Joe Mantegna, A.J. Cook, Kirsten Vangsness, and Paget Brewster Keep “Criminal Minds: Evolution” Alive
So far the reboot series Evolution is one of the top five series on Paramount+. It hasn’t come as a surprise that Criminal Minds: Evolution was renewed for a Season 2. The original cast members like Shemar Moore, Thomas Gibson, and Matthew Gray Gubler, aren’t reprising their roles. ABC Signature and CBS Studios produce the Paramount+ reboot series. Despite the different approaches to how the show runs, the team still uses its psychological assessing abilities to solve crimes. Criminal Minds was a unique way of showing a crime thriller series. Fans still want the Behavioral Analysis Unit, since Criminal Minds: Evolution will have a Season 2. The spin-off series like Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders failed to draw in audiences like the original, but with familiar faces like Joe Mantegna and A.J. Cook, the show has hope of sticking around for a bit.
Watch the season finale of Criminal Minds: Evolution when it airs on February 9 on Paramount+.
