The Mentalist 100th Episode Teased By Creator Bruno Heller

The chase for Red John in The Mentalist is gonna have to stay on the back burner for a while.

In celebration of the show's 100th episode, exec. producer and creator Bruno Heller talked to TV Guide where he happily shared some details of this exciting episode.

It's a bit of an origin story, creator Bruno Heller tells us. Viewers will get to see Jane's first days working with the CBI. That means seeing old faces again (welcome back, Gregory Itzin!), as well as seeing familiar characters in a new light. "It's a great chance to see Jane as he once was and the team as they were before he joined and what they all gave to each other," Heller says. But will anyone look a little different? "We've ordered five fat suits," Heller jokes.

'The Mentalist' airs every Sunday on CBS.
