A new trailer has been released for the upcoming final season of CBS’ Person of Interest. IGN revealed the exclusive trailer that showcases what is to come for the series’ 13-episode final. Season.
The trailer plays heavily into the fact that it is the final season and if its any indication, Season 5 will show no mercy as the POI team is pushed to the limit as they try to fight against the AI Samaritan, all the while rebuilding the Machine and saving the lives of other innocents.
One aspect sure to get fans excited is just how much Sameen Shaw, played by Sarah Shahi, is in this trailer. Shahi left the show halfway through Season 4 due to her pregnancy with the fate of her character left ambiguous after a firefight. It was confirmed she would be back for Season 5, but it wasn’t known just how much of the final season she would be in as she was still on maternity leave when they started filming.
Produced by Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams, Person of Interest stars Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson and Amy Acker as Mr. Reese, Mr. Finch and Root with the help of an AI known only as The Machine as they take on shadowy government organizations and a rival AI named Samaritan as it attempts to place its own order on the world. The final season will premiere Tuesday, May 3 and then will show every Monday and Tuesday after that until its conclusion.
