Criminal Minds: Evolution, the revival of the hit crime-solving series, is set to release its highly anticipated Season 2. The show, which initially concluded in 2020, re-emerged on Paramount+ and quickly became a fan favorite. Season 1 wrapped up in February 2023 and received positive feedback, leading to the announcement of a second season in January 2024. However, production delays caused by the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes pushed the release date to spring 2024.
Despite the setbacks, fans remain excited for the new season, which promises 10 new episodes filled with intriguing criminal mysteries. Season 2 will continue to explore the evolving narrative and characters, with unresolved plot elements from Season 1 potentially being further explored. The cast, including familiar faces like Joe Mantegna and Paget Brewster, will return for the new season, with the possibility of original cast members returning as well. Viewers can catch up on previous seasons of Criminal Minds and Criminal Minds: Evolution on Paramount+.
