In the seventh and final season, Golden Globe and Emmy ® Award nominee Simon Baker (Margin Call, The Guardian) returns as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor sharp skills of observation and psychological manipulation. Winner of the People's Choice Award for Favorite New Drama and recently nominated by for Favorite TV Crime Drama, THE MENTALIST also stars Robin Tunney (Empire Records, The Craft, Prison Break), Tim Kang (The Forgotten, Two Weeks Notice), Rockmond Dunbar (Sons of Anarchy,), Joe Adler (Shameless, The Maze Runner) and Josie Loren (Make It or Break It).
Formerly employed by the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Jane spent two years off the grid after tracking down and killing Red John, the serial killer who murdered Jane's wife and daughter. Jane later cut a deal with the FBI to work for them, convincing former CBI Agent Teresa Lisbon (Tunney) to join him. They are supervised by the no-nonsense Agent Dennis Abbott (Dunbar), and work alongside former CBI agent Kimball Cho (Kang), FBI analyst Jason Wylie (Adler) and young, ambitious Agent Michelle Vega (Loren). Now that Lisbon and Jane have confessed their love for one another, they must find a way to be partners in both their professional and personal lives.
Created by Bruno Heller (Gotham, Rome) and executive produced by Heller, Chris Long (Weeds, Monk, Criminal Minds) and Tom Szentgyorgyi (Lie to Me, NYPD Blue), the series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and distributed internationally by Warner Bros. International Television.
