There is still no confirmed release date for Criminal Minds: Evolution Season 2. However, reports show that the series is set to start production this year.

The first season of the Criminal Minds reboot premiered on November 2022. The earlier seasons of the series came out every year from 2005 until 2018, released sometime in the last quarter of the year. The 15th season came out in 2020.

If Criminal Minds: Evolution Season 2 follows the same trend, the season may premiere sometime between September to December 2023. Chief Programming Officer Tanya Giles said there was still so much we can expect to see from the series:

We’re thrilled to bring even more twisted storylines to our loyal fans of Criminal Minds: Evolution with the order of another season. The series has always been a consistent top performer for Paramount+ and fans have quickly embraced this new season with its more serialized elements.”

When was Criminal Minds: Evolution Season 2 Announced?

Criminal Minds: Evolution was renewed for a second season even before the series was complete. Paramount+ revealed that the last episode of the reboot series will premiere on February 9, 2023. They also announced that they plan to start the production of the second season sometime within this year.

Paget Brewster as Emily Prentiss

Most of the cast members from the earlier seasons of the show may be returning to reprise their roles in the second season of Criminal Minds: Evolution.

Returning Members of the Behavioural Analysis Unit

The first reboot showed us most of the team members brought back into the unit after a series of seemingly unrelated crimes all connect back to one particularly skilled and desperate unidentified subject (or UnSub).

We see Joe Mantegna lead the team as Senior Agent David Rossi, though it seems he has a lot of personal things he has to handle on top of being the head of BAU. Rossi is joined by Unit Chief Emily Prentiss, played by Paget Brewster, and Technical Analyst Penelope Garcia, played by Kirsten Vangness.

The team also still includes A.J. Cook as Agent Jennifer ‘JJ’ Jareau, Aisha Tyler as Dr. Tara Lewis, and Adam Rodriguez as Agent Luke Alvarez.

Who Else May Be Joining the BAU?

Two of the most beloved characters from the earlier seasons of Criminal Minds may also be returning, though there are still no confirmations about their participation.

Matthew Gray Gubler may hopefully return to play Dr. Spencer Reid. We may also still see Daniel Henney as Special Agent Matt Simmons.
