportunity to premiere till the 15th episode, except Criminal Minds, Created by Jeff Davis; the series first premiered in 2005, and so far, it has managed to keep a rating of 8.1/10 on IMDB. You would think that with the endless episodes the series has, it would get cluttered.
However, Criminal Minds has proven that Old is good, and the more seasons, the better it gets. Two spin-offs have been made of the series, but they did not do as well as the original has. Fans who found it hard saying goodbye to the series after seventeen years now have all the reasons to smile after the show was renewed for the sixteenth episode. Here is everything we know
Criminal Minds Season 16 Release Date: When will it air?
The show was renewed in 2022 despite allegations of cancellation, but Paramount has yet to give an official date for the crime drama premiere. The famous David Rossi teased the show’s release date in a tweet on July 13. Filming of the show has not started but is scheduled to begin on August 21. If the filming goes as planned, then a high chance is that the show will be ready by the end of 2022 or early 2023. The number of episodes the series will have remains a mystery, but best believe they will capture the criminal minds in the most dynamic way possible.
Criminal Minds Season 16 Cast: Who will be in?
Most of the cast will reprise their roles except Mathew Gubler, who plays Spencer Reid, the fans’ favorite and Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T.).

Moore, who stars as Derek Morgan, starred until the 11th season when he left to pursue other projects.

Paramount is yet to announce any additional cost.
