It was reported late last night by Ausiello that AJ Cook, who plays Jennifer “JJ” Jareau on CBS’ Criminal Minds has been cut from the show. His sources confirmed that the producers opted not to pick up her option.
In addition, he is reporting that Paget Brewster (Emily Prentiss on the show) “is in talks to remain a series regular, although her episode count is expected to be reduced.”
Both decisions were made “for financial reasons.”
While I’ve never been a huge fan of either character, I don’t like the decision to break up the BAU team. What do you think?
