After an 11-year run, th the schedule that we have,” Moore told

“To use a sports analogy, I left it all on the field,” Moore said. “There is nothing, especially after this Wednesday night, I can do to top it.”

Below, Moore bids farewell to the show’s fans:

Per The Hollywood Reporter:

Moore wrapped up his time on Criminal Minds more than a month ago and has spent the weeks since rewatching some of the drama’s recent Derek-heavy episodes and appreciating the final scenes he filmed with longtime co-stars Thomas Gibson (Aaron), Joe Mantegna (David) and Kirsten Vangsness (Penelope), the latter of whom co-wrote Wednesday’s episode alongside showrunner Erica Messer.

“When we started, there were 102 cop shows, … and I questioned why they needed 103, but what we found out was that Criminal Minds was a different type of show,” he says of his initial skepticism. “We were the little train that could. There were so many doubters, and 11 years and 251 episodes later, I’m very proud. It’s nice to exhale now. I feel really at peace with the fact that I left it all out on the field.”

  1. I wonder why they waited so long to give him a family storyline. we met members of his family but never a love interest. I feel like his exit was rushed. we should have seen a wedding and not just a photo. I’m glad we got to see the baby tho. I’ll miss him but I’ll still watch, his replacement may be just as good.

    And 11 seasons after the same thing, I think anyone would get tired. I applaud him for sticking around that long, that is until his contract ended… and now he can do other projects, like movies!
