That includes an advanced look at the returning cast.

In the video, the core BAU members do the “of course” challenge, saying specific things to their characters. Aside from them, however, the fun Criminal Minds: Evolution season 2 BTS video also includes Zach Giiford who plays Elias Voit, and Hatanaka who plays the Green — Penelope Garcia’s one-time fling partner.

Despite the BAU working with Green, it’s worth remembering that there’s still a lot that isn’t known about the character

Not only will Hatanaka return as Green, but he will also have an expanded role in Criminal Minds: Evolution season 2. This is after he debuted as one of the new players in the freshman year of the Paramount+ revival. Green was able to infiltrate Elias Voit’s serial killer ring, and stealthily roped Garcia and the BAU into helping him take down Sicarius. In season 2, BAU recruits Tyler as a consultant since their case with Voit is far from over despite the Unsub already now in FBI’s custody

It’s curious if Green’s return is somehow linked to the show delving deep into the team’s history. Season 2 is revisiting Jason Gideon’s legacy by introducing his ex-wife. It’s unclear if other Criminal Minds characters from the past will return, but it would be impressive if the writers could find a link between new players and people from the BAU’s past. If not, Green’s involvement may be purely tied to Voit and the ongoing mystery of Gold Star. The show further exploring his whirlwind romance with Garcia will add more drama to an already tense season.Despite the BAU working with Green, it’s worth remembering that there’s still a lot that isn’t known about the character. Considering this, Emily Prentiss and her team need to be vigilant when dealing with him since he may be part of a bigger conspiracy relating to Gold Star. If not, Garcia should still keep her distance from him in Criminal Minds: Evolution season 2, considering their past tryst.
