The Mentalist has upgraded to series regular, TV Line has revealed. The former Southland actress was originally signed up for three episodes but obviously she's made a good impression during her short time on the show. She plays Kim Fischer on the police procedural and very little is known about the enigmatic character other than "she will have a profound impact on Jane’s life." Make of that what you will.
Swallow will make her first appearance on The Mentalist on the December 1st episode, My Blue Heaven.
What impact do you think Swallow's character will have on the show?
