There has been news flowing in about CBS’ newly launched spin-off “Criminal Minds: Beyond Border,” one of the latest buzz involves a new addition to the cast.
Fans will be delighted to learn that a familiar face is stepping in to take on the role of Karen Garrett. Yes, it is none other than ER alum, Sherry Stringfield. You probably caught on to the character’s name, Karen Garret and her last name surely rings a bell, if you have been following the show.
According to report on TVLine, “Criminal Minds: Beyond Border” will see Stringfield play Karen Garrett, who is Chief Jack Garrett’s (Gary Sinise) wife on the show. Stringfield will be coming quite soon to the show and fans may see her step into the role this May, where she will be introduced in one of the episodes as a mother of five and Jack’s wife.
As reported by CinemaBlend, not all the backstories for the kids have been penned down yet. But, it is known that one of the kids has followed in the footsteps of his father and happens to be an FBI recruit. We also know that one of the other kids is a student at the University of Southern California.
Until now, there is no word on whether the drama will be renewed for the second season but if it does, fans will see Stringfield reprise her role as Karen Garrett on the next season and probably the following seasons.
“Criminal Minds” has always followed the families of the leads and it turns out that the spin-off will be steeping onto that route as well. However, fans sure wouldn’t like to see the fresh start move towards becoming as grim as “Criminal Minds” turned to be in the years that followed its successful run.
“Criminal Minds: Beyond Border” fans can keep coming back for more updates and information on their favourite show.
