Paget Brewster Returns Criminal Minds 200thCriminal Minds will get a blast from its recent-ish past when fan fave Paget Brewster returns for the CBS crime drama’s 200th episode.

Rumblings about Brewster’s possible comeback started earlier this month when the actress tweeted a picture of her Criminal Minds makeup kit, seemingly from the set.

Plus, cast member A.J. Cook teased to TVLine just last week that in Season 9, “We’re going to see a lot of familiar faces,” adding a playful gasp.

Airing in February 2014 and shedding light onto what happened to JJ during her year away from the BAU (aka Season 6), “Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,”  showrunner Erica Messer said in a statement. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”

Since exiting Criminal Minds at the close of Season 7, Brewster has guested on Law & Order: SVU and Modern Family (both of which are Wednesday-at-9 shows, natch) and appeared in the ABC pilot Spy (which failed to make this TV season’s schedule).

Are you thrilled to get an encore of some sort from Brewster/Prentiss?

    I’m sooooooo sad that they killed Prentiss off the show. :( I luv her, she was my fav. They should get her back on the show!!! Please!

    • Angela says:

      Er…they never killed off her character. She faked her death the first time she left, but that’s it (and if her character HAD actually died, it’d be a wee bit hard to bring her back, unless they did flashbacks). And the second time the actress left of her own choosing, it wasn’t the writers’ idea to let her go. Emily showed up in the 200th episode this past season, too.

  2. Gina says:

    it seems to be common among Criminal Minds admirers that Emily Prentiss needs to come back to the show for good. She had great chemistry and she was dynamic. I show without her is boring and not worth watching and I would think would have bad effect on theratings of the show. Stop Miloe mousing around and get Emily Prentiss back where she belonged and I guarantee you you will have a much happier audience

  3. Gina says:

    do you not care about the ratings of your show. Emily was perfect and there was no reason to take her out of the show and just bringing her in for one show is stupid. If this program wants to continue to be a successful as it has been they need to bring Emily back.

  4. Pauline negrete says:

    I’m sorry but Jeanne Trippelhorn isn’t as exciting as Emily Printess. I miss her interaction with the rest of the cast. It was family

  5. Please bring Emily back.

  6. Maurice Racine says:

    Would love to have Padgett Brewster back on a regular basis. Really miss her. She ‘s excellent in the role.

  7. mary ann says:

    i loved paget brewster better than anyone.
    bring her back

  8. The fact that this instinct cannot be quenched as easily as the others, makes it even more tempting.
    It is for this reason that we will consider it separately, apart from the general view of religion, giving it a category of its own.
    Those facing North bear the Abhaya (fearlessness) mudra, while those in the East show the
    Bhumisparsha (earth-touching) gesture.

  9. C-minds lover says:

    We want Emily back! Blake can go to hell.

  10. amanda says:

    its great to have paget back even if only for one episode Prentiss was and always will be my favourite character it lost its appeal for me after paget went to the point where I rarely watch it any more
