Thomas Gibson can only think of one way to sum up Season 6 of Criminal Minds.
"The sh-- hit the fan basically. And you can quote me on that!" he tells TVGuide.com. "But the great thing is now we feel more reenergized than ever. There's a whole fresh energy on set and we're all really excited for this year."
And why not? After drawing fans' ire for dumping A.J. Cook and Paget Brewster last year — in addition to hiring Rachel Nichols — CBS rehired the two actresses in the spring and dropped Nichols, bringing the BAU's core seven back together. "As we should be," according to Gibson.
While JJ (Cook) was briefly reintroduced in the season finale, Prentiss (Brewster) will come back from the "dead" in Season 7 after Hotch (Gibson) and JJ faked her death to evade her IRA nemesis Ian Doyle (Timothy V. Murphy), whom Morgan (Shemar Moore) has now "made it his life journey" to pursue. "There is really only one way that she can come back as herself," Gibson says. "That's what has to happen in order for her to come back."
