Thomas Gibson Leaving Criminal Minds?

The season finale of Criminal Minds left viewers wondering whether one of its leading characters will return on the show in its next season. In the last few months the rumor mills were working overtime with reports of the mess happening on the sets of the popular TV show with a number of writers leaving the show without giving any plausible explanation. It was also reported that one of the leading characters on the show might be leaving it for good, and after the finale episode, viewers seem rather convinced that Thomas Gibson is the one getting the axe.

However, Gibson wrote a letter to his fans last month that read: “Hi CM Fans, Thomas here. I just wanted to say that in response to all the conversation on the blog, that I love playing A. Hotchner on Criminal Minds; that we have the best crew, cast, writers, and production staff in the world. I have loved working on the show for four seasons and look forward to many more. I realize that none of this could happen without the support of our fantastic fans. We count ourselves very lucky to have so dedicated and enthusiastic an audience as you. Thanks for watching and we look forward to providing you with great shows for a long time to come. - Thomas Gibson.”

In spite of the reassurance from Gibson, fans are concerned that his term with the show might be up because the season finale showed his chances of survival were unlikely. In addition there are reports that a number of contracts on the show, including those of writers and a few leading actors are due to be renewed but may not be given the new lease. CBS said that the show would be back for its fifth season but said nothing about its cast or crew.
