“Criminal Minds” sudden change

Criminal Minds is a show about a group of agents in the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit and has been airing on CBS since 2005. Fans have fallen in love with the personality of the characters: Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), Jennifer Jareau (A.J. Cook), Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and David Rossi (Joe Mantegna).  CBS made the announcement earlier this summer that one of the most loved characters, Aaron “Hotch” Hotchner (Thomas Gibson), has been abruptly kicked off the show.

Fans are wondering how the directors will fill such a big role. Gibson’s character was a big part of the plot and story. Without a proper closure for the character, the whole show will be a catastrophe. If they do replace Gibson, they will have big shoes to fill. Gibson’s character took up most of most of season 2 and is also the leader of the team.

The 12 season is airing on September 28 on CBS, and also available on CBS’s website.
