Soon, every single show on CBS will be a spinoff from another show on the network. 'CSI,' 'CSI: Miami,' 'CSI: NY,' CSI: [Insert City Here],' 'NCIS,' 'NCIS: L.A.,' 'NCIS: CBS L.A.' Maybe there'll even a future spinoff of 'The Mentalist' where we follow another law enforcement consultant who used to scam people with a fake psychic act and now sleeps on a mattress on the floor and drinks a lot of tea.
But before that we have the spinoff of 'Criminal Minds' coming up. The April 7 episode of the show will serve as a pilot for a spinoff series that would star Forest Whitaker as FBI profiler Sam Cooper who forms his own team of independent investigators after being away for several years. I'm sure that mystery will serve as a big back story for the new show. TV Fanatic has a bunch of pics from the episode, which will also feature Michael Kelly, Beau Garrett, and Matt Ryan.
