Season 8 of the hit series The Mentalist there seems almost to be a logical consequence. But unfortunately, see the creators and producers differently: Autumn 2014, it was announced that the seventh season is definitely the final season will be. Officially, were not told why, but one can infer two reasons for the end of The Mentalist:

  • First, the case was around Red John dissolved (Spoiler &# 8211; who has not seen the sixth season, should just stop here to read): In the eighth episode of the sixth season with the telling title &# 8220; The game is over&# 8221; the identity of Red John is announced: Contrary to the assumption that the former CBI chief Gale Bertram is the serial killer, the Sheriff Thomas McAllister out to be Red John. The central story arc the series has thus an end to the makers, the question had to ask: What's next? Of course you can just continue to solve cases, but is that enough to keep the viewer?

In the third season of The Mentalist then tuned in only about 15 million viewers and from the fifth season the ratings were even only about 11 million. In addition to that the cost of the cast increased, as had to be renegotiated after the end of the sixth season again. In total, therefore, was more cost less ratings. Summary: The end of the series.
