Paget Brewster set to return to Criminal Minds

If you’re familiar with ‘Criminal Minds’ then you will know who Paget Brewster is. If you’re unsure or need a reminder, the character she is known for is ‘Emily Prentiss’. This spring, the actress is set to return to the show for a one off episode.

Paget plays the character of Emily Prentiss who first joined the BAU team in season two and replaced Elle Greenaway. The character lasted until season six where her role was reduced due to financial issues. Due to popular demand, however, Paget returned in the seventh season and said it would be ‘her last’ as a main character.

However, after much deliberation from the fans, Emily Prentiss will be returning to our TV screens. It’s all so exciting.

In the episode, which will be shown this spring, Prentiss will call her old friends at the BAU for their help after she believes that an elusive international unsub she’s been tracking at Interpol will strike again, but in America.

This will mark the second time that Brewster has returned to the show since she left. The last episode we saw her character was the 200th episode back in 2014.

Executive producer, Erica Messer told TVGuide.com, that she was hoping for the actress to visit again soon. ‘Paget is always welcome back,’ Messer said.Paget Brewster set to return to Criminal Minds 1

‘It’s always about scheduling. She’s busy, as she should be. She’s got a new show and it also has to make sense story-wise. We don’t want to dip into that well too often. When she comes back it has to be special and make sense. But she’s family and is always welcome.’

‘Criminal Minds’ airs Wednesdays on CBS in America while the show is on a mid-season break in the UK.
