Will Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook Return for 'Criminal Minds' Season 13?

Criminal Minds is continuing into season 13 after a year that saw quite the cast shake-up. Season 13 might not quite right the ship when it comes to the cast, however. Deadline is reporting that Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook's future with the show is a little uncertain.

Should 'Criminal Minds' Leave Scratch Around for Another Season?

Criminal Minds left us with a cliffhanger in the season 12 finale for the first time since season 3. And it was all about the show's antagonist, Mr. Scratch, who has been taunting the BAU team for years. At this point, even though Mr. Scratch is clearly good at what he does, as he's able to slip through the cracks way too many times -- especially considering he's up against a team of the best -- it's time for him to go. While I agree with showrunner Eric... more Comments

Were There Too Many New Faces on the BAU in 'Criminal Minds' Season 12?

Season 12 was one of change for the BAU on Criminal Minds. Sure, the team has had members leave before, but not to this extent.

Prentiss returned to the team and took over leading it. Luke Alvez was brought in from the Fugitive Task Force as the hunt for the escaped convicts continued. When Emily ... more Comments

'Criminal Minds' Ends Season 12 with a Cliffhanger

Criminal Minds has always had a way of incorporating fear, shock and feel-good moments into an hour-long episode. The season finale "Red Light" officially ended Reid's prison drama. He faced off with Cat Adams and dealt with her on a psychological level. He not only helped the team figure out where his mother was being held, but he also faced some of his own emotional struggles. The secret that Cat was trying to get Reid to admit to is that the two of them deserved each ... more Comments

Why Everything Reid Went Through in 'Criminal Minds' Season 12 Could Make Him Stronger
