The new spin-off will return for Season 2.
May 16, 2016
CBS announced today that Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders has been renewed for a second season. The freshman procedural drama premiered earlier this year as a mid-season replacement and has been a decent performer for the network on Wednesday nights.
Beyond Borders is the second spin-off in the Criminal Minds franchise and today's pickup ensures it will fare better than 2011's Suspect Behavior, which was cancelled after just one low-rated season.
It is unclear at this time if CBS will keep Beyond Borders as a mid-season entry for 2016-2017 or if it will move the show into its regular lineup in the fall.
