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?
I hope to see more than just one more season of POI. It’s one of the most intelligent shows around. With some great writing and decision making, the show could continue for at least three more. I would be a very happy viewer.
I am a huge fan of this show. It would be amazing to see it through for many more seasons to come. The potential of this show is high, especially during this technology age. There’s also great chemistry. Oh, yes. Please bring back Shaw.
I love the show. It would have been nice if Tariji p. Henson wasn’t killed off the show but I understand she wanted to do different things but overall the cast is great and I hope the show isn’t cancelled. The show is brilliantly written.
It’s disappointing that cbs after 4 years treats this show like a new show just beginning. I’m personally sorry that they didn’t give this show a opportunity to improve its ratings especially since Netflix has it available for more viewers.
I just recently finished watching poi after seeing it on Netflix and it interested me and I completely fell in love and I now have, not only my three other sisters watching it but also my parents. The creators and writers of this show have done a great job such ingenious detail and devotion was put into it. To hear season five is only going to be 13 episodes and then it’s final season is ludicrous. Season four was like the climax everyone was waiting for Samaritan taking over, root and shaw relationship, shaw getting taken to the other side,… Read more »
I am such a fan, it would be awful if it was cancelled. it’s one of the good shows I always looked forward to seeing. Such excellent writing and a terrific cast, I hope that CBS doesn’t cancel it. Please do not cancel this show!!!!
i just finished watching the whole series and IT WAS AMAZING. it had the perfect amount of everything i loved about movies and shows. After watching the last episode of season 4, i can not wait for spring to came around. i really hope season 5 is not the final season. i know it can get even more awesome. we need more shows like it. please DO NOT END THIS SHOW!!!!
I love Person of Interest, I have watched the show from the beginning and have really loved and hated the way characters have evolved and some passed on. The show is truly a great work and I hope J.J. Abrams and his team continue to grow the characters and entertain the masses.
I hope it’s not cancelled. It is written well. Great actors etc
I’m reminded of the last season of Fringe. A great show that went into an entirely different direction. Not a good idea.
If that’s the case, they need to go back to the original premise of HELPING PEOPLE out of tight spots. All the computer shows were way too boring for a lot of us…. who really cared about that?
I’m glad it’s finally over. Let’s face it with the exception of two or three episodes season 4 was a complete disappointment. And the fact that they keep focusing only on Finch’s drama (and sometimes on Reese’s) don’t do this show any favor. They have 5 characters and write only for 3-4 of them (Finch Reese Shaw and Fusco). For most of the time the writers pretend that Root doesn’t exist. It’s not fair.
I hope it keeps going Is Sameer going to be rescued?
I love the show, there isn’t anything else like it on tv. Definitely unique with excellent writing and a terrific cast i hope that CBS doesnt cancel it. I know i’ll be watching come spring!
Great show! Terrific cast! I hope that it’s not the final season….. Bill
We look forward to each new episode of POI… we love it…! I hope that it continues…. so many good shows we started watching that were binned…. its frustrating just getting into a series and its binned…. drives us teeth gnashing nuts! I don’t know who makes these decisions…. whoever they are they need replacing! Why bin good shows and replace them with rubbishy shows…. do they think the public are a lot of brainless airheads that can’t appreciate a good show? That is what it appears to me that they think like….. 🙁
