Criminal Minds seasons, ranked from worst to best
Since 2005, the agents of the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) have been delving into the psyche of gruesome serial killers on the CBS procedural Criminal Minds, while in the process, finding love, losing loved ones, and exploring their own past traumas. Though the original series ended after a highly successful 15-season run, it didn't take long for the BAU to make its return. In late 2022, a new installment, Criminal Minds: Evolution, launched on Paramount+ and reunited members of the unit to take down a network of serial killers formed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To celebrate this next chapter, let's dive into Criminal Minds history as EW shares its ranking of the seasons from worst to best. (Plenty of spoilers ahead!)
