A long-running CBS drama series that is about to begin what has been billed as its final season may get a reprieve. “The Mentalist” is scheduled to premiere its seventh and final season Sunday, but creator Bruno Heller is hinting that the season may not be the show’s last, after all.
In an interview with EW, Heller said the series will have a true ending this season, with “the coda, the happily-ever-after chapter.” (For those into spoilers, Heller added a few more details.)
But he added, “There’s no reason why it couldn’t continue” if another network expressed interest. “It’s possible,” he said.
