AceShowbiz - Although CBS canceled "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders" after two seasons, %cDaniel Henney% ("Three Rivers", "Hawaii Five-0" and "NCIS: Los Angeles") is staying in the franchise. Daniel, who played Matthew Simmons on the "Criminal Minds" spin-off, is set to join the flagship show as a series regular in the fall, Deadline reports.
Daniel will reprise his role as the special agent for the FBI's International Unit and a member of a Special Ops team. By joining the mothership show, it means that Matthew will be leaving the International Response Team to join the Behavior Analysis Unit alongside Penelope Garcia (%cKirsten Vangsness%) and Jennifer Jareau (%cA.J. Cook%).
Daniel's promotion comes a week after CBS announced that %cDamon Gupton% would not return for the upcoming season. Damon was tapped to replace %cThomas Gibson%, who was fired from "Criminal Minds" at the start of last season for an on-set physical altercation with a producer.
"Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders" was canned by CBS last May. In its second season, the spin-off only managed to average a low 1.2 rating among 18-49 demo with delayed viewing factored in.
Season 13 of "Criminal Minds" is set to debut on Wednesday, September 27 at 10 P.M. on CBS.
