Attention “Criminal Minds” fans, Emily Prentiss is back in the building, at least for one episode.

CBs confirmed that Paget Brewster, who had a long run playing Prentiss, will return to her old stomping grounds for the 200th episode of “Criminal Minds.”

“Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,” said Executive Producer/Showrunner Erica Messer. “We can’t imagine telling this story without Paget being present.”

The episode, according to the network, will look into what happened to JJ Jareau (A.J. Cook) during her year away from the BAU, and how that will help the team’s efforts to solve a present day case. Joe Mantegna, Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness and Jeanne Tripplehorn also star.

Brewster starred for six seasons on the show, with her final episode running on May 16, 2012.
