'Criminal Minds' news: A.J. Cook in talks to return

Posted on

It’s true, A.J. Cook is in talks to return to Criminal Minds as a series regular.

The former Minds co-star left the show at the start of this season after her character was transferred to a job at the Pentagon, but is now in discussions to rejoin the show for next fall.

Minds is also on the verge of getting a new mastermind: Sources confirm longtime showrunner Ed Bernero is exiting the CBS crime drama. All told, quite a shakeup on a solidly performing series.
