Okay friends, fans, and funsubs – it’s official! The final season of our beloved show is ON the CBS schedule and it’s a slam-bang power sprint to the finish! As announced by Deadline, we’re looking at a two hour premiere on January 8, with another two hour finale on February 19. Criminal Minds has been given their original time slot throughout the run: Wednesdays at 9/8c, which makes me happy. CM always fit better at 8 in my town.
The fan base is already riled up and excited to have the first official news. As CM Executive Producer Harry Bring says:
“I’m thrilled with the timing – no pre-emptions or delays, and we get our time slot back. I think the fans will truly enjoy this final season of our show. I came aboard in season 6, so it’s been 9 years of my life with these friends, this family, and I feel very lucky to have been a part of such a rare group of people, and to have been given the time for the sendoff we’re getting. I hope you all tune in!”
We also got our first glimpse of Reid’s reported new love interest, Max, as played by Rachael Leigh Cook.
