The popular CBS crime series, CRIMINAL MINDS, will be back for season nine. This also means some likely salary hikes for the cast members as well. The ongoing actor salary negotiations forced CBS to backburner whether or not the series would return. But, now the top actors will also receive some new two year contract deals, meaning that there should be a season ten for the popular show as well as a season nine.
CBS will review their Fall lineup on Wednesday. It appears that both CSI:NY and VEGAS are being cancelled. Further, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT is likely to be cancelled as well. One popular returning show, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER is sadly returning for it’s final season. Look for the series to eventually explain how the “mother” is met as it’s final storyline. This show was written to tell a story that would eventually end.
