Paramount Plus didn’t waste any time in bringing a brand-new jet for the new season of Criminal Minds. Based on the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, the show wrapped up its fifteenth season with the destruction of the ionic jet plane of the unit.
Following a couple of hiccups after season 15, our beloved Criminal Minds is back with a 10-episode season, which will premiere this Thanksgiving.
Titled Criminal Minds: Evolution, the project is a continuation of the adventures of the BAU.
The creators must instill a sense of continuity in the viewer’s mind. That’s why bringing back a new jet becomes paramount. It will help the viewers connect with the new season in a better way.
In a behind-the-scenes video, star Joe Mantegna teased the introduction of a brand-new jet for the new season. It was captioned ‘You know what this is” with an emoji of a plane in the video.
The clip doesn’t really show the finished interiors of the plane, but fans can definitely understand what he means.
A trailer released by Paramount Plus revealed that the BAU will only be dealing with one case this time. But it will be the darkest and the most twisted one yet.
In the show’s previous seasons, they had to deal with several cases. The plane helped them travel from one place to another.
But this time, the situation is different. They will only be dealing with a network of UnSubs. So, how much of a use will a jet be is unclear. Nevertheless, they will need it to travel from one state to another.
Chronologically, a considerable amount of time has passed between season 15’s finale and the revival. Many of the old profilers must’ve left by now, and new faces must have arrived. It will be fun to watch the new group dynamic and how the characters evolve.
The creators really have to show their creativity to make it all glide as smoothly as the Jet which will take off with the premiere of the new season of Criminal minds.
