Criminal Minds will add Jennifer Love Hewitt to its regular cast for season 10. Hewitt will play Kate Callahan, a former FBI agent whose exceptional work earned her a spot on the Behavioral Analysis Unit. She’ll be introduced in the Oct. 1 season premiere.

TV Line spoke with Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer, who said she’s “thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast. 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 first rose to TV prominence as a cast member of Party Of Five, before starring in her own CBS procedural, The Ghost Whisperer. Her most recent role was on Lifetime’s The Client List.
