Criminal Minds will end promptly after its designated time slot.

Season 15 Episode 1: The season 15 premiere is titled “Under the Skin,” and the synopsis reads, “The BAU team investigates an unsub with striking similarities to Rossi’s latest obsession, ‘The Chameleon.'”

Season 15 Episode 2: The second episode is titled “Awakenings,” and the synopsis for it reads, “The team searches for Everett Lynch and his daughter; Spencer has a meaningful visit with his mother.”

What to Expect: Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer told CarterMatt that he did everything she had ever wanted to do within the show’s format, and that fans should be prepared for the unexpected. “We talked about what our wish-list was and it was all character-driven,” she said, citing an episode called “Saturday” as a prime example.

“What does the team do on a day off? Do they ever get a day off? The intention of that episode was that it was truly a day off — you might have some of them teamed up so it wasn’t eight separate stories, but we really wanted to explore that,” she teased. “Eventually, it does become a little bit more like a Criminal Minds episode.”

Messer also told fans that the premiere will boast some of the show’s most emotional moments to date. “Within these two hours, be on the lookout for a particular meaningful conversation between Spencer and his mother Diana, who is experiencing a rare period of lucidity,” she revealed. “She’s able to offer up a greater sense of perspective on his life, and it’s some of Matthew Gray Gubler’s finest work on the show.”
