Actress Morena Baccarin, most recently known for her role in the ABC remake of V but also known for her role in the cult favorite Firefly, will return to the CBS drama THE MENTALIST, reprising her role of professional matchmaker Erica Flynn.

This character, according to TV Line, was last seen heading to jail after being arrested for her complicity in a murder. Executive producer Bruno Heller has not revealed how her character will come back, but did share this: (her appearance) “marks the return of one of the few people who can mess with Jane’s mind”.

Baccarin will next be seen in the much anticipated new Showtime thriller Homeland that debuts October 2 at 10/9c. The series stars Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patinkin in the series about MIA Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Lewis) who returns home to a hero’s welcome after eight years in enemy confinement; but CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Danes) isn’t buying his story. She believes that Brody has been turned and is now working for Al Qaeda. Baccarin will appear as the wife of the returning “hero”.

The Mentalist is back for its 4th season on CBS with its next new episode airing tomorrow night September 29 at 10/9c.
