Aisha Tyler, who has had a recurring role on Criminal Minds for the past two seasons, has been promoted to series regular for the CBS procedural drama’s 12th season. Tyler will continue to play her role as psychologist Dr. Tara Lewis.  Over the past two seasons, Dr. Lewis has proved to be an invaluable asset to FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU). She has worked on several cases and proved that she has what it takes to catch criminals.

Season 12 will pick up following the season finale when Hotch (Thomas Gibson) was apprehended at his home in front of his son for suspected conspiracy.  As the BAU raced to prove his innocence, they discovered a larger plot concerning a planned prison break by 13 serial killers, now on the loose.

Season 12 of Criminal Minds premieres September 28 on CBS.

Tyler started her television career in 2001 as the host of Talk Soup, and went on to host The Talk and Whose Line is it Anyway?  She has been a guest star on popular shows such as CSI: Miami, Nip Tuck, Boston Legal, Reno 911!, and had season long recurring roles on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and 24.  Tyler also appeared in several films including The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3.
