After leaving in the seventh season of Criminal Minds, Paget Brewster is back for another episode that will air this spring.

In the episode, Brewster will ask for help from the BAU when she believes that an international killer she is tracking will strike in America.

This is the second time that Brewster will appear on the show since she left to work at Interpol. She retuned for the 200th episode in 2014.

“Paget is always welcome back,” Erica Messer, the show’s executive producer, said. “It’s always about scheduling. She’s busy, as she should be, she’s got a new show, and it also has to make sense story-wise. We don’t want to dip into that well too often. When she comes back, it has to be special and make sense. But she’s family and is always welcomed.”

The return is a bit shocking considering the actress shamed CBS in an interview

“So now A.J.’s gone, I’m training Rachel Nichols to replace me and A.J., I died, and then I shot a pilot that didn’t go… and then it was announced that I was returning to Criminal Minds! And I called my agents, and I said, ‘I’m not! What do they mean I’m returning to Criminal Minds?’ And they said, ‘Well, they added another year to your contract for you to get those 17 episodes,'” she told AV Club. “And I couldn’t understand that. So I was forced to go back or… terrifying things were inferred. And I was kind of pissed, but then I went back and thought, ‘I love everyone there!’ I hated CBS. [What they did] was just scummy.”

The actress then retracted the statement by adding that the creative team and actors behind the show were great.

“But everyone at Criminal Minds I really enjoy and I really like and I really care about,” she said. “So I did that last year, and then I said, ‘I love everyone here, but I realize now, having left, that my heart isn’t in it.’ And that’s what they wrote for Emily Prentiss: They wrote Emily Prentiss saying, ‘Since I’ve come back, I’ve realized that my heart isn’t in it, and I want to do other things.’ And it was true. That was just true from how I was feeling about the situation, and I wanted to do comedy.”

Criminal Minds is on Wednesdays on CBS.
