Last week, we reported that Person of Interest executive producer J.J. Abrams said the series will likely be cancelled after its upcoming fifth season. Now, CBS has stated that the decision to cancel or renew will not be made before season five premieres in the spring.
Person of Interest was renewed for a 13-episode fifth season back in May.
Speaking at the TCA winter press tour, CBS executive Glenn Geller said the creators of Person of Interest “have planned a terrific season,” and the network “hope[s] to get it on this spring.”
While CBS is keeping silent about plans for the series, Abrams said the creative team is planning the upcoming season as if it were its last:
“My guess is [Season 5] is the final season. The only heartbreak there is how much good story there was to come if it were to have continued. … But, obviously, things can be adjusted if [there’s] a miraculous [ratings] performance. But I think the idea is that this would be the finale.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Person of Interest? Do you think the next season will be its last?
