He might even act indifferent in front of the newcomer, hailing from FBI’s Fugitive Task Force. Erica Messer, the showrunner, and executive producer declared that Rodriguez’s character would be the part of a major storyline in the coming season. Messer revealed that exciting storylines had been developed for the entire BAU unit, including the new character.
However, when it comes to police procedural drama, Rodriguez is not a new character at all. He is highly popular for portraying Eric Delco’s role for 11 seasons in CSI: Miami. He further appeared in recurring roles for Empire and Jane the Virgin.
During an interview, Thomas Gibson told The National that in spite of its long existence on TV, there are lots of things to be witnessed in season 12 of Criminal Minds.
In other news, Paget Brewster, the Criminal Minds actress who plays the role of agent Emily Prentiss has indicated that she might come back anytime on Criminal Minds. After her coy tweets, fans started guessing her return to the show.
When Prentiss left in season 7, Alex Blake assumed her position until she left in Season 9. Kate Callahan, her successor, lasted a single season before doing the same. According to some fans, if she returns in season 12, it might be a temporary role.
