Paget Brewster Returning To 'Criminal Minds'


Paget Brewster is returning to "Criminal Minds." Brewster, who was last seen on "Criminal Minds" in May 2012, will appear as Emily Prentiss in the 200th episode. Brewster starred in six seasons of the CBS procedural.

“Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” Erica Messer, executive producer/showrunner, said in a statement. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”

In the episode, viewers will get glimpses into the past and learn what happened to JJ Jareau (A.J. Cook) during her time away from the BAU. The past will also be valuable to the present day case.

Brewster teased her return on Twitter in early September.

The 200th episode will air later this season.

"Criminal Minds" airs Wednesdays, 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
