Whedonites Rejoice: Amy Acker Promoted to Series Regular on Person of Interest

Joss Whedon favorite Amy Acker upped to series regular on 'Person of Interest'

It looks like the Whedonverse truly is the center of Comic-Con 2013: At the panel for CBS’ Person of Interest, it was revealed that Joss regular Amy Acker has been promoted to series regular for season 3.

Acker most recently starred in Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing and first teamed with the director in Angel. Now she can get a little more comfortable as cyber-hacker Root on Person of Interest when the show returns September 24 at its new day and time: Tuesdays at 10 p.m.

Also, here's an awesome (and terrifying) video especially made for Comic Con; it combines footage from the show and actual news footage about PRISM. You won't be able to tell which is which:

Y'all better be watching this show. Whedonites, you can catch up over the summer. Amy has appeared on both Season 1 and Season 2 and her character is amazing. As is the entire show. Also, Sarah Shahi was previously promoted to series regular as well so now we have 3 awesome men and 3 awesome women on the show. HELL. YES.
