Consider yourselves warned, bad guys: she knows what you did last summer.
In fun, surprising and sexy news, Jennifer Love Hewitt has signed on as a series regular for Criminal Minds Season 10.
The actress – who previously worked on CBS throughout the run of Ghost Whisperer – will debut on the October 1 premiere and portray Kate Callahan, an undercover FBI agent whose stellar work at that agency has earned her a position with the Behavioral Analysis Unit.
Hewitt basically takes over for Jeanne Tripplehorn, who left the series in May after two years.
“We’re thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast,” says Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer, adding:
“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.”
This casting should also increase the show’s viewership among young males by approximately 79 million.
