CBS has renewed Criminal Minds for a 12th season. The long-running procedural drama continues to be a strong entry in the eye network's lineup, with its most-recent season ranking in the Top 10 dramas among adults 18-49 as well as total viewers.
While the original Criminal Minds has stood the test of time, its spin-offs have yet to prove their lasting power. 2011's Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior was short-lived, and this year's mid-season entry Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders is still awaiting news of a second season, though a renewal appears likely at this point.
