Even though CBS' crime-drama series "Person of Interest" concluded with the fifth season, fans are still looking forward to watch more episodes of their favourite show as they are hoping that the series will be picked up by another network after the final season finished its run on CBS.

The devoted fans of "Person of Interest" had issued an online petition, appealing any other network to pick up the show. However, the petition still doesn't have enough signatures to initiate the project.

In the meantime, Cinema Blend has reported that the show's creator Jonathan Nolan and his team of writers intentionally wrote a cliffhanger for Season 5 finale so that they can leave the options open for a possible series or spin-off.

In the last season of "Person of Interest," the location of the operation was changed in order to protect the life of the president. This has left possibilities of a new sequel in development or a potential spin-off.

Recent rumour regarding the possible plot of the upcoming season suggests that the Machine will be installed in some other part of the world instead of New York and that can start a new chain of events, leading to the episodes of the further season.

All 5 seasons of "Person of Interest" were praised by both the fans and the critics. Hence, it came as a shock to the viewers when the show was confirmed to be concluded after Season 5.

In order to bring back the show, Kally Russell created a petition on to appeal for more seasons or a spin-off series. However, the petition still needs 180 signatures in order to complete the required 50,000 names so that any other network can consider initiating the project and starting the development of Season 6.

The petition has been sent to other prominent networks like Netflix, WGN, Amazon, NBC and Fox. Though none of them have confirmed it yet, fans are hoping the show will be green-signalled soon.
