The upcoming season of Criminal Minds will sadly be its last, to the dismay of fans. The members of the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit will return for one final season, and are sure to go out with a bang. All of the last season’s current cast members will be back. David Rossi (Joe Mantegna), Gubler as Spencer Reid, Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster), Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau (A.J. Cook), and the lovable Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) will all be back for one final season.

The cast shot photos for the July/August issue of CBS’ Watch! Magazine. The images also include Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler), Luke Alvez (Adam Rodriguez), and Matt Simmons (Daniel Henney), so we can expect to see them as well.
