The tenth season of Criminal Minds is all set to premiere on Star World this Thursday, Oct 29.
The premiere episode will see Blake returning to Boston to teach full-time and Prentiss declining the request to return due to which, Hotch is interviewing for the vacancy on the team. Who he hires is a known entity to the team, namely Kate Callahan. Her first case working for the BAU takes them to Bakersfield, California, where three human torsos have been found in deserted locales within the past month – one male and two females. The team soon discovers that the unsub has sold some of the limbs on the black market. Those sales and the identities of the victims may provide some clues as to the unsub’s identity and location.
Speaking about her journey over the past 10 years, A.J Cook who plays the character Jennifer J.J. Jareau said, “Yeah, just looking back at how much JJ’s grown and changed. I mean, I’ve literally grown up on screen for the whole world to see. You know, that first episode I’m in, like, a pink blazer. I look like FBI Barbie, and it’s ridiculous.”
Adding further ‘Dr. Spencer Reid’ a.k.a Matthew Gray Gubler said, “We’re part of a really lucky group of actors that get to play a single character for, like, a decade. And I think one of the special things about our show, and the reason it has an appeal, is it’s important, I think, for TV characters to grow. And a lot of times, you know, in the old days, in the TV that I grew up with in the 1980s, the characters were always kind of stuck in time and didn’t allow for a lot of growth, maybe.”
Criminal Minds Season 10 premieres on Star World, Thursday 29th Oct, Mon – Fri 11pm.
