About Season 6
On March 16, 2016, CBS has announced a sad news. Their sci-fi crime drama “Person Of Interest” comes to an end June 21, 2016. Unfortunately, the fifth season of the drama would be its last. It’s worth mentioning that all the signs had been pointing to the forthcoming conclusion of the drama series. So, for instance, the fifth season has been reduced up to thirteen episodes. All in all, “Person Of Interest” Season 6 won’t take place. The TV series is cancelled without any chances for Season 6.
As for our opinion, we consider this decision quite weird at least. The sci-fi drama has been praised by critics and viewers. Besides, it keeps quite steady television ratings. Meanwhile, the CBS leadership considered that “Person of Interest” illustrates weak ratings, that are not appropriate for such a giant television network as CBS.
