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.

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.

Her final episode aired May 16, 2012.
