'Person Of Interest' To End After 5 Seasons

Today CBS confirmed the news that fans of the series Person of Interest had been dreading.

The network announced today that the upcoming fifth season of the series would be its last season.

The series stared off extremely well for the network when it premiered in September 2011 and became a solid performer on Thursday nights. After only two seasons, the series was moved to Tuesday nights and while it mostly held its audience, the numbers did began to dip.

Another tell-tale sign for the end of the series was its reduced, 13-episode order for the fifth season.

“We’re extremely excited to be able share this final season with the fans,” creator/executive producer Jonah Nolan and executive producer Greg Plageman said in a statement.

“We’re eternally grateful to our amazing cast and crew, as well as our partners at the studio and network. Most of all, we want to thank the show’s fans — the best fans in the world. This subversive little paranoia-inducing cyberpunk-thriller is for you and would not have been possible without your support. As life has come to imitate Person of Interest, it’s been our great privilege to work on the show for the past five seasons. We can’t wait for you to experience this thrilling and final chapter.”
