UnSub Elias Jasper Voit is a dark, looming presence in the official poster for Criminal Minds: Evolution, Paramount+’s upcoming revival of the long-running crime drama.
You can get an exclusive first look at that key art poster (click to zoom!), as well as several new episodic and behind-the-scene photos, down below.
Paramount+’s Criminal Minds: Evolution will kick off the first half of its season on Thanksgiving Day — Thursday, Nov. 24 — when it will release the first two episodes. New episodes will release weekly every Thursday through Dec. 15, at which time the series will take a holiday break. The 10-episode season will then resume Thursday, Jan. 12, leading to a Feb. 9 finale.
Criminal Minds‘ quasi-Season 16 finds the BAU’s elite profilers going up against “their greatest threat yet,” the aforementioned Elias Voit, an UnSub who spent the pandemic cultivating a network of other serial killers. Now, with the world opening back up, Voit’s network goes operational, and the BAU team must hunt them down… one murder at a time.
The BAU team in question is comprised of veteran cast members Paget Brewster (as Prentiss), Joe Mantegna (Rossi), A.J. Cook (JJ), Kirsten Vangsness (Garcia), Aisha Tyler (Tara) and Adam Rodriguez (Luke). Friday Night Lights vet Zach Gilford, meanwhile, plays Elias Voit, an operations analyst for a global cyber-security firm who has a dark side and obsession with death.
As previously reported, neither OG cast member Matthew Gray Gubler nor Season 10 addition Daniel Henney will be reprising their roles, as Spencer and Matt respectively, though there may be a bit of a mystery surrounding their characters’ absences.
