Person of Interest Episode Order Reduced for Season 5

Person of Interest Season 5 Premiere Date

We’ll bet The Machine didn’t see this one coming.

Person of Interest, which was recently renewed for a fifth season, has received a partial, 13-episode order for its next go-round, our sister site Deadline reports.

The Mentalist, which wrapped earlier this year, went into its final season with 13 episodes, though a rep for Person of Interest has not yet commented on whether Season 5 will be the show’s last.

The May 5 season finale drew 8.2 million total viewers and a 1.1 demo rating, both series lows. Person of Interest was one of 15 CBS series renewed Monday, along with fellow bubble dramas Hawaii Five-0 and Elementary.
