TV Guide posted “Everything You Need to Know” about season 12, and here’s an excerpt quoting Executive Producer Erica Messer:

4. Gotta catch ’em all (and by “them,” we mean unsubs)

The premiere will pick up in real time, having skipped over the summer, during which the BAU has caught eight of the 13 unsubs who broke out of prison.

“We didn’t want Season 12 to be all about catching these 13,” Messer says. “We felt like we had so many other stories to tell that are our bread-and-butter stories that we felt like making the whole season about 13 guys and gals who got away before was just going to be a little repetitive. So instead, five felt like a reasonable number. Certainly, five throughout a 22-episode season feels different enough.”
