CBS announced today that The Mentalist has been renewed for a sixth season. While the popular drama's ratings have slipped in recent years, it continues to draw stable viewership for the network.
Today's announcement by CBS included renewals of a large portion of their primetime line-up for the 2013-2014 season. Other dramas receiving pick-ups today include The Good Wife, Elementary, Person of Interest, and NCIS: Los Angeles. Notables still awaiting news include CSI:NY, Vegas, and Criminal Minds.
UPDATE: Season 6 of The Mentalist premieres on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 10:00pm.
Love the show. Great guest actors like George Wyner and David Paymer, matching Simon Baker's fine acting.

The Mentalist is one of the best shows on TV today. The only reason it has slipped in the ratings in recent years it the lousy timeslot it has been put in and especially on Sunday night.
With all the overruns on Football and Basketball it was a no show for the faithful fans which is a real disappointment when you have waited all week to watch it.
The CBS schedule team should be fired Monday and Tuesday night slots are pure gold put it back in that slot and watch the numbers fly.

One of the best shows on TV along with the Big Bang Theory, NCIS,Glee, Castle, Criminal Minds. The Mentalist can be another star trek if the network just keeps renewing it it will be a classic for many years to come...I have personally downloaded every episode right from the beginning and have it in my personal collection...I hope they give me at least another 4 years. This show should not end before the 10th year is completed!

I watch cbs exclusively just so that I can catch the mentalist, when ever you put it on--if you cancel it, I will never watch anything on your network again

That was the season finale?! The actress Gina Giancarlo said in 2 seconds I"m Red John as she was carted off in a police car taking a suicide pill. Huh... After all this suffering that is that? I will say That Robin Tuney' face lift looks amazing.

I ALWAYS LOVE THE MENTALIST, AND I WISH IT WAS BACK ON THURSDAYS. I MISS MOST OF THE EPISODES ON SUNDAY BECAUSE MOST CBS SHOWS ON SUNDAYS ARE DELAYED 15 MINUTES TO 45 MINUTES. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN THE MENTALIST WILL BE ON AND THE DELAY IS TOO LATE FOR ME TO WATCH. I WATCH MOSTLY CBS ALL WEEK EXCEPT NEVER ON SUNDAYS WHILE DELAYS ARE GOING ON.
