Criminal Minds had been in the news a lot lately for reasons that go beyond mere storytelling, as a Season 9 renewal was delayed due to contract negotiations.
And following our exclusive chat with Joe Mantegna, TV Fanatic jumped on the phone with showrunner Erica Messer to talk about how these delayed deals could impact next season, along with what we’ll see when The Replicator makes a return in tonight's two-hour episode...
TV Fanatic: Do contract negotiations with the cast get in the way of your thinking about next season?
Erica Messer: It definitely affects it... the good news in not doing a cliffhanger finale is that I’m not tied to any particular storyline. We can do what we did at the beginning of this season, which is just pick up and go. »

You know, I was sure things were going to go the other way when I first heard about the tricky negotiations going on between ABC Studios, CBS and the cast of Criminal Minds. With final offers being rejected and a season renewal dependent on certain cast members returning, I legitimately thought this could be the end for Criminal Minds. But things took a sudden reversal and everyone signed new deals and CBS announced the renewal of Criminal Minds for a ninth season. This just goes to show how little I understand this show and its cast members. I’m such a fool.
But, putting my foolishness aside, lets be happy the deals have been made and the show will be back for another season. Deadline reported the cast members whose contracts were up for renewal – those being Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook – all signed new two-year deals. »

Following some extended contract negotiations, CBS has renewed Criminal Minds for a ninth season.
The crime drama is still a very successful series for CBS and was considered a shoe-in for a renewal -- until contract negotiations with the cast got in the way. The network was supposedly willing to cancel the show if the right players didn't re-sign.
Vangsness and Cook supposedly stuck together in the negotiations and tried to get salary parity with Moore and Matthew Gubler, their male counterparts. They didn't get it but did end up receiving sizable pay raises.
What do you think? Are you glad to hear that Criminal Minds is coming back »

CBS has picked up "Criminal Minds" for 2013-14, and the current Bau team will remain intact next season.
A CBS rep confirms to Zap2it that the entire cast will return for Season 9. Several cast members were at the end of their contracts this season, and A.J. Cook and Kirsten Vangsness had reportedly threatened to leave the show if their salaries weren't brought up to parity with those of their male co-stars.
Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna and Shemar Moore also have new deals in place (Matthew Gray Gubler and Jeanne Tripplehorn were already under contract). According to Deadline, Cook and Vangsness each got substantial raises that brings their pay much closer to what Moore and Gubler make.
"Criminal Minds" was one of only a handful of CBS shows not renewed back in March, in large part due to the contract negotiations. With deals now done, its place in CBS' lineup for next season is secure. »
In the midst of all this news about NBC cancellations, renewals and pilot pickups, CBS had a little announcement of its own. The procedural drama Criminal Minds has been picked up for a ninth season, the network announced today via its Twitter. "#CBS welcomes back #CriminalMinds for its 9th season. Series renewed for 2013/14." The tweet was almost lost in a sea of info about Parks and Rec being renewed, Vampire Diaries boss Julie Plec getting another series ordered on CW, and other good news we have been celebrating today. Deadline is reporting that castmembers Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook have all signed new two-year deals. Keep »

"Criminal Minds" has been renewed for a ninth season on CBS.
The drama follows the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (Bau), focusing on the people who commit the most horrific crimes. Starring Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler and, most recently, Jeanne Tripplehorn, has gone through several high-profile cast shake-ups over the last eight seasons, but the ratings have remained high.
"Criminal Minds" made headlines when negotiations with the cast for Season 9 went down to the wire. A representative for CBS confirmed the entire cast including A.J. Cook and Kirsten Vangsness will return for Season 9.
The ratings for Season 8 dipped a bit, which is to be expected that far along in a series, but the show still averages over 12.5 million viewers.

Exclusive: After a week of intense negotiations, a couple of deadlines and best and final offers, Criminal Minds leads Thomas Gibson and Joe Mantegna and co-stars Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook have all signed new two-year deals to continue on the veteran CBS crime drama. With the five on board and Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer signing a new deal last week, I’ve learned that CBS has proceeded with a ninth-season renewal for the show. Going into the renegotiations, Vangsness and Cook, who stuck together, sought salary parity with their male counterparts Moore and Matthew Gubler. I hear the two didn’t quite get there but received sizable pay increases. Related: Gibson & Mantegna Near ‘Criminal Minds’ Deals; Vangsness & Cook May Not Come Back »

Thing are starting to heat up in the cast negotiations for Criminal Minds. If Season 9 is going to happen, deals need to be made and producers ABC Studios and CBS are no longer messing around. While it was once thought signing a new two-year deal with showrunner Erica Messer would help bring the cast around to signing new deals, the issue of money has quickly made Messer’s deal seem like an empty gesture. Everybody wants what they feel they’re owed – some rightfully so – but few seem to be on the same page. To make things more complicated, a deadline was put on negotiations: deals need to be finalized by the end of Tuesday.
Deadline reported final offers had been sent to the cast whose contracts were up for renewal – Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook. If the cast don’t accept the offers »

It’s that time in of the year for television contract renewals and things seem to be getting pretty messy over at the Criminal Minds camp. Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook’s contracts all finish after season eight of the long running CBS crime series, but it looks like Vangsness and Cook are willing to walk due to the fact that they are getting paid a considerably less amount then their male counterparts. Ouch.
It’s been no secret that Criminal Minds has been a little less friendly when it comes to pleasing the female audience and cast. Cook has already been let go by the show once, but returned when there was a fan outcry. The treatment of women on the show was the reason why Mandy Patinkin, who now stars in Homeland, left. He called the show “his biggest public mistake” saying: »

It's also on the verge of losing two key cast members.
An insider says the actresses have been negotiating as a tandem and are taking a stand against what they believe to be unfair treatment of female cast members on the show, as most make less than half the salaries of their male counterparts.

"Criminal Minds" Season 9 could see another major cast shakeup.
Much of the cast of "Criminal Minds" has been in negotiations with CBS and producer ABC Studios for new Season 9 contracts -- which is why the show wasn't renewed when CBS announced early renewals of its other shows -- but now reports of final deals have surfaced with key members rejecting them. Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook are all in negotiations.
TVLine reports Gibson and Mantegna are close to signing the new deal with Moore still in talks. However, Vangsness and Cook are reported to have outright rejected the offers and are seeking pay that matches their male co-stars. The two are said to be negotiating together. Matthew Gray Gubler and Jeanne Tripplehorn's contracts are not up for renewal.
Deadline reports the deals need to be signed by end of day Tuesday, May 7 for »

There has been some drama lately surrounding "Criminal Minds," one of only a few shows at CBS not to have been either renewed or canceled for the upcoming television season.
Last week, showrunner and Ep Erica Messer inked a new deal with CBS that leaves her at the helm of the ship for a potential Season 9 and now Deadline reports that all the stars have received final offers from the network.
Furthermore, Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook have reportedly turned down their final offers from the network -- they are unhappy with the female stars being paid so much less than the male ones and are willing to walk if there isn't something done to correct that.
There was a dust-up regarding the female cast members back »
