On Criminal Minds, Hewitt will assume the role of undercover agent Kate Callahan. Due to her stellar work with the FBI, she’s been promoted to a position in the Behavioral Analysis Unit. Hewitt will first be seen as Kate on Criminal Minds in the series' 10th season premiere and will be a regular on the show.

“We’re thrilled to introduce a new special agent by adding the very talented Jennifer Love Hewitt to our amazing cast,” showrunner and executive producer Erica Messer said in a statement. “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.”
