Since ordering the pilot, CBS has been very vocal about wanting to cast a diverse actress in the lead role, with network president Glenn Geller saying the star would not be Caucasian and the search would be open to all other ethnicities.

Born in Texas, Shahi is from Iranian, Persian and Spanish ancestry.

The CBS series will premiere it’s final 13-episode run on Tuesday, May 3, at 10 p.m. Then, starting the next week, the show will run twice weekly — Mondays and Tuesdays, both at 10 p.m. Then, Season 5 — and the show as a whole — will come to an end on Tuesday, June 21, at 10 p.m. RELATED: ‘Person of Interest’s’ fifth season is probably its last As for what producers have in store for the final season, the biggest news is the return of Sarah Shahi as Sameen Shaw.

After taking maternity leave from the show during Season 4, Shahi returns to the show with “great gusto,” according to CBS president Glenn Geller.

Viewers want to see more from Reese, Finch, Root, Sameen and the rest of the characters of "Person of Interest." But since Reese and Root who are two of the major characters are already killed in the finale episode of "Person of Interest" season 5, it is already impossible to continue the original story.

Meanwhile, reports about a spinoff series have been going around the web after "Person of Interest" concluded last June.

“Person of Interest” Season 5 finally has a premiere and finale date.

Unfortunately for those who love the show, it will also serve as the final season.

Speculations state that Sarah Shahi and Amy Acker will star the series.
