Leading up to the premiere of Criminal Minds: Evolution on Paramount+ Thanksgiving Day, let’s just say we have new stuff to celebrate.
First and foremost, how about a trailer? Below, you can take a quick look at what the streaming service has planned, and that includes some extremely dangerous threats, including some brought on by the global health crisis of the past couple of years. The goal here is for this show to look familiar and yet different — an evolution, if you will. (Sometimes, it’s fun to make jokes that are this obvious!)

Beyond just getting a chance to see the first two episodes on Paramount+ this Thanksgiving, CBS is also planning a little something here. The premiere is currently slated to air at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time on the network, a move clearly designed to get people subscribing to the surface. It makes sense, given that this franchise is so enormously popular — why wouldn’t the network want to milk this for everything that they can?
In general, Criminal Minds is one of the most popular global series out there; bringing the show back will obviously bring viewers to the streaming service in America, but that’s without even considering the international impact here. We expect this to be a next-level hit, and we are very much excited to see what happens. Save for Matthew Gray Gubler (who has moved on) and Daniel Henney (who is working on The Wheel of Time), every other cast member from the most-recent season of the show will be back. Hopefully, we’ll at least hear about what Reid and Simmons are up to.
