After being away from CBS for four years working on several projects including her short lived series The Client List on Lifetime, Jennifer Love Hewitt will return to CBS as the newest cast member on their hit series Criminal Minds.
“We’re thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast,” said showrunner Erica Messer. “Many of us on the show have enjoyed working with her over the years and look forward to again. We have exciting storylines planned for her character and the entire BAU team as we head into our 10th season.”
She is set to play Kate Callahan, a “seasoned undercover agent whose stellar work at the FBI has landed her a coveted position with the Behavioral Analysis Unit.”
Criminal Minds will premiere its tenth season this fall on CBS.
