More news again with a rehash of old. Another new love interest for Patrick Jane to compete with Libson for season 7.
The seventh season of "The Mentalist" will add a new character, according to a report.
that a rookie FBI agent named Michelle Vega will join the cast of the
popular TV show. According to the web site's spoiler chat, "a new woman
is about to enter Patrick Jane's (professional) life. The CBS drama is
casting the series regular role of Michelle Vega, a rookie FBI agent who
is a student of combat and weaponry and is unfazed by high-pressure
situations (such as when the show awaited that 11th-hour renewal)."
This is the first time that a casting spoiler was revealed for the
series bidding goodbye next season. Despite the spoiler clearly saying
that Michelle Vega will enter Patrick Jane's professional life, how will
this new agent affect Teresa Lisbon? The final episode of season 6
showed Patrick Jane admitting his feelings for Teresa.
Meanwhile show creator Bruno Heller hinted that "The Mentalist"
season 7 will be action-packed and will be filled with thrilling chases.
"Up until now if you're comparing it to Moby Dick, which is one of the
analogies I used to describe the length of the chase, next season the
whale has been sighted and they're in the small boats and chasing the
whale," Heller told Entertainment Weekly report.
Heller could be referring to the long chase that Patrick Jane is
after. However, the show creator also said that the final season will
follow the usual format of new mysteries every week.
To the disappointment of many fans, "The Mentalist" season 7 may have
fewer episodes. Latest talks claimed that the series will have 13
episodes next season to bring conclusion to the series. Moreover, the
series may lose its timeslot on Sunday's primetime due to its poor
ratings in the past.
"The Mentalist" season 7 will be back on air in the fall.
