Fans of CBS’s Person of Interest have taken a proactive approach to protesting the reduced number of episodes ordered by the network for the show’s fifth season.
To ensure that the show will get the proper ending it deserves, fans have launched an online petition to call for more episodes. The petition is also urging CBS not to cancel the show after the fifth season and if it does, to help find a new home for the series.
The petition, which was started by Kaily Russel from California, was launched almost half a year ago and has now gathered close to 10,000 signatures.
It can be recalled that it took a while before CBS finally renewed the show for its fifth season, leaving fans wondering whether the show would get picked up after all. When the network finally announced the renewal, the doubts were further reinforced by the reduced episode order.
The past four seasons ranged from 22-23 episodes while Season 5 was only picked up for a 13 episode season.
While loyal viewers have expressed reservations over the network’s decision, show creator Jonathan Nolan has assured that whether or not Season 5 will be the series’ swan song, the show will get the ending it deserves, reported IGN.
“We’re going to make 13 kickass episodes, and drop the microphone. I can’t predict down the road but we’re very proud of the show and if it’s the last season, no one is going to be disappointed with the story we tell,” he said.
Meanwhile, in the latest teaser released by the show for the New York Comic Con, the Machine is seen to be having some facial recognition issues and pretty soon, the team is trading faces, all while trying to work out the bug and set up their latest mission, reported TVLine.
Person of Interest will have a midseason premiere at a yet unannounced release date.
