Netflix Removed ‘Criminal Minds’ From Its Library? Where Can You Watch the Mystery Thriller?

Each time the suspenseful theme music of Criminal Minds plays, there is an excitement for a new thrilling story. The show has remained one of the best binge-watch shows spanning fifteen seasons. Criminal Minds was available to stream on Netflix until the platform removed the show. The series revolves around FBI investigations covering an array of criminal cases. Each is unique in its way. As the show’s name suggests, the investigators study the psychological and behavioral patterns of criminals for case solving.

Of course, Netflix wouldn’t have let the CBS show go away so easily. But Netflix has long since gained new competitors. This didn’t allow for the streaming giant to renew its license for the show. And with that, the mystery thriller was gone from Netflix’s library. This leads to the question, where can you watch Criminal Minds now? Will it ever be back on Netflix again? Well, here is some news for the fans.

Has Netflix removed Criminal Minds? We have an update

Despite the show’s sad departure in late June, Netflix has managed to bring it back. Oh yes! All the seasons, except the last three, are back for you to ‘Netflix n chill’. As for the last three seasons, they are available to stream on Paramount+. The American police drama series became famous for both its plot and well-developed characters. Thanks to its evolution, it garnered viewers years after the show ended, and Netflix is well aware of its value.

The show led to a couple of spin-offs, including a South Korean adaptation and a video game. To add to it, Paramount+ also announced reviving the show last month. Most of the original cast like Joe Mantegna, Kirsten Vangsness, Adam Rodriguez, A.J. Cook, Aisha Tyler, and Paget Brewster will likely return.


In a news source from Deadline, there will be 10 episodes that will entail a dangerous search for a serial killer who created a network of serial killers during the pandemic that goes live when the world opens up again. Until that happens, we can refresh our memories starting right from the first episode. Criminal Minds is available on Netflix now.
