Agent Prentiss is back!

Actress Paget Brewster will be returning to Criminal Minds for a multi-episode arc during the CBS drama's upcoming 12th season, E! News reports. Her character, SSA Emily Prentiss, will return to the Behavioral Analysis Unit to help the team track down 13 escaped serial killers.

"We're excited to have Paget Brewster back for multiple episodes in our 12th season," Criminal Minds executive producer and showrunner Erica Messer said in a statement. "The BAU can use more help this year since they've got a lot of known and unknown subjects to catch."

Although Brewster left Criminal Minds as a series regular in 2012, she has returned to the show multiple times, most recently after the exit of Shemar Moore as a series regular.

Season 12 of Criminal Minds premieres Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. on CBS.
