Paget Brewster Returns to 'Criminal Minds'


Paget Brewster is returning to the gritty CBS police procedural Criminal Minds for its exciting 200th episode.

Brewster, who played beloved Special Agent Emily Prentiss, left the show during Season 7, last year. She had begun in Season 2, with her character working for six years as a supervisor for the show's Bahavioral Analysis Unit.

When she left, Brewster hinted that the door would possibly be open for her return in the future, and since Emily Prentiss didn't die in her last episode, it was always a possibility that she could return.

Recently it was announced that a similar decision had been made by former original CSI cast member Marg Helgenberger to return for that CBS drama's 300th episode.
