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.
