In the season 5 finale titled "return 0" of CBS' science-fiction series "Person of Interest," the Samaritan was finally destroyed and the Machine was safe.
However, the fans, eagerly looking forward to the next season of the series, might be disappointed to know that there won't be another season, according to recent reports.
As reported by Yibada, the show has no plans to continue with the series and hence Season 6 won't be happening. However, Michael Emerson, who portrays the character of Harold Finch in the series, talked about whether he will return or not, given that if the show makes a comeback.
"If they said to me, 'We want Person of Interest to keep going but we're only going to do 10 or 12 [episodes],' I'd say, 'Sign me up.' But I can't do 22 again. I think people always expect me to be broken up about things coming to an end, but we were so tired in December, I couldn't even have imagined coming back after the new year and shooting more," Emerson said.
In Season 5 finale, fans witnessed a thrilling conclusion to Samaritan and the Machine's fate as Ice-9 virus engulfed the whole city. Talking with Entertainment Weekly, creator Jonathan Nolan and executive producer Greg Plageman talked about the finale of the show.
Nolan had warned that fans might be angry with season finale as the "heroes will not make it out of this one intact." That's exactly what happened in the last episode of Season 5.
Nolan also said that he was satisfied and proud with the episodes and how the story had shaped through all the previous seasons.
"I'm very satisfied and proud of these episodes in this season, and we ended the show the way we always conceived of ending the show," Nolan said.
