Criminal Minds Season 16 Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer & More

Many T.V. fans are captivated by crime dramas, so it is easy to understand why. It should be noted that not all crime dramas have had the opportunity to premiere until the 15th episode, with the exception of Criminal Minds.

As of now, the series has managed to maintain an IMDB rating of 8.1/10 since it first premiered on May 15, 2005. There would seem to be a tendency for the show to get cluttered with its endless episodes.


Although there are several seasons yet to go for Criminal Minds, the show has already proven that the older it gets, the better it becomes.

Criminal Minds Season 16 Plot

Criminal Minds Season 16 Plot

After we watched the series Criminal Minds for the 15th season, we could see that there was a kidnapping of a father and daughter in Washington, D.C., at the end of the series.

Then Reid and the hitwoman Cat Adams become involved in another confrontation, which intimidates Reid from going ahead with his planned date with Maxine.

As a result of a shooting in Denver, a psychotic delusion was at the center of the BAU’s argument at that time, which included false memories and the Schrodinger equation, which were being linked to the crimes.

The Special Agent named Andrew Mendoza, with whom Prentiss is in a relationship, is also evaluating the future of his career as well as Prentiss’s future together.

Later in the same year, bodies of prostitutes and businessmen are found in the Beaumont, Texas, area. As a result, the BAU tries to find themselves in the middle of a murderous encounter at that particular moment.

As J.J. is grappling with the decision on how to proceed with his job offer, Prentiss is also grappling with the decision he must make.

Rossi has passed a year since the near-death experience that led him to seek medical help. After Everett Lynch has been identified as the Chameleon, the BAU heads to Reno, Nevada, to follow up on his lead. Moreover, they have to deal with their mother of Lynch, Sharon Lawrence, who is also a gang member.
