The long-running series Criminal Minds has been renewed for a 15th and final season.

"It's really bittersweet, but I'm so, so grateful to CBS for giving us this heads-up", showrunner Erica Messer told TVLine about the final season news.

According to Deadline, the network has decided that it will use the abridged season to wrap up all the series' loose ends before sending them off into the sunset.

Throughout the years, the show has starred Thomas Gibson, Matthew Gray Gubler, Mandy Patinkin, Shemar Moore, Paget Brewster and Amber Heard.

But on the same day, Ajith Kumar starrer Viswasam is also releasing, the movie must give hard competition to Petta . According to an estimate, the movie must touch the 100 crore mark in its journey.

Filming for the farewell season, which will consist of 10 episodes, will begin in the spring and then air in the 2019-20 broadcast season. The crime series, which is show-run by executive producer Erica Messer, follows an elite team of Federal Bureau of Investigation profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, attempting to anticipate their next moves before they strike again. The cast and crew are now filming the Season 14 finale and will remain in continuous production to knock out the last 10 episodes. "As long as we have heroes who want to keep chasing the bad guys I feel like we could keep going, and going, and going".

Even so, Messer expects the series finale to be a "tearjerker".

"My gut is tearjerker probably because that's how I'll be feeling", she said. "So my guess is tearjerker more than anything else, that's how I'd describe it". "I know it's a drama, but I'm less likely to injure or write someone off in a way that says they're not breathing anymore". That's some rarified air "Criminal Minds" has found itself in.
