On April 7, CBS will air an episode of Criminal Minds that paves the way for its planned spin-off.

On that installment, Agent Hotchner's BAU team will join up with new operatives led by Forest Whitaker's Sam Cooper. Together, they all investigate an outbreak of murders in San Francisco.

In the photo below, Whitaker is seen with Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J. Cook and Joe Mantegna:

Forest Whitaker on Criminal Minds

Last year, CBS spun-off NCIS successfully to create NCIS: Los Angeles, one of the highest-rated shows on TV. It's safe to assume this new version of Criminal Minds will also get picked up this fall.

If that's the case, it will also star Beau Garrett, Matt Ryan and Michael Kelly. Below, we've posted three more pictures from the April 7 episode:

Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Mays: Seriously?
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Mays: How?
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.
