Criminal Minds Is Set To Return For Its 10th Season
Fans of Shemar Moore and the show Criminal Minds can rejoice as CBS has provided a release date for the show’s 10th season! Criminal Minds show runner Erica Messer had some interesting things to say regarding the show’s next season, some of which may prove to be more exciting than even the release date itself.
First, although the full cast may be pictured, that doesn’t mean their fates are safe. The characters depicted may or may not be returning to Criminal Minds, and this leaves the surprise factor alive for fans eagerly awaiting the 10th season premier. On Tuesday, June 24th, CBS made the announcement that the new season will start on October 1st, to give the cast and crew a much deserved summer-long break before the exciting season 10 is slated to begin. Along with the show runner, several members of the cast were also interviewed recently, and what they had to say certainly did its job to drum up the excitement!
As fans know, some plotlines left knots untied after the season finale, and these loose ends will not be ignored for season 10. Actress A.J. Cook stated in a recent interview that “I will say that how Season 9 ends will directly impact Season 10…”, thereby leading fans to believe that the new season will pick up right where it left off, and give the fan base a satisfying conclusion to some of the storylines which may have questions needing answers.
In another interesting development, Joe Mantegna, who plays special agent David Rossi, will be responsible for directing an episode in the upcoming season, just as he did with episode 13 of season 9, titled “The Road Home”. The episode is to be filmed in mid-November, and Mantegna recently said in an interview that he expects it to air at some time right after the holidays in early 2015.
With all of the news circling around this new season, and the interviews being given by the cast and crew, there is quite a bit to get excited about right now for Criminal Minds fans!
