CRIMINAL MINDS Season 10 - CBS Interview Introducing Hewitt's Callahan - Video - SPOILERS!

CRIMINAL MINDS Season 10 - Jennifer Love Hewitt: "Kate's the 'Barney Fife' to Hotch's 'Andy'" - EW Interview

By Natalie Abrams

Get ready to meet the newest member of the BAU when Criminal Minds debuts its 10th season.

Ghost Whisperer alum Jennifer Love Hewitt is returning to CBS this fall as FBI Agent Kate Callahan, who will gladly fill the void at the BAU after Blake's (Jeanne Tripplehorn) sudden exit in the season finale. The team will welcome her with open arms after spending the summer down a man, so to speak. How will she fit in? And what made Hewitt return to broadcast television? EW caught up with the actress to get the scoop.

EW: How did you joining Criminal Minds come together?
JLH: I had been on a break for a bit being a mommy. They were looking to add a new cast member and obviously I spent some time at CBS before, doing Ghost Whisperer. Honestly, I had always wondered and been waiting to find the perfect way to get back. My first CBS experience was so awesome. They're great, and Les [Moonves] has been great to me. I was really excited when they called and asked to take a meeting. I met with [showrunner] Erica [Messer], who I've known since I was 14 from Party of Five. I hadn't seen her in a really long time, so it was great to catch up with her. It all fit and the timing was perfect.

EW: Tell us about Kate Callahan.
JLH: Kate is a really interesting woman. She comes to the BAU with her own experience, which I like. I wasn't quite sure at first if I was going to be a newbie who hadn't done this before. When they told me about her, I was...

CRIMINAL MINDS Season 10 - Jennifer Love Hewitt's "Fearless" Agent and a Jane Lynch Return? 7 Teases for Season 10 - TVGuide Interview + Mega Buzz!

by Joyce Eng

Erica Messer can't think of a more perfect day for Criminal Minds to turn 10.

"Episode 10.1 airs on 10/1. How cool is that?" Messer tells "It wasn't planned. We didn't know that until we started back up and we were well in the swing of things, and [CBS] mentioned that the premiere would be a little later than usual because of Extant and Survivor. So it's great timing."

But for Messer, "seven" is the magic number for Season 10. After Jeanne Tripplehorn left the series in the Season 9 finale, Messer told at the time that she wasn't sure if they would replace her or just stick with the remaining six BAU members. "It was a really big, long conversation with the network and the studio, and they said, 'Let's go...

4. Jane Lynch is (maybe) back!
It's been six years since we last saw Reid's schizophrenic mom Diana, but now that Glee is ending — with a shortened season at that — chances are looking...

5. Don't scratch
The season's still young, but Messer promises that the fourth episode is the show's "grossest episode yet." There's not much in the way of...

6. A love letter for you — yes, you!
To celebrate the big 1-0, Messer is planning a major midseason episode — similar to last season's 200th episode — that will have many...

7. Replicating The Replicator (story line)
For the second time ever, the series will feature a season-long unsub, who will be introduced at the end of...
