'Person of Interest' not on CBS' fall 2015 schedule: Could Season 5 be its last?

"Person of Interest" isn't getting its usual Tuesday night 10 p.m. ET/PT timelot on CBS' fall 2015-16 schedule. Instead, it's being held for later in the season -- and might be poised to sing its swan song.CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler told reporters Wednesday (May 13) that the network hasn't yet determined the order -- it's rumored to be 13 episodes -- or whether or not Season 5 will be the show's last."We're having those conversations with the team right now," she says. "Just process-wise, before we make any pickups of returning shows, we sit down and have these really great creative meetings with producers and we talk about not only what the next season is going to look like, but are there any character changes, what are the story arcs, etc. And Jonah Nolan and Greg Plageman came in and pitched really terrific ideas for the new season.RELATED: CBS fall 2015 night by night...
