“Criminal Minds” fans are rejoicing.

Big favorite Paget Brewster will reprise her role as FBI Supervisory Special Agent Emily Prentiss for the hit CBS drama.

“We’re excited to have Paget Brewster back for multiple episodes in our 12th season,” Erica Messer, executive producer/showrunner for the series, said in a statement.

The procedural crime drama focuses on a team of profilers from the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico, Virginia.

Brewster has had quite the career on the show.

She was hired during season two and quickly became a fan favorite. Viewers were unhappy when she was let go from the show during season six, and Brewster was quickly rehired.

The actress announced she was leaving at the end of season seven to pursue other opportunities, but producers have brought her back occasionally, including for the 200th episode during season nine.

News of Brewster’s return was applauded on social media.

“Criminal Minds” returns for the new season on September 28.
