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.

Good riddance. Liked this show a lot but something went wrong. Yes things changed after joss died but part of it for me was root was suddenly around all the time. I found myself rooting for her to get killed. If she does get killed pls let me know and I will go back to watching it. Think they just ran out of show. Lots of interesting ideas in this show about what a super computer can do. But wouldn't mind if Shaw was eliminated too. They main guy got boring crying about joss all the time. Only Harold was still fun to wathech. They should pull the plug on this pls.

The general television public is getting tired of long plots that from episode to episode, often thru an entire season (and sometimes even multiple seasons). Weekly plots that arise and resolve themselves neatly in a single episode has ALWAYS been the better recipe for television rather than serials. The problem with seasonal plots is that many people cannot watch every single episode, so naturally they will lose interest in the show if they fall behind several episodes, and can't kkep up what is going on.

Great show. In my top 3 shows I watch immediately after it airs. (Grimm and Walking Dead are the other 2). This show was making the odds for our heroes too hard to overcome and I was getting tired of the overarch of the show was taking away from the original formula of the weekly parts. However all good shows come to end, I will miss it, but I hope they won't have the deadly sin of any tv show and not complete the series or worst have an ending but a bad one, dare I say "Lost" anyone.

Seasons 1-3 were entertaining and was "must see TV" for me. However when they killed off Carter, it was down hill because they never recaptured the essence of the series.

I liked the show better in its 1st and 2nd and 3rd season the story lines were better, when Carter was there but I still like the show, it is still better then a lot of other shows that cbs is keeping on, the acting is good but I don't care for the two women they brought in, don't know there names, but I still enjoy watching it.

Love this show! Reese is the James Bond of television! However, the writers need to get back to POI roots. Carter was a big loss, but she can be replaced. There is always someone that reminds you of someone you lost. I suspect Shaw will return.CBS needs to get its act together. I hear there is rumor that Hawaii Five O is on the block another big mistake. Again writers need to step up. You can't write out key players and expect the show to maintain its rating.

I think the show's maintained a consistent quality over its run, but the departure of Taraji P. Henson (Detective Joss Carter) changed the formula of the show in a way that alienated some viewers, particularly those who were more in it for the crime drama. However, I think this is a more a case of any show being better with Taraji in it, rather than a shark jumping event.
The "conspiracy theories" were part of the show's plot from day one. (John Reese is ex-CIA, and Harold Finch is the alias for a guy who built an artificial intelligence that spies on everyone.) What I think PoI does well is that all of their conspiracies actually make sense and are integral to the plot. Little or nothing in the show is truly unexplained, save perhaps the central conceit of the show (an AI with access to every camera and electronic record on Earth). The show never feels like they dropped in a conspiracy episode just for the heck of it.
I had an idea for a spin-off show I called "Analog Interface", where the Machine secretly has second agent like Root who travels the globe carrying out instructions from the Machine that at first seem nonsensical until the underlying plan is revealed. Sort of like Strange Luck meets the Bourne Identity.
