Fans are little bit disappointed to know that only 22 episodes instead of 24 episodes of “Criminal Minds season 11” will be aired. Is this a premonition to end the long running series for the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU)?

It is reportedly said that “Criminal Minds” is all set to reappear with its 11th season in September 2015. The American CBS police-procedural drama will encounter a lot of alterations once the season 11 comes back this year. There will be addition of characters and various cast changes and exits as well, which are expected to give “Criminal Mind” season 11 a superb response.

According to International Business Times, the rumor is in the air that the upcoming season will consist of 22 episodes, which, if it happens, will be the smallest number of episodes the series has featured in the last seven years. “Criminal Minds” debuted in 2005, and now it has become a very popular show on CBS.

On the other hand, MNR Daily has erected a strong reason saying that lessening the number of episodes might be a strategy to “keep the fans’ focus away from the stars A J Cook and Jennifer Love Hewitt.” It is reportedly said that Cook and Hewitt are on maternity leaves and will not be able to participate the Behavioral Analysis Unit for the 11th season.

Although it is still unclear when they will rejoin the series, Producer Erica Messer remarked that the doors remained open for the two actress.

“One of the great things about our show is you can leave those doors open. We rarely kill anyone. That opportunity for paths to cross again is definitely open,” Messer said in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Another rumor is taking its toll that that two of the most loved actresses Emily Prentiss and Jordan Todd might make a homecoming.

“Criminal Minds” season 11 will be aired on CBS on Sept. 30, 2015.
