CBS has announced that its modern Sherlock Holmes reimagining Elementary is set to come to an end after its upcoming seventh season.
The series launched in 2012, and stars Jonny Lee Miller as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master detective along with Lucy Lui as his partner Dr. Joan Watson, with the two investigating cases in New York City alongside the NYPD.
“Just wanted to say what an incredible honor it was to work on this show,” wrote executive producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe on Twitter. “From creator Rob Doherty and his partner-in-crime Carl Beverly, to my fellow writers, our amazing cast and crew, our top notch editors, Elementary was a 1st class group in every way. Working on Elementary was a career highlight and I’m insufferably proud of what we’ve achieved. Doyle wrote 60 Holmes mysteries, we did 154. Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu have played Holmes and Watson on screen more than any pair in history. Holmes & Watson are eternal. They’ll always be out there, somewhere, on stage, screen, or page, solving mysteries and depending on each other. We gave them voice for a time, and now we move on, leaving them waiting for the next interpretation, the next mystery. Adieu.”
As yet, there’s no word on an official premiere date for the seventh and final season of Elementary, although Wolfe has suggested that it is likely to air in late spring or early summer 2019.
