The Mentalist to Introduce New Series Regular

at . Comments

The Red John mystery will be solved on The Mentalist Season 6.

Before the calendar year is up, no less.

So, what will this mean for the relationship between Jane and Lisbon?

Investigating an Heiress

Series creator Bruno Heller touched on that topic in a chat with TV Line, teasing the upcoming introduction of a new female cast member in early 2014.

"The chemistry has always been there bubbling up. But he now has other priorities and other agendas and other pressures," Heller says of Jane and his feelings about Lisbon. “When you’re as good a detective as Jane is, it’s very hard to walk away even when you want to walk away... Some people wont let Jane walk away from what he’s so good at. And our new female lead has something to do with that.”

Interesting. Cryptic. Intriguing.

The Mentalist Season 6 kicks off on Sunday, September 29.

WHY is heller doing this!! :( he knows we want 2 see jane and lisbon together i hope jane does not have feelings for the new female cuz if he does or date her i will stop watching 4 real :(


I just hope it's not another f*cking love interest for Jane. After Erica and Lorelei, I don't think I'd be able to take it. I'm really tired of bitches coming around. They need to stop that. But well, as other people said, maybe it'll be a new boss or someone who will offer a higher position to Jane or sth like that.

I disagree, Michael, and your post was rude. This could be competition for Lisbon, but she could also be a new supervisor. I hope they bring back Hightower! I came to like her.


I hope this means Lisbon is Red John she need to leave I DO NOT want this show to become will they wont they gay love movie


New female lead? Does that mean Lisbon is leaving? I hope not!
