The world on “Person of Interest” has certainly changed now that the Samaritan Al surveillance program has exerted its reign over the country, which was highlighted in the new sneak peek for the upcoming season 4, unveiled Saturday at Comic-Con ahead of the show’s panel.
Warner Bros. released the video online as well, which combines footage from season three and the upcoming season and clocks in at about five minutes. Reese, Finch, Shaw and Root have been forced into hiding with Samaritan on in full force and onto them, and they assume the identities of average citizens to hide in plain sight.
Showing that even the Machine has a sense of humor, Root and Shaw have become cosmetics counter girls in their new roles, and Reese appears to be a cop. “Mad Men” actress Cara Buono has joined as a mystery woman and makes her first appearance in the teaser, along with Fred Weller.
Root gets intense as she warns Harold that there is a war, so he has to “pick a side.” “Young Men Dead” by The Black Angels provides the soundtrack to the video of the CBS drama, providing an eerie tone.
“Imagine if the world had utterly changed and no one noticed a thing.”
“Person of Interest” season four premieres Tuesday, Sept. 23.
