Shemar Moore on 'Criminal Minds' Finale - Producers Explain Why He Came Back!

Shemar Moore‘s character Derek Morgan was brought back for the 12th season finale of Criminal Minds last night, and now producers are revealing their reasoning why.

“Shemar’s appearance was a sort of a dual purpose,” executive producer Erica Messer said (via EW). “Fans have been missing him, obviously. And we had such a big story line with Dr. Reid all year that would have been great to have him a part of.”

“He got cast in this S.W.A.T. pilot, and we knew if it went to series – and all signs point to yes – we would never to get to use him again. So it felt like now or never,” she added about Shemar‘s new show.

Which 'Criminal Minds' Star is Leaving the Show?

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

Shemar Moore is exiting Criminal Minds after 11 seasons.

The 45-year-old actor’s character Derek decided to leave the Behavioral Analysis Unit to focus on his family, which was revealed in the latest episode.

“It’s a weird experience,” Shemar told THR. “I just spent 11 years with a group of people and it’s a weird thing to walk away from — but I did it on my terms and in the right way.”

He said, “Derek Morgan isn’t walking off because Shemar is done with the show. Derek is walking away because there’s part of his life that’s missing and that he has an opportunity and he risks that every day but he needs to be a dad and experience that and be by his wife.”
