Criminal Minds” showrunner Erica Messer isn’t giving up the profiling biz quite yet. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Messer has signed a two-year pod deal with ABC Studios, “Criminal Minds’” producers. The new pact will see Messer “create original dramas for ABC Studios and continue to serve as showrunner for the long-running procedural crime drama via her production banner, Erica Messer Productions.

“Erica has been an extraordinary showrunner for us and we’re very excited to see what’s in store with her new production company housed at ABC Studios,” ABC Studios prez Patrick Moran commented.

Messer has been running “Criminal Minds” for seven years and is the longest-serving writer on the CBS procedural. In 2015 she created the spinoff “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” with Erica Meredith (“Grey’s Anatomy”). The series aired for two seasons and ended earlier this year. “Charmed,” “Alias,” and “The O.C.” are among Messer’s previous credits.

'Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders' Canceled at CBS

14 May 2017 9:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

CBS continues to make decisions on its bubble shows. 

The network has canceled Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders after two low-rated seasons. 

Killing off Criminal Minds' second spinoff was not a quick decision. CBS renewed the 2016 midseason effort, lambasted by critics for its xenophobic premise of Americans encountering problems abroad, though only for another 13 episodes. Ratings got even more dangerously low, averaging just a 1.2 in the key demo. And while the 7.3 million-strong average would look good elsewhere, it was not much to write home about for a CBS drama. Showrunner Erica Messer still has the mothership as »

'Criminal Minds' Theory: Could Lindsey Vaughn Have Framed Reid?

21 April 2017 2:45 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

With only three episodes of Criminal Minds season 12 left to go, Reid's still in prison and still putting together what happened in that motel room in Mexico. He did make progress during his last conversation with Tara, remembering that Mr. Scratch drugged him, but then he said that she told him it was "time to go" and she walked out of there and wanted him to chase her. "It wasn't Scratch who framed me," he explained. "It was a woman."

Assuming we can trust that memory, who is that woman? It seems more likely than not it's going to be someone recognizable from a previous episode, and Gia Mantegna is reprising her role as Lindsey Vaughn in the final three episodes. When TVLine asked showrunner Erica Messer about her return, all she said was "that's a bit of a spoiler." Could Lindsey be the one who framed Reid?
