Long-running drama series Criminal Minds to end after 15 seasons

Sorry to break it to you sick, crime-obsessed freaks, but one of the greatest crime drama series of all time (after Law & Order: SVU, of course), Criminal Minds is coming to an end.

'It's really bittersweet, but I'm so, so grateful to CBS for giving us this heads-up, ' showrunner Erica Messer told TVLine.

"But they respect this series and the cast and the crew and the fans enough to end this properly".

"Criminal Minds" includes stars Joe Mantegna, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness and Paget Brewster. Next year's run will only consist of 10 episodes, which will go into production directly after they complete the current season's 15 episodes, according to Deadline.

Surviving R Kelly has been given a United Kingdom release date of next month by Lifetime sister channel Crime & Investigation. As the dark details of Kelly's years of abuse continue to unravel, each day new pieces of information are reported.

"We wanted to make sure Erica had the time and ability to write a season (14) finale that honors the characters and the fans", Reisenbach said.

The network announced that it has renewed the popular crime drama for its 15th but final season on Thursday. "As long as we have heroes who want to keep chasing the bad guys I feel like we could keep going, and going, and going". I know a lot of people my parents' age still enjoy the show to this day. Executive producer and director Glenn Kershar will be directing the emotional installment.

The fat lady is finally warming up for the fine folks at the BAU. Messer said there are no plans for a tragic ending.

A fan-favorite in reruns and on streaming, "Criminal Minds" has seen its linear ratings slip over time, with the now airing season averaging a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, according to Nielsen's live-plus-same-day numbers.
