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.
