After a year away from Criminal Minds
, Shemar Moore is set to make his return to BAU during the upcoming season 12 finale. “I was so blessed to do 11 years on Criminal Mind
s and bring Derek Morgan to life. Flirt with my original ‘baby girl’ Penelope Garcia, chase all the UnSubs and bad guys and kick down doors. I miss it, but one door closes and another one opens,” Moore recently told ET
. Not only is the actor back on Criminal Minds
, but he produced and stars in the new rom-com The Bounce Back
and leads the cast of the CBS pilot S.W.A.T.
, taking over Samuel L. Jackson's character, Hondo, from the 2003 movie.
