Sarah Shahi is returning to the tv show "Person of Interest" and this news has increased interest in the show which to some fans seemed to have lost some energy and appeal after she left to give birth to twins for husband Steve Howey of "Shameless".
It is apparent to some fans that the producers of the show also realized the impact her absence had on the show because Executive producer Greg Plageman informed Tv.com that her character's return will be a permanent return as fans will see her early in the season and from that point on she will be a permanent fixture on the show.
Sarah Shahi's portrayal of Sameen Shaw as the tough, sexy ex-assassin was a perfect match for Amy Acker's "Root" character as they smouldering sexual tension captivated fans and was arguably the greatest viewer draw for fans.
Her absence left an 'energy' void for some fans that the show seemed unable to fill and in the process enhanced her value to the show. The news of her return has fans eagerly anticipating seeing her once again play the sexy role of Sameen Shaw and has some fans wondering if her return is to not only help the show return to its status as one of the most talked about shows on social media and keep it on the air beyond the fall season.
Unfortunately for "Person of Interest" fans there have been rumours surrounding the show suggesting that this upcoming seasons could be the last season but some entertainment observers suspect that Sarah Shahi's presence could help make the show so popular that CBS will rethink this option.
Sometimes it is important for an actor to be missed from a show so that not only fellow actors but fans and directors associated with the show can appreciate their absence and an added benefit is it adds to the actor's value as illustrated by the excited response from fans to the news that Sarah Shahi is returning to "Person of Interest".
