Criminal Minds is still looking for a replacement for Thomas Gibson—and it might come in the form of two people.
According to TVLine, producers are currently looking for two series regulars to fill the void left by Gibson's absence after he was fired from the show for kicking a writer. While one of the new characters will take the reins of the BAU as the replacement for team leader Hotchner, the other role is still TBD.
CBS had no comment on the potential news, but it's no secret that the creative changes are still being worked out behind-the-scenes as the show works to address Gibson's sudden absence.
"Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds," ABC Studios and CBS Studios said in a statement at the time of Gibson's ouster. "Creative details for how the character's exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date."
