The Mentalist writer Jordan Harper has confirmed that Currie Graham will return to the show.
Harper posted a message on his Twitter feed revealing that the actor would reprise his role as millionaire Walter Mashburn in a forthcoming episode.
He wrote: “I’ve been told that the cat is out of the bag, so I guess it’s okay to tell [the] fans that I said hey to Currie Graham yesterday.”
Series creator Bruno Heller later told Entertainment Weekly that Mashburn would continue his flirtation with Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney).
“As the story unfolds, it seems someone is determined to have Mashburn’s blood, and Mashburn is determined to have Lisbon,” he quipped. “Someone is going to get their wish.”
The character previously appeared in the second season episode ‘Redline’.
