Fans of the show will remember that during the series finale Criminal Minds, Penelope Garcia took a job at a non-profit organization and quit the BAU. Per television lineShe has been happily sitting at home during the pandemic following her strict COVID-19 work protocols, enjoying her new workplace when the BAU team calls. She finds herself thrown back into the world of dangerous criminals and one truly frightening individual. It can be assumed that Penelope will continue to provide the team with all the necessary outside help, along with her inimitable sense of fashion and wit.
Speaking to TV Line, Kirsten Vangsness touched on her character’s role in the original Criminal Minds. She noted, “I’ve done 324 episodes of the show where most of the time, I would say 90% of the time, I’m doing the exposure alone in the room, not talking to anyone and pretending they’re there.” It looks like things will be different for Penelope Garcia in Criminal Minds: Evolution. Vangsness excitedly described how her character was more active in front of the camera and how Garcia would be seen in legitimate exchanges with other on-screen characters. She went so far as to say, “Dude, if you don’t like Penelope Garcia, you’re going to have to fast-forward a lot of this program because I have to do a lot of things.”
Viewers and fans will have to wait and see how deeply Penelope gets involved in the team’s upcoming daily dramas.
