200th Episode Will Air Later This Season

Sept. 30, 2013 – Paget Brewster will return to CRIMINAL MINDS as Emily Prentiss for its 200th episode.  The milestone episode will air later this season on the CBS Television Network.

“Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” said Executive Producer/Showrunner Erica Messer.  “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”

In the episode, glimpses into the past shed light onto what happened to JJ Jareau (A.J. Cook) during her year away from the BAU, and will also prove valuable in the team’s efforts to solve a present day case.  Joe Mantegna, Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness and Jeanne Tripplehorn also star.  Brewster starred for six seasons on CRIMINAL MINDS. Her final episode aired May 16, 2012.

    You go, girl.

    Wasn’t she gonna be in a sitcom, or something?

  • PurpleDrazi

    She was in the ABC comedy Pilot “Spy” but it was not picked up.

    I’m happy to see her back on CM for a guest spot as she was my favorite character but I’d rather she get on a comedy show. She is actually very funny.

    The show is just different without Paget. Glad to see her back, even for just one episode.

  • Josh

    The show really hasn’t been the same without her. Can’t wait for the 200th episode!

    I wish shed stay and get rid of jean tripphorn her character is boring

    Can’t wait for Paget Brewster’s return ! Haven’t watched it since she left. Can’t watch the boring acting of Jeanne Tripplehorn. She would probably work well on another show but brings nothing to Criminal Minds.
