When Will Season 12 Be Added To Netflix?
For the most part, CBS and Netflix are known to operate on a steady schedule when it comes to their contract and renewing content. For starters, CBS has been consistent about airing a new season of Criminal Minds during the month of September. Netflix has stuck to a reliable schedule with releasing previous seasons a few months before the new season aired in July.
For this reason – if Netflix keeps to the schedule and pattern they’ve used in the past – subscribers can expect Season 12 of Criminal Minds to be added to the library in July 2017.
Wait, What About That CBS Rumor…
Now, there has been a long-standing rumor that CBS is working on making their shows – such as Criminal Minds – exclusively available on their own streaming platform. This, however, has yet to be a fruit-bearing rumor. For now, the chances of this putting a damper on Netflix releasing Criminal Minds Season 12 in five months is pretty slim.
What’s On Netflix notes there is a slight possibility the release date of Criminal Minds Season 12 could be a week after the finale per the deal the CW – a subsidiary of CBS – recently made with Netflix.

This Is Just A Prediction – Hasn’t Been Confirmed
It is important to keep in mind this is nothing more than a prediction based on the pattern and schedule Netflix and CBS has kept to in the past. While they are pretty consistent, things could change. For now, however, fans should expect Criminal Minds Season 12 to pop up in the June preview of what is to be released in July of this year.
A Little Background on Criminal Minds
Criminal Minds is currently the longest running series to air on CBS. With every new season, the writers are praised for their engaging story lines and smart writing. While there is no denying the fact that there are a number of crime drama series on Netflix, Criminal Minds isn’t exactly like other shows available in the library. Criminal Minds tends to focus on the psychology behind the crime committed in each episode – or episode of the crime happens to arch over into more than one episode.
CBS aired the first episodes of Criminal Minds back in 2005. With more than 250 episodes, there are plenty of episodes for Netflix subscribers to binge through.
