CBS Renews Criminal Minds for Season 9

at . Comments

Criminal Minds has been renewed for Season 9.

And the entire cast is on board.

Following talk that Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook were taking a strong stance in negotiations - as a form of protest against how actresses have been compensated on the series - Deadline now reports that Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Vangsness and Cook have all signed new two-year deals.

The contracts of Matthew Gray Gubler and Jeanne Tripplehorn were not up for renewal; both will return.

Cook and Vangsness will still be paid less than their male co-stars, but the duo did receive sizable raises.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.

Lewis

Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.
