Before we head off for a long, labor-free Labor Day weekend, let me offer you a behind-the-scenes look at some very hard-working people: the cast of Criminal Minds.

In early August, I visited the set of the CBS procedural to get a sense of what’s going on at the BAU now that A.J. Cook and Paget Brewster are back full time (and test Matthew Gray Gubler’s skateboarding skills ).

Take a look at the video below, featuring the aforementioned, Joe Mantegna  (pictured), Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness, and fearless team leader Thomas Gibson. I apologize in advance for my terrible camera skills, but hopefully that doesn’t put a damper on the cast’s (and, I’m guessing, the fans’) prevailing message: This is a reunion to look forward to.

And for more on Criminal Minds, pick up this week’s Fall TV Preview issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now. Criminal Minds returns Sept. 21.
