CBS Renews 'The Mentalist' For A Seventh Season
CBS has renewed The Mentalist for a seventh season. The renewal for The Mentalist comes after months of rumours that the Warner Bros. produced drama may not be coming back, especially as it was left off of the network’s mass renewal back in March.

'The Mentalist' To Move To New Network For Season Seven?
The Mentalist could possibly move to a new network next season. Series producer Warner Bros. Television is shopping the Simon Baker fronted procedural to broadcast and cable networks should, as seems likely at this point, CBS opt not to renew The Mentalist for a seventh season. TNT is considered the most likely home for The Mentalist. Once a ratings hit for CBS, The Mentalist has been struggling to draw viewers since the network moved the series to Sunday nights alongside The Good Wife and word has been circulating for months that CBS was considering letting the series go.
