In a panel of the series promoted by Paramount +, Erica Messer, showrunner of the series, revealed that the idea of ​​​​the reboot came after she spent the pandemic watching true crime productions.

“I started to ask myself: what are serial killers doing now? Are they using this time to study the classics?”, he commented. From there, she started working on a series that would show what the routine of serial killers would be like who used the pandemic to communicate with each other.

Unlike the original series, the reboot was primarily produced for streaming, bringing new challenges to the team. For example, the violence portrayed will be much less, although the language, full of profanity, will remain the same.

“Some people might find that inappropriate, but I think it’s more than natural for an environment like this, and the pressure the characters are under all the time,” added Masser.

Premiering on November 24th, Criminal Minds: Evolution will have its episodes released weekly, always on Thursdays. The cast includes Joe Mantegna, Aisha Tyler, Kirsten Vangsness, AJ Cook and Adam Rodriguez.
