“Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” has been canceled after two seasons at CBS, Variety has learned.
The series, a spinoff of the hit CBS show “Criminal Minds,” was a drama about the specialized International Division of the FBI tasked with solving crimes and coming to the rescue of Americans who find themselves in danger while abroad.
It starred Gary Sinise, Alana De La Garza, Daniel Henney, Tyler James Williams, and Annie Funke. Erica Messer created the series and executive produced along with Mark Gordon, Nick Pepper, and Adam Glass. ABC Studios produced in association with CBS Television Studios and The Mark Gordon Company.
The series never achieved the same ratings success of its parent program. Season 2 is currently averaging a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 5 million viewers per episode, down significantly in both measures from Season 1. For comparison, Season 12 of “Criminal Minds” averaged a 1.4 rating and 7.5 million viewers.

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 »

It's been a while since we got a good cliffhanger from Criminal Minds. But that's exactly what happened amid Shemar Moore's return for the season 12 finale. The showrunner, Erica Messer, has spoken out about the finale, now that fans have nothing to do but wait months to see what will happen when the show returns for the 13th season.
This week, many a Criminal Minds fan got what they for months have wished for. Reid has been freed from the clink — though he is far from out of the woods.

Based off of Reid’s frantic claims about his mother’s new caretaker being Season 3 abduction victim Lindsey Vaughn, the team gets digging and confirms that Lindsey in fact is the woman who took Diana away, and both are now missing. Further investigation into Lindsey’s activities reveal that she has been following in her father’s footsteps by working as a hit woman for cartels, »
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?
