CBS Midseason Schedule: Criminal Minds’ Final Season, NCIS: New Orleans on the Move, and More!

at .  Updated at .

The final season of Criminal Minds has a premiere date. 

The series will return for its 15th season Wednesday, January 8 at 9/8c.

CBS will give the show a two-hour premiere, and there will be another double episode down the line because the show is set to wrap Wednesday, February 19. 

Seeking Unsub - Criminal Minds Season 14 Episode 11

It's likely to be a two-hour finale, but there's no telling what the Eye network plans to do. 

SEAL Team is going on hiatus to accomodate Criminal Minds, and will return to the schedule February 26. 

On the freshman front, FBI: Most Wanted will launch Tuesday, January 7 at 10/9c out of the original series. 

Surprise Visitor - NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 23

That also means that NCIS: New Orleans is on the move.

The veteran NCIS spinoff will join NCIS: Los Angeles on Sundays once Madam Secretary wraps. 

It will return to the air Sunday, February 16, meaning that there will be an extended hiatus from the holiday break to the new episodes. 

MacGyver will finally return from its extended hiatus on Friday, February 7 at 8/7c.

That means Hawaii Five-0 is moving forward an hour to 9/8c. 

Finding a Dirty Cop - Magnum P.I.

Magnum P.I. will then go on hiatus until MacGyver has wrapped its 22 episode run.

CBS recently ordered a back nine for Magnum, so don't worry. It's sticking around for the longer haul. 

Finally, new Edie Falco drama, Tommy, will replace EVIL on Thursdays when it wraps its freshman run. 

Have a look at the list of premieres coming to CBS in 2019.
