The Mentalist is currently on a long mid-season hiatus, but fans can still get their Patrick Jane fix.
Filming continues to roll on for the second half of season 6, and The Mentalist cast has been busy dropping hints about what is next for Jane (Simon Baker) and his FBI pals.
With "Black Helicopters," "Grey Water," "White as the Driven Snow," "Violets," and "Silver Wings of Time," filmed and waiting for the series to return to air on March 9, the CBS drama has commenced work on episode 18.
Set to air after the departure of Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) and Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti) in "White as the Driven Snow" and following the introduction of Teresa Lisbon's new boyfriend in "Violets," episode 18 will be titled "Forest Green."
Penned by Jeffery Hatcher, "Forest Green" will be helmed by veteran Mentalist director Eric Laneuville ("Red Listed"). The episode will make the fist time that Rockmond Dunbar, who recently joined the cast as Dennis Abbott, gets to work with Laneuville on the CBS series.
"Working with the awesome Eric Laneuville today! Bruthas making TV look so good!@Mentalist_CBS," Dunbar tweeted excitedly on Tuesday.
