Yes! CBS announced on October 25 (2011) that POI is renewed! So this season will have a total of 22 episodes.
POI is near 14 million views! And stayed nice and strong for the first 10 episodes. Not surprisingly of course, considering how well written this show is. POI was staying between 11-13 million views, it raises hope for this show.
Personally, I think this show rocks.
It's not like all the other crime shows.
And the characters are just perfect.
I'm quite happy that they put more of Dect. Carter.
They showed she's not just another cop, but a mom, and I know we'll be seeing more of her.
It is still unannounced when POI will return.
My guess would be summer time. Because they have to keep filming.
But it's possible it could return in February.
Whenever it should return, I will be waiting with anticipation on what POI will bring.
