  1. Rochelle Demo: 18-49 says

    I am glad to know that my favorite show is going to be continuing for next season! It is such a refreshing show! It is original, suspenseful, well written, great characters and a real treat! POI is one of only four shows I choose to watch a week (the rest are lame), so I would totally upset to lose this quality show. I can’t wait to see what next season brings!

    Person of Interest is a fabulous show. I love the actors, the writing and everything about it including the music used on the show. Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson are fantastic and have great chemistry together on screen. Renew, Renew.
