Person of Interest Cancelled Shaw Returns

Person of Interest Final Season Photos: Shaw's Return, Shot Machine and More

With CBS’ Person of Interest unleashing Season 5 — aka its farewell run — on Tuesday, May 3 at 10/9c, we’ve rounded up the latest batch of photos, from four of the first five episodes.

And because the scheduling of the swan song is sorta wacky (airing twice a week, on Tuesdays and Mondays), I’ve denoted the airdate and episode title for each. Because why? Because #TVLineCares.

As first reported by TVLine what feels like a million years ago (but was actually just last August!), Sarah Shahi rejoined Team Machine following her real-life maternity leave, though Finch & Friends will be left to wonder if the presumed-dead Shaw has her wits about her/is to be trusted, following her time under Samaritan’s watch.

I started my final-season binge this morning, and this much I can share: The premiere opens with a glimpse at the end of the team’s story, as narrated by one of its members, before rewinding to not long after they dodged death in the Season 4 finale, with The Machine stuffed into a briefcase. (As you can see in one of the premiere photos, She takes a few bullets during a season-opening melee, which will crunch the clock even harder for the fast-scrambling good guys.)
