Why It Was the Right Move for ‘Criminal Minds’ to Add Matt Simmons from ‘Beyond Borders’ in Season 13

Change is the norm for the BAU, especially in the more recent seasons of Criminal Minds, and season 13 saw the team gain a new member right after it lost one in Scratch’s finale cliffhanger trap. But fortunately, it looks like Matt Simmons is going to fit right in after the end of the IRT.

As Prentiss put it in “To a Better Place,” IRT’s loss is the BAU’s gain — and the move is a good one for Simmons as well.

Simmons Was the BAU’s Fail-safe in the Scratch Investigation

The season premiere had to deal with the aftermath of the last season’s finale cliffhanger, and with Mr. Scratch responsible and very much in the picture, that had to be the focus of “Wheels Up.” And it was.

But at the same time, Matt Simmons had to be introduced as

Agent Matt Simmons Makes the Leap from ‘Beyond Borders’ to …

As a member of the International Response Team on Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Agent Matt Simmons (Daniel Henney) was used to packing his bags. Then he joined the original Criminal Minds’ Behavioral Analysis Unit in last week’s Season 13 premiere (Beyond Borders was canceled this summer).

His first proper assignment: finding a serial killer who stuffs his victims in suitcases. “At first, Matt was a shoulder to cry on, coming to the BAU’s aid when they needed him, providing strength and solidarity,” Henney says. “Now he’s going out into the field, breaking down doors and tackling bad guys. He’s also very good at profiling killers.”

‘Criminal Minds’ S13: No new actors coming to the show beyond Daniel Henney

#Criminal Minds has been one of the most popular long-running series since it originally premiered in September 2005. However, it has become a habit of the showrunners and producers to let go some of the important characters and replace them with fresh faces if not the returning ones. An example of a whirlwind cast replacement was #Thomas Gibson when CBS fired him after an alleged altercation with one of the show’s writers. Gibson was eventually replaced by Damon Gupton who played as Special Agent Stephen Walker. However, Gupton’s character was the casualty in the huge car crash during the Season 12 finale.

Another character bids goodbye

Overall, fans are not impressed with the habitual cast termination and replacement in “Criminal Minds.” As a result, people decided to quit watching the show especially when Thomas Gibson was terminated in August 2016 where fans started the massive hashtag #NoHotchNoWatch on

Criminal Minds: How Beyond Borders’ Daniel Henney Will Join the Team in Season 13

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders TV show on CBS: (canceled or renewed?)

How will Agent Simmons make the transition from Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders to Criminal Minds? Recently, executive producer Erica Messer spoke with Entertainment Weekly about season 13 of the CBS TV show.

As reported earlier, former Beyond Borders star Daniel Henney has joined the cast of long-running crime drama, which also stars Joe Mantegna, Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J. Cook, and Kirsten Vangsness.

Messer told EW that Agent Simmons (Henney) is called in to help locate the BAU team after that season 12 cliffhanger ending:

Garcia [Kirsten Vangsness] has just learned that her team is in trouble. And the first person she calls is Agent Simmons. He drives them to the site of the last known signal from the team. They discover this horrific car accident. Once they see who is injured, they discover that someone

Who’s dead or alive?

When Criminal Minds wrapped its 12th season on CBS, six members of the BAU team jumped into a pair of SUVs on a wild goose chase to meet Reid. But what happened was a straight-up disaster: somebody sabotaged their tires to blow up right in the path of an 18-wheeler truck — and it’s unclear who, if any, survived the devastation.

In anticipation of the drama’s Sept. 27 start date, EW got some exclusive scoop from executive

‘Criminal Minds’ Adds ‘Beyond Borders’ Star as Series Regular for Season 13

The worlds of Criminal Minds and the Beyond Borders spinoff are about to collide.

Beyond Borders star Daniel Henney has joined the cast of the flagship series as a series regular for season 13.

Henney will reprise his role as Special Agent Matt Simmons, which he played for both seasons of the spinoff before it was canceled in May. Beyond Borders, which returned midseason and aired behind the mothership, averaged a low 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 with delayed viewing factored in.

Special Agent Simmons comes onboard the Behavioral Analysis Unit, after having worked with the team in the past, including helping with the release of Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) when he was arrested in Mexico last season.

Henney’s addition comes after the departure of Damon Gupton, who joined the CBS drama in the midst of season 12 following the abrupt exit of Thomas Gibson, who was let go
