There's been plenty of speculation about the series' future since it wrapped up its seasons-long Red John mystery earlier this year. When it wasn't included in the network's big batch of renewals announced in March, we started to think that maybe this was the end for the Simon Baker series. Rumors were swirling about the show being shopped to other networks, but it looks like CBS just isn't ready to part with it just yet.
Unfortunately, that's not the case for several other series. The network has canceled dramas Intelligence and Hostages, as well as freshman comedies Bad Teacher, Friends With Better Lives, and The Crazy Ones.
Their spots on CBS's schedule will be divided amongst all the new series the network ordered on Friday, which include NCIS and CSI spin-offs, Matthew Perry's Odd Couple remake, and more.
Are you excited for The Mentalist, or were you ready to say goodbye? Bummed about any of the other shows? Indifferent all around?
