CRIMINAL MINDS Season 9 - Paget Brewster Returning to Criminal Minds for 200th Episode

by Joyce Eng

Prentiss is back!

Paget Brewster is returning to Criminal Minds for the show 200th episode later this season, has learned.

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

The 200th episode will shed light on JJ's (A.J. Cook) year in the State Department during Season 6 and the case she worked on with new BAU section chief Matt Cruz (Esai Morales), who will make his debut in the fourth episode. "[Episode] 200 is...

  1. No comments, how can there be no comments. Best News of the Day even though we knew this already!

  2. Yes! We get Paget back at least for an episode. Makes me happy that both parts agreed for a return and this opens the door for potential future appearances. Paget always conducts herself with integrity and professionalism (considering her media appearances and interviews) and she did a great job with Prentiss. Hope we see her in Flashbacks/Present time. You know what is funny? They can use the little cat that is on the set as Little Sergio for a flashback! - The Rookie

  3. I'm glad for Prentiss fans that Paget is going to come back. I'm guessing it's going to be through flashbacks to look more into JJ's involvement. I just hope JJ and Hotch talk about that time or we see them back in that time because two seasons later and they had a thirty second scene in 7x01 together vaguely mentioning their shared secret.

    I like Prentiss, she's not my fav and I haven't really missed her but I'm happy for Prentiss fans.

  4. Awesome idea on Little Sergio!

  5. I've never been a Prentiss fan and couldn't care less about her return. But I know a few who are and I am happy for them. I hope they do go back to Hotch and JJ since Hotch didn't want to let JJ go and said he was going to try to get her back.

  6. I guess it is good for Prentiss fans. I used to like the character until the writters decided to make her a super spy, and then am asset for different international agencies. When her story went that way, I wished she would have stayed dead. Anyway, with this 200 episde being a JJ centric one, plus Prentiss and the new guy screen time I am bored already. Then again, I hope JJ and Prentiss fans will enjoy it.

  7. She was an important part of the original team. But knowing she left because she wanted to and was done with the show, I accepted it. It will be interesting to see her interaction with the team; this season sounds like it's going to be a fulfilling one for those of us who like to see more of the personal lives of the BAU. Thank you to the writers for giving us that. CM is still the best show out there!

  8. Awesome news as she had been an integral part of the team so flashbacks to JJ's past would have to include seeing Prentiss if that's part of the storyline. Paget left because she had been jerked around by the show bosses and decided it was time to move on. I'm glad to see her come back even for one episode though I'd prefer more.
