Amanda Righetti & Owain Yeoman Are Leaving The Mentalist In Season 6!
Here’s the spoilers for The Mentalist from Michael Ausiello at TVLine on Aug. 6th, 2013.
Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman to Exit in Season 6
It appears the fallout from The Mentalist‘s looming Red John reveal is extending to the show’s call sheet.
TVLine has learned exclusively that original castmembers Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman will be leaving the CBS procedural toward the end of Season 6 (premiering Sept. 29 at 10/9c).
The departures of colleagues and sometime-lovers Van Pelt and Rigsby will likely tie into this fall’s unmasking of Red John, a six-year-old mystery whose resolution is poised to set the show on a new course.
In a statement to TVLine, series creator Bruno Heller would “neither confirm or deny” our story, but acknowledged that The Mentalist is heading into its “most dramatic and game changing season and anything can happen.”
As teased in last week’s Ask Ausiello, one two new series regulars — one male and one female — will be introduced in early ’14, presumably to fill the eventual void left by Righetti and Yeoman.
The Mentalist returns with episode 6×01 The Desert Rose on Sunday Sep. 29th, 2013 10/9c on CBS.
