'Criminal Minds' Is Ending After 15 Seasons And Fans Are In Mourning

The beloved CBS crime drama is coming to an end after nearly 15 years on the air.

The show let fans down gently on Twitter today, with the news that Criminal Minds will end after the airing of its 15th season this year.

"Hey #CriminalMinds fans -- we've got big news. First, mark your calendar for the Season 14 finale..." the show announced on Twitter.

"Next, get ready for a momentous ride: Season 15 will be our epic final season."

The show first premiered in 2005 -- the year that The Suite Life With Zack And Cody and American Dad first aired, and also the year that Tom Cruise jumped on a couch during his Oprah Winfrey Show interview. In other words, a long time ago!

Fans who have been with Criminal Minds since the very beginning have donned their funeral blacks and "slipped into mourning" with the news that they'll no longer see  Matthew Gray Gubler playing Dr Spencer Reid.

RIP, Criminal Minds!
