A New Chapter for J.J. Jareau

When "Criminal Minds: Evolution" premiered on Paramount+ in November 2022, fans eagerly welcomed the return of their favorite FBI agents. Among the returning characters was J.J. Jareau, portrayed by A.J. Cook, who showcased a profound transformation. Cook viewed her return as an opportunity to navigate a new direction for J.J., reflecting the real-life challenges many have faced in recent years.

A Realistic Portrayal

Upon reuniting with J.J., fans noticed significant changes. J.J. appeared visibly exhausted, balancing her roles as a full-time wife and mother to two boys during the COVID-19 pandemic. It had been some time since she was in the field after the BAU was disbanded. "We picked up 'Criminal Minds: Evolution' during the pandemic, and we wanted it to feel real," Cook explained. "I wanted J.J. to look exhausted, with little to no makeup and undone hair.

J.J.'s physical transformation was only part of her journey. In Season 1, Episode 4, J.J. faces a personal crisis when her husband, Will LaMontagne Jr., played by Josh Stewart, undergoes medical testing for potential cancer.
