The thriller television series Criminal Minds: Season 12 shakes the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) to its very core…or so we’re lead to believe from the press release announcing the new DVD!

Unforeseen threats lead to sudden changes on the team, beginning with the addition of Luke Alvez (Adam Rodriguez), whose fugitive tracking skills are put to the test on day one. Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) returns from London to take over as the new Unit Chief, joined by Stephen Walker (Damon Gupton), a seasoned profiler in his own right. Back on the case are agents David Rossi (Joe Mantegna), Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau (A.J. Cook), Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), technical analyst Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness), and Dr. Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler). As the BAU grows in numbers, their enemies only grow stronger. This new team must learn to work together to stop the killers, psychopaths, masterminds, hackers, abductors and other dangerous perpetrators that await them!

The six-disc DVD contains all 22 episodes from the crime-drama TV show’s twelfth season, along with the following bonus features:
