The Mentalist: Renewed for Season 7!

by at . Comments

CBS kept fans waiting until the final moment, but finally delivered unexpected great news today:

The Mentalist will return for a seventh season.

Catching Jane's Eye

Not listed among the 18 renewals announced weeks ago by the network, many believed The Mentalist would be canceled following this month's Season 6 finale.

However, CBS surprised many today in confirming the Simon Baker/Robin Tunney-anchored drama will be part of the 2014-2015 schedule.

On the flip side, CBS axed five shows this morning, including first-year failures. The Crazy Ones and Intelligence.

The Mentalist Season 6 finale airs on Sunday, May 18.

Speaking as a past AND current fan, what are you talking about? Besides, this will probably be the last season. I'm thinking they wanted to give it a proper send off instead of just canceling it. I heard rumors of a shortened season. Honestly I don't care. I liked the show before but was SICK of the RJ story. I adore the new version in the FBI. It's been tons of fun.

I'm absolutely ecstatic that "The Mentalist" was renewed. Much of the credit goes to the millions of fans who tweeted, wrote, and posted on Facebook to save the show. Congratulations to Simon Baker, Robin Tunney and the cast and crew of this great show! On to Season 7 and many, many more season after that!

Um, NO. This show was voted the winner in the USA Today annual SAVE OUR SHOW poll. There has been a TON of fan activity trying to get it renewed. I didn't like the ending of RJ either but then I was SICK of that story anyway. LOVE the new version. So much fun!
