The revival series Criminal Minds: Evolution takes place three years after the original Criminal Minds finale. The Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) has changed significantly. Matt Simmons and Spencer Reid are on a mysterious assignment, while Emily Prentiss has become Unit Chief and is no longer in the field. The remaining team members, including David Rossi, JJ Jareau, Tara Lewis, and Luke Alvez, work alone or in smaller groups.

 The most surprising character to catch up with is Penelope Garcia. She officially left the FBI in the finale and has experienced personal and professional growth since then. Garcia is now involved with a safe social media network for minors. Although reluctant at first, she agrees to help the BAU with their investigation due to her connection to the victims through her network. Garcia's character development is evident when she stands up for herself against Rossi. Her growth raises the question of whether she can work for the BAU again. Her complicated relationship with Tyler Green adds to the dilemma. This exploration of Garcia's character brings depth and a fresh perspective to the series.
