Jennifer Love Hewitt Cast as Series Regular on Criminal Minds Season 10

by at . Comments

Jennifer Love Hewitt is headed back to CBS.

The former Ghost Whisperer star has been cast as a series regular on Criminal Minds Season 10, the network confirmed today via press release.

She will come on board as Kate Callahan, a veteran undercover agent whose outstanding work at the FBI has enabled her to nab a position with the Behavioral Analysis Unit.

We'll first meet Callahan on the October 1 season premiere.

"We’re thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast,” says 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."

Hewitt essentially takes over for Jeanne Tripplehorn, whose Alex Blake exited the series on the Criminal Minds Season 9 finale.

Are you psyched for Hewitt to come on board?

Nooooo! I was so excited to see who they'd pick, and they pick one of maybe five actresses in the world I actually detest? Cry. I might have to stop watching, no matter how much I love Gubler.

Can someone tell me why Blake left the series. I know why Gideon and Prentiss left, but not Blake.

why Her? that spoil bimbo...as soon as i see Jeniifer Love H becomes the main star of Criminal minds, i won't watch my favorite show. Can't stand her. I love the team: rossi, Hotch Garcia, Morgan, Reid, JJ why somebody new? they need to write interesting stories, and keep exploring the life of the team... not the life of a Diva

i likd Alex Blake a lot, why people don't like her? because she don't interact with the team too much.. She have a good relation with rossi and Reid,...but she was kind of appart from the team. Hotch is serious, but she cares about the team, Rossi interact with the tem from the beggining. I hope producers learn that the team is important because fans have favorites characters and don't like their favorite characters are relegate to a secondary role, less air time. less lines, worse scripts...don't do that to JLH: give her enought time, integrate her with the rest of the characters,, don't make her the main star of the show,etc etc

she is not my favorite actress, i don't like ghost W: or the clien't list. Why hiring another member? Note: fans will be happier if she is team member, no the big star of CM give her a nice character and make sure the rest of the cast has enought air time.

Criminal Minds Quotes

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.

Thomas Merton once wrote "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone. We find it with another."
