Having been on Netflix since 2014, criminal minds time on Netflix US has come to an end on Netflix in the US. All 12 seasons streaming on Netflix in the United States will leave the service on June 30, 2022 to reside exclusively in their new permanent home.
The show was first added to Netflix in 2014 and received annual season drops on Netflix after the season finale on CBS where it aired. After being on Netflix for nearly a decade, the show is now slowly starting to be removed from Netflix, with seasons 1-12 now confirmed to depart on June 30.
criminal minds is a police procedural series that follows a group of extraordinary FBI profilers who spend their days getting inside the minds of psychopathic criminals.
The series ended in 2021 with its fifteenth season, which meant that the series ended with a total of 324 episodes. It also saw two spin-off series that were named Suspicious behaviour and Across borders†
Netflix wasn’t the best place to watch criminal minds for quite some time as we have covered extensively. As of season 13, Netflix has not licensed any newer seasons of the show. Instead, they streamed exclusively on Paramount+ and these newer seasons are also available on Hulu, but probably not forever.
As we pointed out, Netflix is currently streaming seasons 1-12 of the show. These are all 12 set to: departure on June 30, 2022.
The loss is big for Netflix. Nielsen data says the show was Netflix’s third most-watched title in 2020, with 35.41 billion minutes of watch time. In 2021, it was the most popular show on Netflix in the United States with 33.9 billion minutes viewed. The show also dominates the top 10 list acquired by Nielsen every week through 2022. Each week, the series continues to rack up over 500 million viewer minutes each week.
Paramount’s NCIS will follow soon, although our information suggests it won’t be for a few more years yet.
where will criminal minds streaming after leaving Netflix?
The good news is that criminal minds already streaming in his new home, as we discussed above.
All 15 seasons will continue to stream exclusively on Paramount+. The show is also getting a reboot on Paramount+.
Internationally, the show is still distributed by Disney, where the show is available on the Star tab of Disney+. Once the show completely leaves Netflix, it probably means that criminal minds will not move in the long run.
