The long-running procedural drama Criminal Minds is celebrating 15 years since the show premiered in 2005. The series followed "a group of extraordinary FBI profilers who spend their days getting into the minds of psychopathic criminals." Though fans said goodbye to the CBS show in February 2020, some are wondering where they can binge-watch the series.
Currently, you can stream the first 12 seasons of Criminal Minds on Netflix, but many are wondering why the streaming service does not have the final three seasons available to stream? Keep reading to find out more about where you can watch Season 13 and on of Criminal Minds.
Where can I watch Season 13 of 'Criminal Minds'?
Seriously, why did Netflix stop adding future seasons following Season 12? Sadly, the final three seasons of Criminal Minds will most likely never appear on the streaming platform. The remaining seasons will probably have a similar fate as CBS's Hawaii Five-O, which was taken off of Netflix entirely.
Following the success of digital services such as Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Video, networks have gone on to launch their own platforms.
Now, the marketed is flooded with streaming services, such as Disney+ (Disney), Peacock (NBC), HBO Max (HBO), and CBS All Access (CBS).
Since launching CBS All Access, the network now streams new episodes and television shows from their platform. While you won't be able to watch Criminal Minds in its entirety on Netflix, you can do so on CBS All Access.
If you sign up for the program, you get your first seven days free. Following the one-week trial, it will cost customers $5.99 a month with limited commercials and $9.99 a month for a commercial-free plan.
Additionally, you can also purchase individual episodes or a season in its entirety on YouTube, iTunes, and Amazon Prime. This will typically cost people between $1.99 to $3.99, or between $23 to $35 for the whole season.
