Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior

Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior Information

Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior was a short-lived American police procedural drama that aired on CBS. The show debuted in 2011 as a spin-off from the successful Criminal Minds, which premiered in 2005. This edition's profiling team also worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) in Quantico, Virginia. In an April 2010 episode of Criminal Minds ("The Fight"), the original team met the new team and worked with them to find a San Francisco serial killer as the series' backdoor pilot.

Just like the parent series, CBS owned the underlying North American rights, while ABC owned the international rights. The series premiered on February 16, 2011, in the Wednesdays at 10 pm time slot following out of the original Criminal Minds.

CBS cancelled the series on May 17, 2011. The series ends with a cliffhanger. On September 6, 2011 CBS DVD released the complete series as a 4 disc-set. It is packaged as "The DVD Edition". There are numerous special features and two episode commentaries with the cast and crew. The set includes the backdoor pilot from season five of the original show, as well.


In early 2009, Michael Ausiello from Entertainment Weekly said that he and studios were discussing the possibility of a spin-off of the procedural crime drama Criminal Minds. Studio Producer Ed Bernero confirmed it by disclosing that "it's safe to say there will be something soon." The show would have a completely new cast, with the exception of Kirsten Vangsness, who would reprise her role as Penelope Garcia. In late 2010, the director had been chosen, and the casting completed. It was announced that Forest Whitaker would star. Whitaker's character and his team were introduced in Criminal Minds Season 5. Richard Schiff would have a recurring role as FBI Director Jack Fickler.

Whitaker and his team set the stage for the spin-off in the 18th episode of the fifth season of Criminal Minds, "The Fight" (April 7, 2010). This "back-door pilot" approach was also used for other CBS shows that got introduced in an original series, such as CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, NCIS, and NCIS: Los Angeles.
