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 don’t get your fill of stories from the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit)? You’re 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 you’re one of the 15 million viewers that tune into Criminal Minds each week, one shouldn’t be too surprised to hear that they’re 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.

I have heard that rumor but unfortunately I can't tell you exactly where or when, but I know I did hear about a CM spin off and I heard about it in the past couple of weeks, though it could be the same source you have.
