Tonight, as part of WGN’s new “Prime Crime” lineup, the network starts airing back-to-back episodes of the hit CBS series Person of Interest
as part of its binge-worthy 100 episode event. The series, along with Elementary
and Blue Bloods
, will give fans the opportunity to watch their favorite series from the beginning.
Yesterday, star Michael Emerson and executive producer/writer Greg Plageman talked to the media about the event.
First, the two talked to SciFi Vision about whether or not they would be satisfied with the story if next season is the last. According to Plageman, “I don’t know if I speak for Michael in that regard, but as a writer here from the very beginning with [Johnathan], one thing we felt very adamant about was that we would be able to tell a complete story on the show.
“This has always been a show where, you know, every season finale felt like it could have been a series finale. And this year will be no different.”
Emerson agreed, “I feel the same way. I feel like we kind of wrap things up every season. And so I think we’ll kind of continue in that same vein, maybe with a hint more finale feeling. But at the same time, I think probably the writers are going to leave it a little bit ambiguous, because we don’t know if it’s the end of POI
as we know it or not. So we kind of have to juggle that.”
