Criminal Minds Luke Perry

Riverdale dad Luke Perry will reprise his role as Criminal Minds cult leader Benjamin Cyrus in the CBS crime drama’s Season 14 premiere.

Perry, whose Season 4 UnSub has been dead for a while now, is but one of multiple “surprise” guests on tap for the series’ 300th episode, EW.com reports. (As showrunner Erica Messer told TVLine, amidst picking up and resolving the May cliffhanger, the premiere will find times to acknowledge its milestone.)
