Criminal Minds is an American police procedural crime drama television series created and produced by Jeff Davis. It originally aired on September 13, 2005, on the broadcast network CBS.
According to reports, Mark Harmon decided to leave the show after 18 years and reportedly did not want to return for season 19. The four episodes he did were a gift. As it is, “The Americans” star Anna Faris surprised fans when she announced that she was leaving the sitcom after seven seasons, with her character’s departure confirmed in July of 2017.
CBS sitcom Mom was suddenly cancelled back in February– however, a network chief has finally discussed why. The show first aired in 2013, but faced many challenges and as it is now gone despite its success.
It was hard to accept that the show would end without its lead character, but it was also a relief. The show has been on for 18 years and the writers were already in a creative rut, running out of ways to keep the show fresh. It was time for them to say goodbye, and Harmon’s departure gave them that ending they deserved.
