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?
This is my favorite show and I am disappointed with its cancellation.
We love watching person of interest, we enjoy it very much.
I love all of the actions shows of spy genre they make this better show seen few years keep me going more thrills in it.
POI needs to stay alive its the good code and we need it… i need it.
I really love this show. My husband, mother and I all watch. Didn’t like the Samaritan story line which is probably killed the show. CBS forgot what made it popular in the first place and that was when the numbers came up and they worked to find out if the person was a victim or perpetrator. It was the best!!! CBS could have killed off Samaritan and it oiled have been fine. Great actors!!
Liked the series. Sorry it’s ending, especially on such a down note. Loved the cast.
POI is one of the best shows of its kind!
I LOVE Person if Interest – and for so many reasons…great cast, story evolvement and all the twists and turns…keep it going!
If CBS cancels Person Of Interest, I will stop watching any CBS shows!
If CBS cancels Person Of Interest, I will no longer watch any CBS shows. Period!
Love POI. DON’T CANCEL IT! It’s number isn’t up yet!
I have been a huge fan of POI since it’s beginning, and I am really hoping that it won’t be cancelled. I don’t have a lot of shows that I really look forward to watching. But this I enjoy. It’s my favorite. So, please don’t cancel it. There is a lot of us out here that all feel the same.
I hope someone picks it up. It was one of my favorite shows .
I enjoyed watching POI. I don’t understand why they are taking it off. The show is amazing. It seems as though they attempt to take off all the shows that are good for reality type and boring shows.
