‘Person Of Interest’ Won’t Return For Season 6, But The Cast Will Still Be Easy To Find

The hardest part of a series finale is letting go of the fictional friends that you may have made along the way. If we're lucky, however, the actors who played those characters will pop up in other projects. In that spirit, since Person of Interest won't return, here is what the cast is doing next, for fans who don't want to let go yet.

The CBS series came to an end on Tuesday, but thankfully, most of the cast is full of established favorites — especially when it comes to science fiction and genre television. You won't be missing anyone for a while. The only actor who doesn't have any recent/immediate projects coming up is Jim Caviezel, who you can always revisit in The Thin Red Line. The Passion of the Christ, or The Count of Monte Cristo.

On that note, you can always rewatch Michael Emerson on Lost, Amy Acker in Angel, or Sarah Shahi in Life and The L Word if you're looking for your next Netflix marathon. Enrico Colantoni will always be a Galaxy Quest alien and Veronica Mars' dad to me. Plus, if you're not already watching Taraji P. Henson on Empire, I don't know what to tell you. Get on that! Here are some other places to find Person of Interest cast in the coming months. Let the healing process begin.

Taraji P. Henson


Besides playing Cookie on Empire, Henson is starring with Octavia Spencer and Aldis Hodge in the 2017 NASA film Hidden Figures.

Amy Acker


Always a favorite with Joss Whedon fans, she's in Alan Tudyk's series Con Man as well as When Jack Went Glamping and The Energy Specialist, two upcoming films.

Sarah Shahi


Well, Shahi was cast as Nancy Drew in CBS's Drew, but that pilot was unfortunately not picked up to series. Hopefully, something equally awesome will come along — or we'll get to see that pilot in some form or fashion.

Michael Emerson


It's not an acting role per se, but you can catch Emerson's infamous voice narrating the PBS documentary The Mystery of Matter: Search For The Elements. I can think of few people I'd rather have explain science to me, honestly.

Kevin Chapman

The actor who played Lionel can be seen in the upcoming movie Good Kids as well as the series A.P.B. — which is about what happens when a tech billionaire buys and tries to run a police precinct. I'm sold!

Enrico Colantoni

Finally, while Carl wasn't a huge part of Person of Interest, you can see him now on Powers and Death's Door. Nobody from Person of Interest is going far away. That's the silver lining to any series ending. It just means more opportunities for your favorites to come.
