‘The Big Bang Theory' Season 10 & 'Criminal Minds' Season 12 Not Renewed Until Now; What Are CBS' Plans?

In the past couple of weeks, CBS shows have been dominating the primetime television. Two of them are "The Big Bang Theory" season 10 and "Criminal Minds" season 12. Despite the popularity of these shows in terms of viewership, CBS has not approved the renewal of these primetime shows yet for the next seasons. What are CBS' plans for now?

"The Big Bang Theory" season 11 and "Criminal Minds" season 13 are still in danger of cancelation following the decision of CBS not to renew them as of now. According to a report from TV Series Finale, both shows are currently "not canceled or renewed" for their respective seasons. Are fans seeing the series finale of the "The Big Bang Theory" and "Criminal Minds"?

"The Big Bang Theory" Season 11

Despite the hubbub created by "The Big Bang Theory" in the recent weeks owing to the announcement of a spin-off for Sheldon's character, producers and network executives were tight-lipped about the show's renewal. There has been string of rumors already since last October that CBS was reconsidering the million dollar salary demands of the main actors. The last statement the network dropped regarding the show's renewal for season 11 was that executives are making sure the salary sits well with their budget. This news even led to rumors that Kaley Kuoco will no longer reprise her role as Penny for the next season.

"Criminal Minds" Season 13

On the other hand, "Criminal Minds" season 13 was reported on the brink of cancelation due to bad ratings as the primary reason. Currently on its season 12, the show has seen the worst audience share after Thomas Gibson was axed from the show. It can be recalled that Gibson was dismissed from "Criminal Minds" season 12 over allegations of physical altercation with writer/producer Virgil Williams.

What are CBS' plans now? The network has yet to shed light on any of the claims surrounding "The Big Bang Theory" and "Criminal Minds."
