Person of Interest Will Air This Spring, CBS Boss Promises

Person of Interest Premiere Date

“We will air Person of Interest this spring,” new CBS president Glenn Geller promised on Tuesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, fending off the suggestion that the drama might be saved for the off-season. “It won’t be held for the summer.”

For your reference, the final day of spring is Sunday, June 19.

As for the million-dollar question, Geller would not confirm talk — most recently from series EP J.J. Abrams — that the 13-episode Season 5 will be the show’s farewell run.

“We haven’t aired the show yet, and I’m not sure,” he said. “I think [the Season 5 finale] can function as both a season and series finale. The fans will be very satisfied. [Showrunners] Greg [Plageman] and Jonah [Nolan] have made a very compelling arc — big, big surprises this season.”
