Which 'Criminal Minds' Star is Leaving the Show?

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

Shemar Moore is exiting Criminal Minds after 11 seasons.

The 45-year-old actor’s character Derek decided to leave the Behavioral Analysis Unit to focus on his family, which was revealed in the latest episode.

“It’s a weird experience,” Shemar told THR. “I just spent 11 years with a group of people and it’s a weird thing to walk away from — but I did it on my terms and in the right way.”

He said, “Derek Morgan isn’t walking off because Shemar is done with the show. Derek is walking away because there’s part of his life that’s missing and that he has an opportunity and he risks that every day but he needs to be a dad and experience that and be by his wife.”
