The original show focuses on a group of officers working in the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) of the FBI. The officers work as offender profilers, who work together to analyze various crime scenes, suspecting possible offenders who may be linked to multiple crime scenes.
The series showcased some of the many traits in real life, especially in the federal offices. Let’s now look at the streaming guide for Criminal Minds: Evolution.
What is the show Criminal Minds: Evolution about?
Criminal Minds: Evolution follows the staff of BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) as they must uncover a network of serial killers that were built during the global coronavirus pandemic. It hasn’t even been three complete years since the wind-up of the original show, yet the producers are ready to rock the world once again with their brilliant screenplay and extravagant storyline.
The official trailer released by the team offers a sneak peek into the lives of the officers in the show as they work their way through numerous cases to uncover a continuous series of murders, thus adding the thrill factor to the already popular show. Viewers also get to see action sequences from Criminal Minds: Evolution from the trailer, which adds to the hype of the already anticipated show.
Paramount+ offered the official synopsis of the show. It goes as:
