GIDEON, HOTCHNER AND THEIR TEAM CONTINUE TO SEARCH
FOR THE PSYCHOPATH WHO USED PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ENSNARL THEM IN THE MYSTERY OF A MISSING YOUNG GIRL, ON THE SECOND SEASON PREMIERE OF "CRIMINAL MINDS," WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 20
ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
"The Fisher King, Part II" -- The team continues to unravel the clues and riddles of a psychopath in order to save his most recent victim, on the second season premiere of CRIMINAL MINDS, Wednesday, Sept. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Gloria Muzio directed the episode from a story by Edward Allen Bernero, one of the series' executive producers.
Instead of focusing on the personal aspects of the case, Gideon tells the team to profile the killer as they would in any other investigation. While the team splits up to hunt down the killer, Dr. Reid stays behind to work on the clues -- and uncovers a personal connection that cannot be ignored and could crack the case wide open. Meanwhile, one of the team fights for their life.
CRIMINAL MINDS revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. Special Agent Jason Gideon is the FBI's top behavioral analyst and he joins the Behavioral Analysis Unit lead by Special Agent Aaron Hotchner, a family man who is able to gain people's trust and unlock their secrets. Also on the team are Elle Greenaway, an agent with a background in sexual offenses; Special Agent Derek Morgan, an expert on obsessional crimes; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid, a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, a confident young agent who acts as the unit liaison for the team, and Penelope Garcia, a computer wizard who helps research the cases. Each member brings his or her own area of expertise to the table as they pinpoint predators' motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.
CRIMINAL MINDS is produced by Touchstone Television, in association with CBS Paramount Network Television. Mark Gordon, Ed Bernero and Deborah Spera are the executive producers.
