Fans of CBS' "Person of Interest" might be starting to look at the network as a criminal suspect. CBS revealed a new schedule for March on Friday, which contained the premieres of new shows like "Rush Hour" and a new air date for "Elementary." However, the Season 5 premiere of "Person of Interest" was still nowhere to be found.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show was scheduled to have a midseason premiere for the first time in the show's history on the network. Now it appears the show could be headed for a summer premiere.
At Comic Con in July 2015, show creator Jonathan Nolan told The Hollywood Reporter they were approaching the fifth season as though it would be the shows last. CBS reduced the order from 22 episodes to 13, but Nolan said fans will be happy with the show whether it's the last season or will continue to move forward.
"We're very, very proud of the show and very excited with the show we've been making," Nolan said. "If it's the last season, no one is going to be disappointed with the story that we tell."
"Person of Interest" Season 4 wrapped up on May 5, 2015. In episode 22, Finch (Michael Emerson) and Root (Acker) were trying to save The Machine from rival Samaritan. Samaritan caused a series of power outages across the country in an attempt to destroy the Machine. When the season finale came to a close, a final power surge appeared to have left The Machine close to death, but Finch was able to save the briefcase before the team came face-to-face with Samaritan operatives.
No "Person of Interest" Season 5 premiere date has been announced. In the meantime, you can watch a Season 5 sneak peek video from the 2015 New York Comic Con below:
As far as other changes of CBS, the new schedule showed that "Elementary" would be moving from Thursday nights to Sundays on March 20 at 10 p.m. EST. "Rush Hour" is taking over the old "Elementary" time slot on Thursday, March 31 at 10 p.m. EST.
