CBS announced Friday that Criminal Minds has been renewed for Season 12.

The procedural wrapped up its most recent season on May 4 and was noticeably absent from the network's early renewals list. But this wasn't anything new for Criminal Minds fans. This was the third time in the past four years that CBS waited until the last minute to renew the long-running series.

That didn't stop executive producer Erica Messer from planning the plot of Season 12, which will feature the team having to track down 13 unsubs who broke out in the finale.

Are you excited Criminal Minds is returning?
