‘Person of Interest’ Season 5 Update: The Show Might Go On To A Different Network

Fans will be disappointed to know that the science fiction crime drama series, “Person of Interest” will end its run on CBS in season 5. However, there are rumors doing rounds about it being adapted by another network.

CrossMap reported that “Person of Interest” was only renewed for 13 episodes on CBS, which might indicate the idea that the production house is thinking of porting the crime drama to another network.


While speculations abound about the fate of the series, most people seemed to think that the show was moving towards a climax of some sort. Reports had started to surface about this being the last season of the show and fans were hoping to see the CIA Agent John Reese and Harold Finch for the last time before the show ended. However, new rumors confirmed the fact that the show will be ported to a new network and fans might get to see John Reese and Harold Finch again, but on a different network.

According to the Venture Capital Post, the series might get axed by CBS in the way the show, “The Mentalist” was axed. They picked up a few episodes of “The Mentalist” but they axed it after they were done showing them. But Jonathan Nolan, “Person of Interest” creator, predicted a different fate for the series. He was at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con and he made it clear that the 13 episodes will be “kickass” and “if they will be asked to extend the show, they will be ready with more stories for the show involving all of its characters.”

Co- showrunner Greg Plageman also indicated that the show might be shown on a different network if Season 5 won’t be the end of “Person of Interest,” Yibada reported.

Nolan added, “We’re very, very proud of the show and very excited with the show we’ve been making. If it’s the last season, no one is going to be disappointed with the story that we tell.”
