Trailers for Criminal Minds: Evolution Season 2 have teased that the show will be going in a very dark direction in its upcoming episodes.

This is not a franchise that’s ever shied away from the more grisly aspects of law enforcement.

And fans have responded well to the show’s darker storylines.

So the news that the writers are taking advantage of their freedom from the usual constraints of network television will likely be met with macabre glee from the Criminal Minds faithful who are always on board for more serialized terror.

Today’s renewal serves as a welcome indication that Paramount execs have the utmost confidence in this series and are all-in on the continued expansion of this long-running franchise.

Criminal Minds got started with the original series way back in 2005, and as the franchise creeps up on its 20th anniversary, it looks as though there’s no end in sight.

These series have had their ups and downs over the years, but overall Criminal Minds has earned its reputation as one of the most consistent of the ultra-long-running franchises, and news of the latest renewal is sure to receive a positive response from fans.
