The veteran drama has yet to get a premiere date.
January 9, 2016
There is some sad news for Person of Interest fans today, as word is out that the drama's upcoming season will probably be its last. Speaking on the show's future, executive producer J.J. Abrams said that he strongly suspects the story will conclude with Season 5, but noted that he believes there is a lot more story to tell were it to continue.
Observers have seen the writing on the wall for some time now, with CBS leaving Person of Interest off of this season's fall schedule and staying mum on its return. The show didn't even make the cut on the network's recently-released midseason slate, leaving many to question whether it would return at all.
A silver lining in all this is that it does appear Season 5 will make it to air sometime this year, though exactly when it anybody's guess. It's possibly more information will come out next week when CBS makes its presentation at TCA.

I sure hope Abramz et al continue this show; I'm a latecomer to the show due to the first season IMO started off slow. I hung in there seeing the potential and am justified. Like other shows slow to start, it too once moving the tempo up the pace and remained continuously as interesting as are the main characters.
This is a classical timely narrative of current times and problems associated with an omniscient machine, potentially benevolent having capabilities similar to IBM's Watson. The potential for good can't be overstated.
This show deserves to at least make the traditional 8 or 9 seasons that indicate a show worthy of earmarking this period in history. I do hope we see this show continue, it deserves it for relevance alone. Because it is a slow starter, exposure on Netflix will continue to grow the viewer base... to the producers hang in there.. it will continue to bear fruit.

One of the most intelligent shows on network TV. I hope it gets renewed, perhaps by Netflix. I thoroughly enjoy each episode, especially well developed characters....including Root, I as well love the serial context rather than wrapping up each episode in a neat bow. My big complaint with all these shows is how few episodes are made each season, and how short the seasons last. A network problem most likely, but stunted seasons and few episodes makes it a long wait until next season.

Not surprising they would cancel another Great Show. With the National IQ plummeting yearly, the main stream media is "forced?" to air pure pap in the form of propagandized sitcoms, reality shows (that are as far from reality as one can get), and politically correct talk shows.
History will show that America succumbed to the incessant Mentally Toxic Drivel passing for Entertainment and News in this, our "Brave New World".
May God Bless America, it is our only hope!

Person of Interest is a great show with lots of story and depth of characters that maybe got a little lost along the way, but has not completely gone off of the rails. I'm hoping that if this is the last season they get to concluded it in a manner that ends it with the dignity and respect it deserves.
Bruce - I disagree. Weekly plots are great for sit-coms and reality shows but do not usually invoke a lot of interest or loyalty in a show let alone inspire thought or conversation. Good examples of shows that tell an epic tale over episodes/seasons are: Game of Thrones, True Detective, Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Lost, House of Cards... heck, even Friends had a story line that carried on from episode to episode and further developed over seasons.

If you got something good like this you stick with it. There is too much garbage on TV as it is. We need shows like this with a good storyline and great actors playing their parts designed for them. I will take this show over any other except Elementary any day.

That's the problem with these shows. You take a story line that works so perfectly. Ex-CIA agent working with female cop and brilliant computer coder with a secret computer that are working together to save the "unimportant" lives. Everyone loves the show. Then you start throwing in stupid crap like a competing evil computer, killing off the female cop so she could go start a record company, you bring in a psycopath that is electronically connected to the computer via an implant, and wonder why the show starts going downhill. They've also dragged out this evil computer crap far too long. They should have found it within several episodes, destroyed it and went back to what was working.

Got too comic-bookey with Root. She and Shaw shout Girl Power and go kick everyone's ass. Was there anything Root wasn't good at? She could even make Shaw dig chicks.

When they killed off the Joss Carter character, that killed the show for me and alot of other viewers. It was an unnecessary plot twist. The show did not need that. I stopped watching. I am glad that it all worked out for Taraji P. Henson in the end, but I empathize with the cast and crew because they are exceptional.

I like the show, but now I think it time to wrap it up for good. The story can't go on forever. I hope the ending of Series finale go out with a big surprise. I believe that CBS will air in the summer time where other shows are on vacation.
