CBS has officially cancelled Criminal Minds spinoff Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders after two short seasons. The news doesn’t come as much of a surprise given that marginal performer Beyond Borders wasn’t packaged with the Criminal Minds renewal and that Beyond Borders was the last CBS scripted show off the bench, meaning that they weren’t that high on it to begin with. This is the second short-lived spinoff derived from Criminal Minds following Suspect Behavior, which was cancelled in the spring of 2011.
From Erica Messer (Criminal Minds), Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders followed an elite team of FBI agents from the fictional International Response Team (IRT) tasked with solving cases that involve American citizens on international soil. The team was led by Jack Garrett (Gary Sinise), Senior Supervisory Special Agent, International Unit Chief, and 20-year FBI veteran.
In addition to Sinise, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders starred Alana de la Garza (Forever), Daniel Henney (Big Hero 6), Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris), and Annie Funke (The Intern).
The series finale of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders airs next Wednesday on CBS. The network will be releasing its 2017-18 schedule on Wednesday, May 17th; you can check out what KSiteTV thinks could happen here.
