Starting in January, "each will fall under suspicion and be looked at during the course of various episodes," executive producer Tom Szentgyorgyi told TV Guide.

Szentgyorgyi won't reveal whether any of these CBIers will actually have ties to Red John, but does tease: "In 2011, the investigation will take a startling turn and the team will change dramatically."
