Simon Baker’s current contract will expire by the end of the season.

One of our favorite procedural crime dramas on TV, the Mentalist is set to premiere its last season on CBS. It would be the seventh season of the show and it will feature 13 episodes. Creator Bruno Heller said that the drama will not be rush ended but will have a proper send-off.

CBS network announced the schedule for the show and its closer than you think. The season premiere would hit the screens on 30th November of this year. The show will be filling in for The Good Wife which would be taking its fall break.

It will air for five consecutive weeks in the Good Wife’s slot and will then be moved to air on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. when The Good Wife returns. It will continue till the season finale which is set to air on the network on February 18. Then we will say good bye to our crime psychic for good.

Or will we? News is that the production studio for the show, the WB Studios is trying to sell the rights of the show to various other networks. TNT seems like a good contender to make the decision to but the show but they would definitely want to see the current rating of the show’s last season.

They would definitely have to make a new contract because the current contract of the main actor of the series; Simon Baker will be expiring by the end of the duration of the season. Patrick Jane would drive off forever more.

It’s nothing to be sad about. Bruno Heller and his co-creator Tom Szentgyorgy are definitely pulling an all out effort to end the show with a proper send off. The show definitely took a right turn creatively in the middle of the sixth season when Patrick joined the FBI and moved from California to Texas.

This season we might be seeing Jane adjusting with the FBI and solving a few cases with them to prove to the audience that he is better off. It would definitely be worth it to watch the show and say good bye to one of our favorite crime dramas until later or not.

“One of the goals this season was to keep expanding our lineup of year-round, original programming and have fewer repeat cycles,” said (via EW) Kelly Kahl, senior executive vice president, CBS. “We’re fortunate to have two popular, proven ratings winners in The Mentalist and Undercover Boss to seamlessly join our schedule.”
