The Mentalist season 5 premieres tonight in its new time slot. Showrunner Bruno Heller promises a big season in terms of the Red John story. The show will take a leap forward so Jane and the audience will learn something important about the elusive serial killer, Red John that makes the hunt for him “inches away instead of miles.” The focal point of the season will be Red John’s accomplice (Emmanuelle Chriqui) who was captured in last season’s finale. The CBI, Jane and the FBI will battle for custody over the key witness who can reveal the killer’s identity. The agents are led by guest star, Polly Walker (Rome). Ivan Sergei (Crossing Jordan) also joins the series as FBI Agent Gabe Mancini. Bruno Heller doesn’t say when the identity of Red John will be revealed but did hint that he may be an existing cast member.
The cast includes Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, Tim Kang as Kimball Cho, Owain Yeoman as Wayne Rigsby, Robin Tunney as Teresa Lisbon and Amanda Righetti as Grace Van Pelt.
