Emily Prentiss is coming back to the BAU…for one (very special) episode.
CBS announced today that former Criminal Minds star Paget Brewster, who exited the series last year, will return for a guest appearance in the show’s upcoming 200th episode.
“Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” executive producer Erica Messer said in a release. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”
As previously reported, the milestone hour takes a glimpse into the past and sheds light onto what happened to JJ Jareau (A.J. Cook) during her year away from the BAU. It will also prove valuable in the team’s efforts to solve a present day case.
The episode will air later this season.
