Jennifer Love Hewitt's "Fearless" Agent and a Jane Lynch Return? 7 Teases for Criminal Minds Season 10

Erica Messer can't think of a more perfect day for Criminal Minds to turn 10.

"Episode 10.1 airs on 10/1. How cool is that?" Messer tells TVGuide.com. "It wasn't planned. We didn't know that until we started back up and we were well in the swing of things, and [CBS] mentioned that the premiere would be a little later than usual because of Extant and Survivor. So it's great timing."

But for Messer, "seven" is the magic number for Season 10. After Jeanne Tripplehornleft the series in the Season 9 finale, Messer told TVGuide.com at the time that she wasn't sure if they would replace her or just stick with the remaining six BAU members. "It was a really big, long conversation with the network and the studio, and they said, 'Let's go ahead and try to find someone new,'" she says.

Criminal Minds: Can JJ and Cruz Work Together?

Erica Messer wants to set the record straight: JJ and Cruz are not having an affair on Criminal Minds.

"I'll say it again: They did not and are not having an affair," the showrunner tells TVGuide.com. "It only seems like they are."

Fall TV Report Card: How is the new class doing?

And don't JJ (A.J. Cook) and Cruz (Esai Morales) know it — the former especially. On Wednesday's episode (9/8c, CBS), Cruz returns to the show for the first time since he was suddenly named BAU ...

9 Teases for Criminal Minds Season 9: Flashbacks, the 200th Episode and... an Affair?!

Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer can sum up Season 9 in one word: backstories. 

"That's our focus this year," she tells TVGuide.com. "We're telling backstories and origin stories. We want to give everybody some insight into our heroes because we give insight to the unsubs every week. We're going to hit 200 [episodes] and it feels like, 'Let's tell the audience things they never knew before.'"

That involves an old beau for Garcia (Kristen Vangsness), The Reaper (C. Thomas Howell) and Haley (Meredith Monroe) returning (but not from the dead), and filling in the blanks of JJ's (A.J. Cook) year in the State Department during Season 6 — with some help from new BAU section chief Matt Cruz (Esai Morales), with whom she worked there. What's the deal with those two? How does Garcia's ex come back into the picture? Get the scoop on the season below:

Holiday Weekend Playlist: Garish Candelabra, Earnest Ring

No one saves face in director Steven Soderbergh's ghoulishly entertaining, opulently produced Behind the Candelabra (Sunday, 9/8c), HBO's grandest, gaudiest and most fascinating movie in quite a long while — probably since last year's Game Change, in which Julianne Moore's uncanny impersonation of Sarah Palin swept the awards the way Michael Douglas is likely to repeat with his equally astonishing transformation into the flamboyant but closeted "Mr. Showmanship" Liberace.
