Although fans are really happy with the news of Joe Mantegna, Kirsten Vangsness, and Paget Brewster returning to play the main leads in the upcoming series, they are also sad with the series’ alum Matthew Grey Gubler not being part of the reboot.
In an interview, Paget Brewster, when asked about Matthew not returning, revealed that “From 25 to 40, the guy was on one show, and that’s when we shot 22, 24 episodes a year. He was never able to go do other stuff, so I understand.
He wants to direct. He graduated from NYU to direct, and his first audition was for Criminal Minds”. Even though Matthew won’t return for the upcoming season of the reboot series, fans are hoping and praying that he joins the rest of the cast in the next season, if it happens.
Fans have also been expecting Matthew to himself reveal the reason why he is not in the reboot of the much-loved series, and also reveal whether or not he will reprise his role from the original series and will be joining the cast for future seasons.
