Criminal Minds is a US crime procedural series that focuses on an elite team of profilers who work out of the Behavior Analysis Unit of the FBI. In each episode, these agents of the BAU try to decipher the behavior of the criminal (who is commonly referred to in the series as an "Unsub" or "Unknown Subject") rather than strictly solving the crime. The series premiered in 2005 in the US on CBS. Criminal Minds would spawn two spinoffs: Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, which starred Forest Whitaker, and aired for one season in 2011, and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, which starred Gary Sinise, and premiered in March of 2016 and aired for two seasons until 2017. The show was renewed for its fifteenth and final season (a shortened season consisting of only 10 episodes), which premiered in the US in January of 2020 and aired until February of 2020. In September of 2022, it was announced that Criminal Minds would be revived as a limited series, titled Criminal Minds: Evolution, which is set to premiere on the streaming service Paramount+ on Thanksgiving Day.
