Check this out, a few months ago we were not even sure if there was ever going to be a seventh season of the hit police procedural TV series, The Mentalist. However, now the show has a brand new cast member for their next season.
TV Line confirms that Josie Loren (Make it or Break it, 17 Again) has been cast as a potential series regular.
The actress will join the CBS drama in the role of Michelle Vega, an eager rookie FBI agent, who joins Patrick Jane's team. It is expected that the character will know nothing of Jane's past and will be taken aback by his bizarre, rule-breaking methods.
As it is known, original cast members Owain Yeoman and Amanda Righetti departed the series this spring, leaving the rumors of the show not returning even more rampant.
CBS has yet to announce a return date for [The Mentalist](series:722481), but most likely, we should expect the first episode of the seventh season in the autumn.
