TV show description:
This crime drama follows a presumed dead former-CIA agent named John Reese (Jim Caviezel) who teams up with a mysterious billionaire, Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson), who’s also believed to be dead. Their goal is to prevent violent crimes by using technology and their own brand of vigilante justice.
Finch is a software genius who has invented a program that uses pattern recognition to identify people who are about to be involved in violent crimes — either the victim or the perpetrator. It was originally built for the government to prevent another 9/11 disaster but found that it was predicting less catastrophic, “irrelevant” crimes. Finch built a “backdoor” into the machine so that, before erasing the “irrelevant” data each night, Finch is sent the social security number of a person about to be involved in a serious crime.
Finch recruits Reese because of his special training in covert operations. Using their combined skills, resources and advanced surveillance technology, they work outside of the law to identify “persons of interest” and stop crimes before they occur.
Reese’s actions draw the attention of the NYPD — including homicide detectives Carter (Taraji P. Henson) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman). The latter is a corrupt cop and Reese blackmails him into being a source of information inside the department.
With infinite crimes to investigate, Reese and Finch find that locating the right person, with the right information, at the right time, can change everything.

Yes. Bring this show back
YES, BRING IT BACK. THIS WAS THE BEST ON TV
I can’t believe this show has been cancelled! Please consider continuing this show in the future! Best show on CBS!!!!!
Why is it that when CBS actually has a good show, they decide to cancel it? Though they did leave a good ending to pick up, if they ever decide to renew it for another season; The ending was all a simulation.
Bring it back please.
the show was terrific and interesting. watched every week.
CBS has kept worse shows … why cancel a good one like this?
love the show
Please bring this show back, I can think of other shows that should be cancelled.
why would you cancel a very important show that has such a large following??
Best show. I can’t believe it was cancelled. Please bring it back. The show has a great following and we all would be sooo excited if you would bring it back.
Out of all the TV Series that has been on any Station on TV this was the BEST DRAMA on TV. Was so disappointed when it didn’t return. CBS kept changing times and days on the viewers and I felt that was wrong. This Series could continue on even to this day. I really wish one of the other TV Stations would pick this GREAT DRAMA BACK UP. We have nothing to watch at all. Please listen to the viewers, we have to pay so much for our cable service than have nothing decent to watch on these dumb comedy’s… Read more »
