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.

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:
