‘Person of Interest’ Season 5 May Not Be the Show’s Last if Fan Petition Can Convince Netflix to Pick Up the Series for Season 6!

She added however that her character Root will continue to struggle with choosing between Shaw and the Machine. She explained that both are priorities to Root.

She recalled that at the end of last season, Root had to decide that if she did not do everything to save the Machine, there is also no purpose on saving Shaw.

Acker said that if indeed “Person of Interest” is on its final season, she is very optimistic that the showrunner will give a happily ever after ending to Root and Shaw. In fact, she hopes to see Root, the Machine, and Shaw live together with Bear and the twins.

“Person of Interest” stars Jim Caviezel as John Reese, a former CIA agent who was presumed dead. He is a former Green Beret / Delta Force operator and he has been burnt out and has since begun living as a vagrant in New York City, after the death of a woman he loved.

He was approached by a mysterious billionaire software genius named Harold Finch, played by Michael Emerson, who is also living under an assumed identity.

Finch tells Reese that after September 11, 2001, he built a computer system for the government that uses information gleaned from omnipresent surveillance to predict future terrorist attacks. However, he, later on, discovered that the computer was predicting ordinary crimes as well.

    Please let Netflix pick up the POI show. I will then get Netflix to watch the show.

  • John D,

    Who ever picks POI up will have a HUGE fan base, which is also good for the sponsors $$. CBS is making a grave mistake and we will be glade to let the current sponsors know. This is coming from a guy who doesn’t watch much TV except when POI is on and I also have all 4 seasons on dvd.

    CBS is making such a bad judgement call to end this show – the first show in 20 years to garner support from so many fans – to put in its place, what? Another stupid, pointless reality show or some drama that will be cancelled after 5 episodes?? The only reason I watch CBS is to see this show, so they’re going to lose (another) viewer when POI ends. I’ll follow the show, not the network.

    If fans, like myself, enjoy and faithfully watch the show, Person Of Interest, why would CBS end it? There is such support for the show, and it sure beats other less interesting venues, like scripted reality shows and such. It is one of the most interestingly crafted ideas a nd story lines, that takes viewers away from the hum-drum offerings of other networks. Remember when fan uproars brought back Star Trek, Cagney & Lacy etc. Why would the CBS network jeopardize their network’s popularity by cancelling a show that has such a large following and fan base. The cast ensemble worked so harmoniously to keep us viewers so enthralled and interested in the story, that I would absolutely change anything in my schedule that might cause me to miss an episode. If CBS won’t renew it further, and it is picked up elsewhere, that’s where you’ll find me glued to my screen so I don’t miss one second of any future performance.
