We gave it a C-

9-10PM · CBS · Returns Sept. 24

Yes, one of the core cast members really does die in the season premiere, but exec producer Ed Bernero won’t say who. He will say that there’s a new communications director for the BAU team, played by Day Break‘s Meta Golding. And upcoming villains will be played by actors as varied as Jason Alexander (”He’s a little bit funny at first, [but] then you realize how twisted this guy is”), Wil Wheaton (”He plays a guy who owns a roadside motel, where you check in but you don’t check out”), and Luke Perry (”playing a David Koresh-like cult leader in a hostage standoff”). We hope this doesn’t mean Luke won’t be showing up where his real cult formed: on 90210.
