"Law and Order: Criminal Intent," Dick Wolf's third installment of the "Law & Order" brand, was created and executive produced by Emmy Award winning producer Dick Wolf and developed by Rene Balcer. The show follows the Major Case Squad as it investigates high profile cases, usually homicides, such as those involving VIPs, local government officials and employees, the financial industry and the art world. "Criminal Intent" differs from other series in the "Law & Order" franchise because it gives a great amount of attention to the actions and motives of the criminals, rather than showing (almost exclusively) the police and prosecution's side of the case.

The show boasts an enormously talented cast led by critically acclaimed actor Vincent D'Onofrio (Detective Robert Goren); Kathryn Erbe (Detective Alexandra Eames); Julianne Nicholson (Detective Megan Wheeler) and Eric Bogosian (Captain Danny Ross) and the addition of Jeff Goldblum (Det. Zach Nichols).

Academy Award and Emmy nominee Jeff Goldblum ("Adam Resurrected," "Jurassic Park") has joined the cast for season eight and will be playing Zach Nichols, a detective who was born and bred in New York City, particularly the Upper West Side. With a distinctive style and quirkiness, Goldblum has made a name for himself in both movies and television. In 1995, he was nominated for an Academy Award for his live action short film called "Little Surprises," which he shared with Tikki Goldberg. In 2005, he received an Emmy nomination for his guest appearance as Frank/Scott on the hit series "Will & Grace." His film credits include "Man of the Year" with Robin Williams, Wes Anderson's "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park" and "The Lost World," "Independence Day" with Will Smith, "Nine Months" with Hugh Grant and Julianne Moore, David Cronenberg's "The Fly" and "The Big Chill" with Glenn Close and Kevin Kline.

Also new to "Criminal Intent" are Walon Green, Ed Zuckerman, John David Coles, Michael S. Chernuchin, Andrew Lipsitz and Timothy J. Lea who will be the new production team. Walon Green will serve as executive producer, showrunner and head writer, and Michael S. Chernuchin as co-executive producer for D'Onofrio/Erbe episodes, with John Coles as New York based executive producer and director, and Michael Chernuchin as co-executive producer for the series. Green has executive produced numerous episodes of the original "Law & Order" and several episodes of "ER." He also has written for "Law & Order," "ER" and "Conviction." Coles served as co-executive producer of the FOX series "New Amsterdam" and the CBS series "3lbs." Chernuchin has produced and written for both "Law & Order" and "24."

Nothing could be better than Vincent & Katheryn returning to CI & then it renewed. Who need's Jeff anyway?
rita says:
I haven't watched LOCI since Vincent left. I didn't like the fact that they made JG's character exactly like Vincent's. I don't like JG and thought he did a terrible job on LOCI. I would watch the show if Vincent returns.
tap says:
I am glad that CI is coming back. I have been watching all of CI's re-run. But they need to take Law N Order:LA off.
annmarie says:
When does LO CI season 10 start? Thank god Vincent is returning. I stopped watching after he left. He's AWESOME. Love him
mina says:
