Good news, Criminal Minds fans: JJ and Garcia will be back for Season 13.
Vangsness and Cook, who have each been with Criminal Minds since Season 1, were seeking parity with male co-star Matthew Gray Gubler, who has also been with the show since Season 1 but was paid more. Deadline says that their raises "essentially" put them on par with him, and they were willing to walk if they didn't get it. Gubler and Joe Mantegna closed new deals last month.
