A familiar face is here to stay!

Paget Brewster, whom we last saw in "Tribute" last Spring, returns as a series' regular for Season 12 of Criminal Minds. Reprising her role as Interpol agent Emily Prentiss, Brewster is back on set and is as excited as we are!
Criminal Minds' Executive Producer and Showrunner Erica Messer said in an interview with Variety"We're all so excited to have Paget back with us full time."

SSA Emily Prentiss, who joined the team the end of Season 2, quickly became an integral member of the BAU. She grew into an exceptional agent and friend, but left to pursue international justice at the London Interpol office.

 Along with new team member Luke Alvez, played by Adam Rodriguez, Prentiss returns this season to help the BAU track down the 13 prison escapees from the Season 11 finale.

Emily Prentiss has returned on multiple occasions over the seasons to help her friends whenever they've needed her—and this time is no exception! "The BAU family has definitely missed her, on screen and off," added Messer.

We can't wait for Brewster's triumphant return as a series regular this Fall.

Watch all-new episodes of Criminal Minds on Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS and CBS All Access.
