CBS’ “Elementary” will come to an end with its upcoming seventh season, an individual with knowledge of the decision tells TheWrap.
No premiere date has been set for the Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu-led drama’s final batch of episodes, though an insider tells us the modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes and Watson is coming to a predetermined and natural conclusion with those final installments. All 13 episodes for the season have already been filmed.
Since its debut in 2012, “Elementary” has been shuffled around the CBS schedule and most recently aired its sixth season over the summer, wrapping up with a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49 and just over 3 million total viewers, though it aired its finale against the Primetime Emmys.
The drama, a modern retelling of Sherlock Holmes, stars Miller as Holmes and Liu as a gender-swapped version of Watson. Robert Doherty serves as showrunner for “Elementary” and executive produces with Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Bob Goodman, Jason Tracey and Robert Hewitt Wolfe. CBS Television Studios produces.
“Elementary” will be the second long-running series on CBS to conclude in 2019, joining sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” which will wrap after its 12th season in the spring.
