The Criminal Minds revival release date has finally been confirmed, and it’s sooner than you might think.

The reboot of the hit crime drama was confirmed on Paramount+ earlier this year, and filming just started last month.

Paget Brewster and Joe Mantegna will reprise their iconic roles as Emily Prentiss and David Rossi, once again leading the roster of FBI profilers.

It looks like there will be a quick comeback for the BAU gang as the new 10-episode series known as Criminal Minds: Evolution: will premiere on Thanksgiving.

The first two episodes will begin on November 24, followed by weekly airing before the mid-season finale on December 15.

Fortunately, we don’t have to wait too long as the break ends on January 12 and ends with new installments until February 9.

The Evolution revival takes place during the Covid-19 pandemic among those returning to the group with Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler), JJ Jareau (AJ Cook), Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and Luke Alvez (Adam Rodriguez).

Pouring the beans on what fans can expect from the fictional FBI team, showrunner Erica Messer discussed where the team was when the show restarted and said everyone was in a ‘very different place’.

‘We now have Prentiss promoted out of BAU unit chief. Rossi has taken his place as unit chief, but he’s going through something big, so he’s grieving in five stages when we meet him in the first two episodes,’ he told Entertainment Weekly in a fall preview.

While Alvez has been trying to help with the raw scenes, stay local for a while, and settle these cases, JJ and Lewis have answered every consultant call they’ve received in the past year, which means many nights are away. house.

‘The word from above, bureaucrats, is ‘Do more with less.’ I think we can all relate to that too. Our teams have shrunk and everyone still has the same amount of work to do.’

Despite the absence of Spencer Reid and Derek Morgan, played by Matthew Gray Gubler and Shemar Moore respectively, Erica spoke of their absence and explained that the characters were ‘not gone’.

“There will still be stuff on their desks,” he added. But if and when they come back, it’s up to them. Depends on your programs. I can’t promise anything right now. But that’s hope.’

Fingers got these programs reopened as soon as possible.

Criminal Minds: Evolution will premiere on Paramount+ on November 24.
