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+.
