just pulled this from screen rant has any one else heard a rumor about this or just me
Are you a fan of Criminal Minds but donât get your fill of stories from the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit)? Youâre in luck, as CBS is looking to take the show in way of CSI, JAG and recently, NCIS with a spinoff planned for next fall.
If youâre one of the 15 million viewers that tune into Criminal Minds each week, one shouldnât be too surprised to hear that theyâre trying to cash in on the shows success by replicating their already popular formula.
As with JAG and NCIS, the new show will not feature any current stars from the current show, but focus on a completely new team of agents that, in like fashion, we will be introduced to in a special crossover episode of Criminal Minds, slated to air next year. Current Minds writers/producers, Ed Bernero and Chris Mundy are expected to head the new show.
This news comes a week after their new spin off, NCIS: LA, premiered to 18.7 million viewers, making it the highest-rated new drama this season.
