*Aisha Tyler has been upped to series regular on “Criminal Minds” for its 12th season, CBS announced this morning at the Television Critics Association press tour.

Tyler plays Dr. Tara Lewis, a forensic psychologist specializing in studying and interviewing serial killers after they’re captured to determine if they’re able to stand trial.

She first appeared on the series in 2015, during the Season 11 premiere, then, went on to recur in 19 episodes throughout the season.

Tyler’s permanent gig on “Criminal Minds” will not impact her role on CBS’s daytime show “The Talk.” Geller confirmed at TCA that Tyler will balance both gigs, à la Julie Chen with “The Talk” and “Big Brother.”
