Former 'Criminal Minds' Actress Books a Return to the Show EW
A former "Criminal Minds" star who left the long-running series last year has booked a return to the program. EW.com's Inside TV reports that actress Paget Brewster will make a guest appearance for the series' 200th episode.
"Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” executive producer Erica Messer said in a statement. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”
Brewster played Emily Prentiss, a special agent. Her character was cut from the CBS show during the sixth season, but because of fan protest, she was rehired the following season. In early 2012, she said she would leave the program to pursue other career options.
