Between the fifth and sixth season of the Sherlock Holmes show Elementary, there was a near year-long hiatus on it’s run on CBS. The fifth season ended on May 21, 2017 and the sixth season didn’t premiere till April 30, 2018. Clearly the show was not just going about as normal with the seventh season not even set to premiere till some time in 2019. And now it’s confirmed that that upcoming season will be the final season of the show that took Holmes and brought him to New York. CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl spoke the following today:
A lot of parties came together and talked about their positions on the show — both in terms of business and in terms of creative — and we all decided that this was an opportune time to say goodbye to a show that has been very, very good to us.
The show of course has nothing to be ashamed of as it currently has 141 episodes under it’s belt. So by the end of season 7, audiences will surely get the send-off they hope for. Stay tuned!
