Fans were devastated when Criminal Minds ended last year, but CBS's new streaming platform Paramount+ is reportedly working on a reboot for the popular crime drama.

However, it's still in the very early stages—which means we need a Criminal Minds consolation prize, stat.

Luckily, Paramount+ has us covered there, too. Did you know that all 15 seasons of the series are available to watch on the streaming platform?

That's a whopping 324 episodes in total, so this binge-fest should keep us busy for, oh, at least two days. 😂

For those who aren’t caught up, Criminal Minds ran from 2005 to 2020, and was one of the most-watched cable shows during its time on air. Even in its final year, the hit show was one of the most-streamed shows in 2020.

So, what makes this procedural so special? Though it’s similar to other crime shows, what set Criminal Minds apart was that it followed a group of criminal profilers who worked for the FBI under the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) and tried to get inside the minds of serial killers and other criminals.

The cast was also great, with characters like the adorable Reid, the colorful Garcia, and the hunky Derek Morgan always stealing the show.

Anyway, we can't wait to have our own personal Criminal Minds mega-marathon this weekend. In case you don't already have a Paramount+ subscription, here's what you need to know: Plans start at $5.99 a month, which includes a one-week free trial—so you can always change your mind before the week is up.

If you're not interested in signing up for Paramount+, you can still stream Criminal Minds, but you won't have every single episode at your disposal. Netflix and Hulu also have various seasons available to watch.

Either way, you'll be able to get your Criminal Minds fix while you patiently (or not so patiently—who are we to say?) wait for the reboot. Yay!
