Person of Interest: Amy Acker Now Series Regular

Person of Interest Amy Acker RegularAmy Acker is planting roots at Person of Interest, where she has been promoted to series regular status for Season 3, it was revealed Saturday at Comic-Con.

Previously at the CBS Upfronts, it was announced that the drama had upgraded Sarah Shahi, who plays Agent Shaw, to series regular.

A Whedonverse alum, Acker recently told TVLine that she expected to return in some capacity — she just wasn’t sure to what degree.

“I was really happy that I got the phone call [from The Machine] at the end [of the finale], so I feel like they have to at least bring me back,” she said. “The great thing about science fiction shows is I really don’t know even what the character is going to be [at any moment]. I feel like I took such a crazy journey [as Root] this year, learning all this stuff I did in the finale about The Machine and Harold. And now that she’s had lots of therapy, we’ll see!”

POI returns Sept. 24, now airing Tuesdays at 10/9c. Check out this Comic-Con trailer, juxtaposing you’re-being-watched art with you’re-being-watched reality:
