8 min read

Criminal Minds introduces the potential new spinoff tonight, followed by a new episode of CSI: Cyber. You can find sneak peeks, interviews, tweets and photos after the jump!

Here’s the first clip from the Criminal Minds episode “Beyond Borders”, featuring International Unit Chief Jack Garrett (Gary Sinise), Mateo Cruz (Esai Morales), David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) and Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson). (It is originally from TV Line.)

Zap2It shared this exclusive scene, in which Garrett and his teammates Lily Lambert (Anna Gunn) and Matthew Simmons (Daniel Henney) say hello to Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore) and JJ Jareau (AJ Cook):

This next clip features Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) and another member of Garrett’s team, Russ “Monty” Montgomery (Tyler James Williams). (You can also find it on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)

TV Fanatic offered this sneak peek, in which Garcia and Monty speak to the victims’ family:

Here’s another clip featuring Garcia and Monty. (It’s also available on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)

Next, check out this scene from TV Guide, which features Garrett, Lambert, Simmons, Hotch, Rossi, Morgan and JJ:

CBS shared a behind-the-scenes featurette about the potential spinoff, which you can watch below. It features Mantegna, Gibson, Executive Producer Erica Messer, Sinise, Gunn, Henney and Williams. (It’s also available on TV Line and CBS Press Express.)

Messer spoke to TV Guide about the spinoff, including this quote:

[Executive producer] Mark Gordon had been wanting to do another spin-off and I felt like we just needed to wait until we found the right idea. Certainly going the international route felt like it was the right thing to do, the right time to do it. We are 10 seasons in. It answers that spin-off dilemma, which is: How is this show the same but different from the mothership? And I think we were able to solve that nicely by saying that [the two shows are] the same in that they’re profilers solving crimes via behavior, but it’s different because they’re doing it outside of our country when Americans are in trouble.

Here’s another interview with Messer, this time from TV Fanatic. Check out this excerpt:

TVF: Does the group kind of have that family feel that we’re used to in the mothership?

EM: Yeah. This team has been together for a while as well so they have a shorthand with each other and then an additional layer to that is that they know the BAU team. So there’s a comfort level there. You especially see it with Hotch, Rossi, and Gary’s character, that they know one another and Anna Gunn’s character and Hotch know one another well enough.

What we’ve established is the BAU is so busy [and] they’re traveling all the time, they don’t really have a chance to stop and have social visits with other people who are also traveling the world solving crimes. So, the idea is that they’re all familiar with one another and have a very supportive coworker type vibe about them, and the new team that’s introduced in this episode is small.

It’s Gary Sinise, Anna Gunn, Daniel Henney, and Tyler Williams, so we’re only meeting four of the characters. Presumably at a series level, we would be adding another character, but that’s the quality problem to have…so the goal will be to end up falling in love with these characters and their relationship to one another, and their family unit the way people did with Criminal Minds. It’s lightning in a bottle. It won’t be the same obviously because it’s ten years of a show that people have grown to love and love the characters, but I think we’ll be able to get there with the new cast as well.

The two FBI teams work together to solve the case in tonight’s episode, and there is no rivalry between them. “They all are very aware of one another. There’s no, ‘Who’s that?’ ‘Can we really work together?’ or ‘Why are we doing this with you?'” Messer told TV Guide. “They’re all the best at their jobs. We go all over the country. These guys go all over the world. There’s a familiarity between all of them, but they never get a chance to work together until now.”

Messer also did an interview with TV Line about “Beyond Borders”, and here’s an excerpt about Sinise’s character:

TVLINE | To the extent that you are familiar with his CSI: New York character, how would you juxtapose the two?

I don’t know a lot about Mac Taylor. I watched it a little bit and I did some research because I didn’t want them to be the same. So, right off the bat I know Mac lost his wife in the tragedy of 9/11, and as a result he had a really hard time sort of loving again, and I didn’t want to repeat that in any way. I said to Gary, “Look, the reality of the FBI is, I think, the stats are worse than the national average in terms of divorce. We could either have you represent that portion of people who don’t survive a career in the FBI and a marriage, or we can go the opposite, where you’re representing the ones that do.” There’s also something really “lovely” about showing that marriages do last through difficult times, and that’s perhaps a generational thing. I know my grandparents and my parents were married until death did they part, and Gary also grew up with that idea that you don’t throw it away when it stops working, you fix it. So he’s got kids, and one of the oldest just got into the academy and wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps.

Henney told The Korea Times last month that his character, Matt Simmons, is an All-American family man. “I am super excited because we have never, ever seen seen this character from an Asian actor before,” he said. “Under any other circumstance, I can’t believe they would come to an Asian American actor. Props to CBS for giving it a shot with me. We’re going to do some great things with it.”
