Criminal Minds Season 3 aired on CBS, and ran from September 26, 2007 until May 21, 2008. The biggest event of Season 3 is Agent Jason Gideons retirement from the BAU in Episode 2. His absence becomes a painful gap in the teams identity.

In Episode 6, the team receives a new member, Agent David Rossi, a well-known profiler who comes out of retirement to take over Gideons position. Of course, everyone on the teamRossi includedmust work through the challenges of adjusting to the changes in this tight-knit team.

Criminal Minds follows an elite team of FBI criminal investigators, known as the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), as its members travel the country working to solve grisly murder mysteries and arrest the serial killers responsible for them.

Given this context, Criminal Minds used its first season to set itself apart from the crowd.
