'Criminal Minds' Season 11 Spoilers: Next Chapter To Be 'Exciting, Spooky' Matthew Gray Gubler Dishes [VIDEO]
A recent spoiler report was assisted by Matthew Gray Gubler dishing about what fans can expect from season 11 of Criminal Minds.
The actor, who plays Dr. Reid, revealed to TVLine that the next chapter is going to be quite the doozy.
"It's a crazy arc," Gubler said. "It's exciting, spooky, team members might be in peril.... Fun stuff as always!"
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Criminal Minds executive producer, Erica Messer, revealed that Dr. Reid is going to have a very dramatic moment in the season 11 premiere.
Reid is going to be responsible for a crucial takedown in the episode, and it is going to be a rather disturbing scene. "He gets to do a take down Reid style, which is just using his brain with a physical thing that's really disturbing - you have to turn away," Messer said. "It's not a standoff with a gun, it's a Reid version of a takedown."
It doesn't come as much of surprise that the show is going to open with a bib moment for Reid, as in the recent interviews it has been suggested that the season will focus on Gubler's character more.
Gubler previously revealed his hopes for his character arc in season 11 and he wished that Dr. Reid's personal life got some more traction on the CBS procedural, and it seems like the producers and showrunners have been listening.
For one, Dr. Reid will be getting a new forensic team partner, who is also being speculated as his possible love interest on the show.
Season 11 of Criminal Minds will premiere on Sept. 23 on CBS.
