"The actor was fired by “Criminal Minds” producers ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios following an internal investigation of an on-set fight in which Gibson allegedly kicked writer-producer Virgil Williams during production of an episode that Gibson was directing."

I'm not okay with physical violence and given this was the second time, I'm glad that ABC and CBS made this decision. Still, I'll miss Hotch on the show.

I'm linking two spoiler heavy articles in this post. One with show runner Erica Messer and one with Erica and Kristen Vangsness. Kristen cowrote this ep. Just a little BTS stuff about the hows and whys of the episode.

Oh, we knew they were going to be renewed (okay, really hoped that CBS and ABC wouldn't be stupid to cancel them since CM is the #1 show on Wednesday per EW) but we just didn't know if everyone was going to return...

Mantegna, Gibson, Moore, Vangsness and Cook all signed 2 year deals. I wonder if Gibson's included the chance to direct more episodes.

Didn't MGG re-up last year for two years? Or is he the only one still without a contract?

Here's the announcement from EW: http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/05/09/criminal-minds-renewed-for-ninth-season/

From EW.com:

“It’s a much-maligned show,” [Nina] Tassler said of Minds.

“I happen to enjoy the show. It’s not for everybody. It’s an adult show.
It’s a suspense thriller. And within that it’s also a character crime
procedural. It’s given an appropriate rating. I don’t let my
[14-year-old] kid watch it. I do. It’s a genre show … I think we’re
making a huge mistake — and I’d say it to Bob to his face — to let any
of the [violence] conversation devolve into ‘my show vs. your show.’
This is a much bigger issue.”

Interesting info, I thought.  Cast and crew have had their holidays canceled because they are already behind schedule.

"The show has taken on some new people, and they are behind on production, so all of their plans for taking holidays have been cancelled, and they are staying on the set."


I believe it's the same event Gubler went to last year, but am not sure.

From EW.com ...

The obligatory CM Bashing post in EW's "Getting Tired or Still Inspired" http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20498858,00.html#20970579. What is most surprising is that Ken Tucker didn't write it. "DF" did.

Yet Sandra Gonzalez came to the show's defense http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20498858,00.html#20970576.

Another one bites the dust: CBS has canceled Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior after one season.

The news was better for fellow Eye bubble procedural CSI: NY, which was picked up for an eighth season.

Just to clear this up, since I was slightly confused by the last news article, Paget's pilot has officially NOT been picked up by NBC. They released their fall TV schedule and My Life As An Experiment is not on there. That doesn't necessarily mean that some other network couldn't pick it up (Sarah Michelle Gellar's show The Ringer was originally pitched to CBS, but got picked up by the CW) but I have this gut feeling that it's dead in the water.

So here's hoping that means she's coming back to CM. Supposedly, they're open to having her back and she's open to coming back as well. I hope they can work out a deal. *crosses fingers*

I've read some interesting news about Season 7 of Criminal minds,SPOILERS  )
[identity profile] jl-decker.livejournal.com
The casting news in Criminal Minds Land has been crazy since last summer. First we learned AJ Cook would not be coming back to the show except for the first two episodes. Then we were told Paget Brewster would have a reduced role, and it would be her last season. Then Rachel Nichols was reportedly hired on for a three episode arc, but added later as a full time cast member. Then we heard that CBS was offering Paget her full contract back, but she was going to keep her options open… It’s getting dizzying!

I thought maybe that was the end of it. There couldn’t possibly be more casting drama within the course of a year, right? Wrong. Apparently not only did CBS see the error of their ways in letting Brewster go, they have now realized that letting Cook go was a bad idea too. You would think the fan uproar last summer would have cued them in to this, but apparently they had to be stubborn.

Potential great news for Criminal Minds fans: A.J. Cook is in talks to return to the CBS crime drama next season as a full-time series regular. Meanwhile, executive producer Ed Bernero — who has run the series since the start — is leaving, with another Criminal Minds veteran, executive producer Erica Messer, taking over as sole showrunner.

Speaking of Brewster, she is filming a comedy pilot for NBC, My Life As an Experiment, and will continue on the project if it goes to series. But if it doesn’t, I hear CBS has an option on her for Criminal Minds and, if it exercises it as many expect, the network would bring the cast of the show back to the way it was at the end of last season.

The developments, especially Cook’s potential return to Criminal Minds, do not bode well for newly-minted regular Rachel Nichols, who was brought in to fill the void left by Cook’s departure.

While things look bright for the female portion of the Criminal Minds cast, things are still murky on the male side, with stars Thomas Gibson and Shemar Moore still not signed for next season. Talks are underway with the two actors whose deals are up at the end of this season.

As for Bernero, he informed the cast and crew of his departure last night. There had been speculation that he would leave the series at the end of the season, especially after his script Partners got picked up to pilot at ABC in January.

Paget Brewster has firmed up her post-Criminal Minds career plans: The fan fave has signed to play the female lead in NBC’s comedy pilot My Life as an Experiment.

Produced by Jack Black, Experiment chronicles the adventures of a gonzo journalist and how his unique profession impacts his home life. Brewster will play the wife of the lead character.

The potential series is based on the best-selling book by journalist/author A.J. Jacobs, Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life As An Experiment.

Yay for Paget!

Criminal Minds executive producer/ showrunner Simon Mirren is leaving the veteran crime drama. Mirren, who joined the series right after the pilot as a supervising producer, was promoted to executive producer at the beginning of Season 5.

There is talk that Bernero may also leave Criminal Minds at the end of the season. He has a drama pilot, Partners, in contention at ABC but even if his pilot goes to series, he is expected to still have some involvement with the Criminal Minds franchise.

Staying on is Messer, considered a rising star on Criminal Minds.

Uh, this isn't good, is it?
