The sixteenth season of the show returns from its mid-season break with a new episode on Friday, 13th January 2023, on Paramount+ in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries around the world, including in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
In “Criminal Minds: Evolution,” the FBI’s elite team of criminal profilers come up against their greatest threat yet, an UnSub who has used the pandemic to build a network of other serial killers. As the world opens back up and the network goes operational, the team must hunt them down, one murder at a time. Cast members from the original series reprising their roles include Joe Mantegna, A.J. Cook, Kirsten Vangsness, Aisha Tyler, Adam Rodriguez and Paget Brewster. Zach Gilford joins the dynamic cast as a recurring guest star in a season-long arc.
“Criminal Minds: Evolution” will continue and expand the beloved franchise for streaming audiences, blending serialized elements into the series’ format. This season continues the “Criminal Minds” series, the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, the best of the best who profiled the worst of the worst.
