A familiar face is returning to the BAU this season.
“Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” executive producer Erica Messer says. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”
In the episode, glimpses of the past shed some light onto what exactly happened to JJ (A.J. Cook) during her year away from the BAU, which will prove valuable to the team’s efforts on their present day case. While not confirmed, it seems likely Brewster’s Emily Prentiss will appear in the flashbacks.
Brewster starred on “Criminal Minds” for six seasons, with her final episode airing in May 2012.
“Criminal Minds” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS.
