ETA: I don't have a link but saw an article which said TPTB are going to show next season as two mini seasons, with each mini season (12 eps) airing right in a row. So if this is right we will get 12 eps in 12 weeks, then a long break, the 12 more eps in 12 weeks. Awesome!
I read about this during Upfronts. I don't remember if all the networks are doing it, or if it's just ABC, but I read "they" want to try this out with many of their shows and air mini shows, like reality shows, during the long breaks. I don't know how I feel about it. I love the idea of having 12 episodes air, but how long will that break be?
