Criminal Minds: Evolution is a revival of Criminal Minds starring Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Kirsten Vangness, Aisha Tyler, Zach Gilford, A.J. Cook, Ryan-James Hatanaka and Adam Rodriguez.

The police procedural crime drama follows the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) as they investigate a network of serial killers.

In Season 2, the BAU investigates the deadly mystery of Gold Star.

"As the conspiracy unfolds, the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) is met with an unexpected complication when serial killer Elias Voit (Gilford) negotiates a deal that transfers him to federal custody in the BAU's own backyard. The team faces its biggest threat yet and cannot emerge unscathed from the mind-bending consequences," an official synopsis reads.
