(Simon Baker plays Patrick Jane)

M-Net (Channel 101) will screen the first episode of Season 6 of The Mentalist on June 11 at 20h30.

Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor sharp skills of observation and psychological manipulation. Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a former psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned.

His final act in playing a psychic was to challenge the serial killer Red John on television -- resulting in the murder of Jane's wife and daughter. Now, Jane longs for revenge, having narrowed down Red John's identity to a list of seven possible suspects. Jane's role in cracking a series of tough, high-profile cases is greatly valued by his fellow agents. However, no-nonsense Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon alternates between reluctantly acknowledging Jane's usefulness and blasting him for his theatrics, narcissism and dangerous lack of boundaries.

Lisbon's team includes agents Kimball Cho, Wayne Rigsby, and Grace Van Pelt, who all agree that Jane is a loose cannon, but admire his charm and knack for clearing cases.

The Mentalist stars Simon Baker as Patrick Jane with Robin Tunney as Teresa Lisbon.
