He may be about to head up his own new drama series on CBS, but that didn’t stop S.W.A.T. star Shermar Moore from saying yes to a return to Criminal Minds for a brief but welcome reprisal of his role as Derek Morgan.
Moore will guest in the season’s fifth episode, airing Wednesday, Oct. 25 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).
In the episode, Morgan returns to the BAU to help Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) deal with a case that has affected her emotionally.
Moore was an original Criminal Minds cast member from 2005-2016 (252 episodes). On Nov. 2, he takes on the role of sergeant Daniel Hondo Harrelson in CBS’ newest cop drama S.W.A.T.
Criminal Minds stars Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J. Cook, Aisha Tyler, Kirsten Vangsness, Adam Rodriguez and Daniel Henney.
Mark Gordon, Erica Messer and Breen Frazier are executive producers for ABC Studios in association with CBS Television Studios.
