As Person of Interest enters the home stretch of its fourth season — no word yet on a Season 5, but show creator Jonathan Nolan says, “We’re feeling very, very confident about continuing to tell our story” — the main cast along with Nolan and executive producer Greg Plageman gathered for a panel at the Paley Center in New York. Watch the full panel above, and read on for highlights.

* Plageman promised “shocks and surprises” for the finale and Nolan says he had to make half a dozen of “those calls” — that is, the call telling a cast member that his or her character had been killed off. But, adds Nolan, “Everyone lives forever in flashbacks,” as evidenced by Taraji P. Henson’s moving return in this week’s episode.

* When Sarah Shahi is ready to return (she recently left the show to have twins), Nolan says, “We have a killer story for her just as soon as she’s back to work.”

* The PoI shooting schedule is one of the most grueling in television. But star Jim Caviezel believes, “You gotta suffer for your work,” and as long as the show is cinema quality, he doesn’t mind.

* Not everybody feels the same. The show shoots in New York, but the writers are in L.A., so they don’t have to put up with the often-freezing weather. “I think in Season 5, we should make you write the episodes in a cooler!” joked Caviezel’s co-star Kevin Chapman.

Person of Interest airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on CBS.

Closer Weekly Magazine has an article about Michael Emerson and Carrie Preston. Here’s a teaser:

Around the time that Michael Emerson and Carrie Preston celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in 2008, they landed at the perfect LA home that is as stylishly offbeat as their Emmy-winning TV performances.

“What appears to be a Mexican-Moroccan bungalow reveals itself to be a gracious desert home as you move through it toward the seclusion of the backyard,” Michael shares with ‘Closer.’ “Umm, yeah, what Michael said,” Carrie adds with a laugh.

Their witty rapport is just what you’d expect from Michael, 60, who plays a quirky, brilliant crime fighting billionaire on ‘Person of Interest,’ and Carrie, 47, who plays a quirky, brilliant criminal attorney on ‘The Good Wife,’ both on CBS.

And with their busy bicoastal life, the three-bedroom home was the perfect fit. “We aren’t in LA full time, so we wanted a place we could move right into without a lot of work,” says Michael, who also shares a Manhattan apartment with Carrie and their rescue Maltipoo, Chumley.

The biggest construction work they’ve done was rebuilding the chimney. Michael’s past experience as a scenery designer and illustrator is evident in the home’s deep colors and a decor that highlights a taste for the exotic.

“I’d say we have a folk-world, eclectic style that’s full of character and artistry,” Carrie shares, and Michael agrees. “We are attracted to warm-colored things from faraway lands — handicrafts and rugs, carved or painted furniture that’s more antique than modern.”

DarkUFO and SpoilerTV (both maned by the same person) posted an interesting article about a future project for Michael Emerson. I don’t know whether the article was a hoax and was published as an April Fool’s joke (it was published on April 1, 2015) or it was the real deal. If it is the real deal, I am more than happy. I’m megahappy. I’d love to see the LOST characters back together again. So, for your information, here’s the article:

ABC has put in development a spinoff of the landmark series Lost, which ended some 4 years ago. The spinoff, tentatively titled “Lost: Dr. Linus”, is written/executive produced by Elizabeth Sarnoff and directed by veteran Lost director Jack Bender.

The series, which will focus on the adventures of Dr. Linus in the flash-sideways timeline of the final season, is eyeing 8 series regulars. Michael Emerson will lead the ensemble cast, with Tania Raymonde (Alex Rousseau) Daniel Roebuck (Dr. Leslie Artz) and William Atherton (Principal Don Reynolds) also returning. Four new characters have yet to be cast, while former Lost actors Terry O’Quinn, Henry Ian Cusick and Mira Furlan could potentially recur.

I hear the series, which is being eyed for the 2016-17 TV season, will have 15 or 16 episodes per season. That number is in line with that of the latter seasons of Lost, which was a demand from the show’s developers. It comes as no surprise since both worked on the series’ third season, which had 23 episodes and which many fans and critics considered to be the worst season of the show. Therefore, it is only logical that the spinoff will have shorter seasons. All episodes are rumored to have the standard 42-minute length, but supersized finales, which Lost frequently used, are considered likely.

With Emerson currently starring in the CBS series Person of Interest, the project had to be pushed back even though the producers came up with the idea several years ago. But with Person of Interest’s ratings waning, sources close to the series say its all-but guaranteed fifth season is considered to be the last. Should the series continue to run after that, Emerson’s character might be written off the show but it’s far too early to speculate on that.

Of course, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof never denied that there will not be a revival of the LOST revival. Two years after the finale of LOST, Lindelof was quoted by Digital spy saying that “he believed that LOST would return in some form but that he had no plans to contribute.” Lindelof stated that he and his team told their story and had no desire to “go back.,” but that did not mean that the story could not be retold by another team, or that another team could tell the story of other survivors or other aspects of the the famous surviviro’s lives. In fact, according to Lindelof, Disney owns the franchise and there are great financial possibilities with the franchise, just as StarTrek was a financial gold mine. I, personally, would love to see another angle of the survivor’s story.
