The Mentalist: Renewed for Season 7!

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.

The Mentalist Quotes

Jane: I was hoping to dazzle you all with my uncanny detective skills, but you forced me, you forced me to reveal the humdrum facts and point out that you have blood on your shoes, Heather.
Lisbon: Can you step out of your shoes ma'am?
Jane: Stop the presses! That's the phrase right, stop the presses? Always wanted to say that.

Patrick: You don't like the way I drive, you despise it.
Teresa: You drive way too fast.
Patrick: I drive just fast enough. You hate not being the one in control and yet you're willing to overcome your irrational fears to cheer me up. That's a beautiful thing, Lisbon. Thank you, I'd love to drive.
Teresa: Never mind.
