This Is The Net Worth Of Criminal Minds' Shemar Moore

Besides its thrilling cases, one of the reasons fans love "Criminal Minds" can surely be credited to its incredible cast. Over its 17-year stint, the popular CBS drama has featured an ensemble of characters, some mainstays with others who come and go, that each play a key role in the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, or BAU. While the team is essentially made up of criminal profilers, each member brings something unique to the unit with their own specific strengths and area of expertise. For example, some fans think Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) is the best criminal profiler in the unit thanks to his no-nonsense attitude. Meanwhile, others think technical analyst Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) is the most useful on cases due to her incredible detective work while behind her computer.

One of the most-liked characters of the show among fans is Supervisory Special Agent Derek Morgan, played by Shemar Moore. Morgan is ridiculously good-looking, charming (as seen in his flirtatious quips with Garcia), and good with kids, so it's no surprise he's a fan favorite. Sadly, though, Moore left "Criminal Minds" in 2016 to pursue other projects, but at least he made a pretty penny.

Shemar Moore is worth some big bucks

Actor Shemar Moore is worth a good chunk of change thanks to his decades-long career in the industry. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Moore is worth a staggering $22 million and reportedly makes $175,000 a year. Surely his impressive net worth is due in part to the 252 episodes he filmed as Derek Morgan in "Criminal Minds" from 2005 to 2017. Back in 2011, Deadline reported that Moore was making $100,000 per episode of the crime drama, certainly making more in the later years, which all adds up quite nicely for him.

But Moore's net worth can also be credited to his long list of acting credits outside of "Criminal Minds." Before playing Morgan, Moore worked as a fashion model and then landed a recurring role on the famous soap opera "The Young and the Restless," no doubt earning a good paycheck. His salary also benefits from his voice acting work as Cyborg in several animated "Justice League" movies as well as his starring role in the crime series "S.W.A.T."
