Person of Interest Season 3 Trailer Proves Show is Ahead of its Time
Amy Acker is set to join the Person of Interest cast as a series regular, it was revealed at Comic Con this weekend.
Acker took on the persona of the sinister and dangerous Root during the show’s second season, a role which gave Finch (Michael Emerson) a worthy nemesis and intellectual equal to work against as they fought each other for control of Harold’s Machine.
When we last saw Root, she was (securely?) locked away in a mental institution, following the spectacular derailment of her plans to set the Machine free. However, if you’ve been keeping up to date with the show, then you’ll know there may be more to the Machine than even Harold imagined, and big plans for Acker’s Root seem to be top of its agenda right now.
Person of Interest returns in a new time slot this fall, Tuesdays, from September 24 at 10/9c on CBS, and if you’ve ever doubted that the show is ahead of its time in terms of social commentary, then you could do worse than check out this new six and a half minute teaser trailer for season three.
