To the excitement of its fans, CBS' hit drama, Criminal Minds, will be airing its 200th episode during its ninth season, and executive producer Erica Messer recently served up the inside scoop.
The EP released the following statement on the highly anticipated February installment, also revealing that Paget Brewster (Emily Prentiss) will be making a return:.
"Our 200th episode is going to be a special show. We can't imagine telling this story without Paget being present. There's no hearing in this one like in [episode 100 and the season seven premiere], but different characters flash back to fill in the blanks to solve the present-day case, which is JJ in jeopardy.
Messer continued on, stressing that the celebratory installment will be packed with several character flashbacks.
"200 is flashback-heavy, but with things fans who've watched all 199 will be happy with. Our goal is to reward everyone who's been with us for 200 episodes," he added.
CBS' Criminal Minds will be airing its third episode on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. Central Standard Time. Be sure to keep checking back with Enstars for more of the latest details. A promo trailer for its upcoming episode can be viewed below.
