Person of Interest

After five seasons, Person of Interest is saying goodbye. 

CBS has canceled the crime drama ahead of its fifth season, which will premiere Tuesday, May 3 and conclude on Tuesday, June 21, with two episodes airing each week. 

"We're extremely excited to be able share this final season with the fans," executive producers Jonah Nolan and 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."

Executive producer J.J. Abrams told reporters back in January that while he didn't know for sure, he guessed that season five would be the final season, and promised that Nolan and Plageman had written season five with a series finale in mind. 

The series, which stars Michael Emerson, Jim Caviezel, and Amy Acker, is joined by The Good Wife and Mike & Molly, which are also airing their final seasons this spring. Check on the status of all your favorite shows with our Renewed or Canceled gallery below! 

Person of Interest's final season will premiere Tuesday, May 3 at 10 p.m. on CBS.
