Criminal Minds brings on Beyond Borders star
Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders may be gone, but Matthew Simmons lives on. EW has confirmed that the character will be coming to Criminal Minds proper, with actor Daniel Henney added as a series regular for season 13.
Story-wise, this means that Daniel will be leaving the International Response Team, where he spent two seasons helping to solve cases involving American citizens on foreign soil. He’ll now be joining the Behavior Analysis Unit alongside series veterans like Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook, who recently re-signed for the new season.
Earlier this month, the show announced that Daniel Gupton would be leaving after one season.
Season 13 of Criminal Minds will debut Wednesday, Sep. 27 at 10 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
