Everybody’s favorite Firefly Companion and Homeland refugee is returning to CBS’ The Mentalist.

Morena Baccarin is coming back to the veteran crime drama for a guest star appearance in the third episode of season seven. She’ll reprise her role as sexy sociopath Erika Flynn, who previously manipulated and seduced Patrick Jane (Simon Baker).

Here’s the set-up: “Jane teams up with Erika Flynn in Beirut, Lebanon, where he and Lisbon have gone at the request of the CIA to take down an international weapons dealer. Erika has agreed to help Jane and the CIA in exchange for  a pardon on the murder charges she’s still facing and the chance to return to the U.S. But as always Erika has agendas of her own, one of which may, or may not, be inserting herself between Jane and Lisbon.”

The Mentalist will return to CBS in midseason.

Lifetime adapting 'The Red Tent' into miniseries starring Minnie Driver, Morena Baccarin, Rebecca Ferguson

Lifetime is the latest network to order Bible-themed programming, announcing a miniseries adaptation of Anita Diamant’s bestselling novel, The Red Tent.

The two-night event stars Minnie Driver (About a Boy), Morena Baccarin (Homeland), Rebecca Ferguson (The White Queen), Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment), Iain Glen (Game of Thrones), and Will Tudor (Game of Thrones) in the expanded saga of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob, who was only briefly mentioned in the Old Testament. Production begins this month in Morocco.

Ferguson plays Dinah, who spends her formative years in her tribe’s red tent, a women-only sanctuary where she learns about her family’s traditions and turmoil. The story recounts her father Jacob’s (Glen) courtship of her mothers Leah (Driver), Rachel (Baccarin), Zilpah, and Bilhah. The tale continues with Dinah’s own experiences with love and a devastating loss that changes the fate of her family.

Winger portrays Rebecca, Jacob’s mother; Tudor stars as Joseph, Dinah’s brother. READ FULL STORY
