Sad news for Criminal Minds fans who enjoyed the series on Netflix! The hit series, which ran for 15 seasons on CBS, will be leaving the streaming platform in 2022. Even though the series is still available on other platforms, it was a popular show for Netflix viewers. However, the time has come to see Criminal Minds leaving Netflix sooner than expected.

Having run from 2005 to 2020, the series was pivotal in introducing us to the Behavioral Analysis Unit and how to study the, well, criminal mind. We got to fall in love with the special agents involved for over a decade both on television and through streaming platforms.

According to Variety, Criminal Minds was the streaming service’s top-viewed show in 2021, with an estimated viewing time of 33.9 billion minutes.

This was all despite the fact that the platform only had the first 12 seasons available. Unfortunately, this will soon change.

Criminal Minds leaving Netflix in June 2022

So when is Criminal Minds leaving Netflix? It will be available until June 29, 2022.

It’s always sad to see a favorite show leaving, especially one we can binge watch during the summer months! At least fans can enjoy the first few weeks of summer with the BAU before saying goodbye on June 28.

However, fear not! The series will be available on other streaming platforms.

Paramount+ has all 15 seasons of the show on its service while Hulu has the last three seasons available.

Criminal Minds also has a reboot in the works, with most cast members from the series set to return. Even though we have to say goodbye to one of our beloved shows, at least there are always new ones on the horizon! Check out this list of Netflix shows to watch if you’re in the mood to find a new series to love!
