Most of all, we want to thank the show’s fans — the best fans in the world.”

“This subversive little paranoia-inducing cyberpunk-thriller is for you and would not have been possible without your support,” they continued. “As life has come to imitate ‘Person of Interest,’ it’s been our great privilege to work on the show for the past five seasons. We can’t wait for you to experience this thrilling and final chapter.”

The series will return on May 3, airing two episodes per week on Mondays and Tuesdays in subsequent weeks. The final episode will air on June 21. “Person of Interest” first began airing in 2011.

“Person of Interest” was created by Nolan, who executive produces alongside Plageman, JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk. Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson star. “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson previously appeared on the show as Joss Carter.
