RELATED: "Person of Interest" showrunners tease Season 4
Plageman and his fellow showrunner Jonathan Nolan have already wrapped the Season 4 premiere, and Plageman jokes that "we've blown up a lot of things already." The new season will pick up about four to six weeks after the events of the Season 3 finale, but Plageman thinks viewers will be surprised by how easily some of the "Person of Interest" characters fit into this new world order.
"Our guys, they've all sort of fallen into a different life, a life that's predicated on survival," he says. "I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. There's a silver lining to it among that Orwellian blanket that they're living under. I think they'll all find that they're good at different things."
Both Plageman and Nolan tell Zap2it that Shaw has the worst trouble fitting into this new world. "She's still not crazy about the knees," Nolan says. "She's got much more significant problems this season. They're way beyond which part of the body to shoot at." Meanwhile, Root also has a "complicated" transition to the dystopian society, Nolan teases.
"Person of Interest" Season 4 premieres Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
