Michael Emerson has confirmed the CBS cancellation of Person of Interest after Season 5.
Speaking at New York Comic-Con, the actor said the upcoming 13-episode fifth season will indeed be the last on CBS, though, as previously noted, he holds out hope that another outlet will resurrect the show for Season 6.
It had been hoped that an upturn in ratings, spurred in part by the show’s recent release on Netflix, could persuade the CBS powers that be to keep POI for Season 6.
However, judging by Emerson’s comments, minds have already been made up – though as you might expect, CBS has yet to make an official announcement.
Of course, things can change and given that Season 5 is likely to leave the story open to some extent, there’s still the possibility that Netflix or another platform could save the day. Stay tuned…
