If you’re a Netflix subscriber, then you know the streaming service isn’t just home to original series like GLOW and Queer Eye. It’s also home to a whole lotta legacy content (think Friends and The Office) as well as new seasons of popular network shows. That includes CBS’ long-running police procedural Criminal Minds. In case you didn’t know, every single season of the show is ready for you to binge–except one!
Right now, the first 12 seasons (I wasn’t kidding when I said “long-running”) are available to stream on Netflix, meaning you can watch any of the first 277 episodes of the show right now by merely logging in. That means you can watch every era of this show about FBI profilers, including stints starring Mandy Patinkin and Thomas Gibson all the way up through the current era, starring Aisha Tyler and Paget Brewster. One thing’s never in question, though: Matthew Gray Gubler will always be there. But wait–only the first 12 seasons? What about Season 13?
Is Criminal Minds Season 13 available to stream on Netflix?
The answer is, unfortunately, no–at least not yet. Season 13 wrapped up its run on CBS in April of this year, meaning it should hit Netflix sometime soon. Network shows like Criminal Minds are rarely (I think I could safely say “never”) added to Netflix on a weekly basis. Whole seasons get added to the service in one big chunk after the show finishes its network run. In the past, Criminal Minds seasons have been added to Netflix in June or July, usually as a total surprise. So you’re not gonna see Criminal Minds listed in the New on Netflix for July 2018 post, but that doesn’t mean it’s not on the way!
So when will Criminal Minds Season 13 arrive on Netflix?
Since I am a Netflix profiler, my informed hunch is that it’ll be added any day now. After all, previous seasons of the show were added in June or July after the season finale. Decider reached out to Netflix for information on Season 13’s release date, but there was none to give. But again, just because it hasn’t been announced yet and isn’t on the schedule doesn’t mean much. It could once again drop by surprise any day now, so keep your eyes peeled, profilers!
