Criminal Minds‘ quasi-Season 16 finds the FBI’s elite team of criminal profilers going up against “their greatest threat yet,” an UnSub who spent the pandemic cultivating a network of other serial killers. Now, with the world opening back up, the UnSub’s network goes operational, and the BAU team must hunt them down, one murder at a time.

The BAU team in question is comprised of veteran cast members Paget Brewster (as Prentiss), Joe Mantegna (Rossi), A.J. Cook (JJ), Kirsten Vangsness (Garcia), Aisha Tyler (Tara) and Adam Rodriguez (Luke). As previously reported, neither OG cast member Matthew Gray Gubler nor Season 10 addition Daniel Henney will be reprising their roles, as Spencer and Matt respectively.

Friday Night Lights vet Zach Gilford, meanwhile, will play the aforementioned season-long baddie, Elias Voit, an operations analyst for a global cyber-security firm who has a dark side and obsession with death.
