Fans will need a Paramount+ subscription to watch Criminal Minds: Evolution. Luckily, there is a one-week free trial, so people can check out the first two episodes of the revival before they decide to subscribe. After the trial ends, Paramount+ offers an Essentials plan with limited ads for $4.99 per month and a Premium plan with no ads for $9.99 per month.

The first two episodes of Criminal Minds: Evolution will hit Paramount+ on Nov. 24. Then, one new episode will premiere every Thursday until the midseason finale on Dec. 15. Criminal Minds: Evolution returns to Paramount+ on Jan. 12, 2023, with a new episode every week until the season 1 finale on Feb. 9. Season 1 will have 10 episodes in total, and there’s no word yet on a season 2 renewal.
