The long goodbye for America’s favorite FBI profilers is going to begin: Criminal Minds will kick off its 15th and final season on Jan. 8 with a special two-hour episode.

But the long-running procedural won’t be around for long. The drama featuring Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J. Cook, Aisha Tyler, Kirsten Vangsness, Adam Rodriguez and Daniel Henney will wrap up its brief run with a two-hour series finale on Feb. 19.

Two additional show from CBS’ seat will return in 2020: Undercover Boss and MacGyver. (No word yet on the return dates for Man with a Plan and The wonderful Race, in addition to the premiere of Broke).  They’ll be joined on the schedule by two new dramas featuring Edie Falco and Julian McMahon. Tommy features Falco in the title part of a former high-ranking NYPD officer who becomes the first female Chief of Police for L.A. She’ll fill the Thursday time slot made by Bad , which may have wrapped its 13-episode first year.

McMahon headlines FBI: Most Wanted, which follows the fugitive task force that searches down the worst of the worst. It’ll air on Tuesdays while NCIS: New Orleans will move to Sundays.
