New plot spoiler for the upcoming Season 11 of CBS' hit police-procedural drama TV series "Criminal Minds" has arrived and was published on TV Line this week. It indicates that the opening episode will feature the Behavioural Analysis Unit interviewing a bunch of candidates who will replace Kate Callahan (Jennifer Love-Hewitt).
Among the applicants include a forensic psychologist, Dr. Tara Lewis. The role will be played by Aisha Tyler. The proceeding will be initiated by Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson). Dr. Lewis will prove to be "the best applicant" and that will end her "helping the BAU team in an investigation."
Entertainment Weekly previously shared the official description of the character:
"Her dream was to study psychopaths up close and personal – and her psychology background, combined with her experience in the FBI, brought her face-to-face with monsters. Her job was to stare them down and interview them, in order to determine if they were fit to stand trial. In the process, she made herself find the humanity inside these broken men (and, sometimes, women) in order to learn if there was a conscience behind their brutal crimes."
Last month, the official social media account of the show published a set photo showing Joe Mantegna (as David Rossi) and Tyler. The latter's Twitter account, meanwhile, showed herself posing with the rest of the cast members including Shemar Moore(as Derek Morgan), Gibson, and Matthew Gray Gubler (as Spencer Reid).
TV Line went on to tease that Season 11 will also find the BAU hunting for a "serial killer who leaves behind distinctive evidence that points to someone intent on revenge."
"Criminal Minds" Season 11 debuts Sept. 30 on CBS.
