'Criminal Minds' exec teases Dr Reid plot
Criminal Minds producer Erica Messer has confirmed that the show will explain Dr Reid's headaches.
The character (played by Mathew Gray Gubler) has suffered from unexplained migraines throughout the show's sixth season, but Messer told Entertainment Weekly that Reid's illness will be explored properly in a potential seventh season.
"Honestly, that storyline, that whole idea behind that, started before we lost A.J. [Cook] and Paget [Brewster]," she explained. "There was [also] a chance that we were fearing to lose Matthew just because of contract negotiations."
She continued: "That storyline kind of got implanted and then never truly paid off in this season, but we want to sort of conclude that next season. That's the plan."
Criminal Minds star Thomas Gibson previously insisted that the show's future is secure, claiming that many viewers are still "connected" to the crime drama.

'Criminal Minds' exec teases cliffhanger
Criminal Minds producer Erica Messer has confirmed that the current season will end on a cliffhanger.
The showrunner told TV Guide that the sixth season finale will see the BAU team come under threat from a financial crisis.
"It's about our team and the financial cost of crime fighting," she explained. "The goal [with this episode] was to show how much the world needs our heroes and how important it is that we keep the team together.
"Bad guys seem to have endless funds but, as in real life, there are budget cuts in the government, and the team is in jeopardy of being split up."
It was recently confirmed that A.J. Cook will reprise her role as Jennifer 'JJ' Jareau in the season finale, having previously been axed from the crime drama
Criminal Minds star Thomas Gibson recently insisted that the show's future is secure.
"Each year seems to have contained the challenges of transition, and no greater transition has been called upon than this year," he suggested. "The show is continuing just like the team is continuing, but hopefully we're ready for whatever the next transition is."
Criminal Minds continues on Wednesdays at 9/8c on CBS. The sixth season finale will air in May.
