Elementary

Story by Jack Foley

SHERLOCK Holmes drama Elementary is to end after its forthcoming seventh season.

The series completed production on its final run of 13 episodes earlier this month (December) and will bring Elementary to its natural end, according to CBS.

The show starred Jonny Lee Miller as a modern-day Sherlock Holmes operating in New York City, with Lucy Liu as his partner Watson.

By the time it reaches its conclusion, the series will have clocked up 154 episodes.

A premiere date for season seven has yet to be determined.

Commenting on the decision, CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl said: “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.”

Executive producer Carl Beverly added: “[Creator] Rob Doherty set out to tell a story, and it feels like he has accomplished what he had set out to do. The actors, the crew and the staff feel that way, and we feel that. So, we are grateful and celebrating what we had and looking forward to the future.”

According to Deadline, the final season will allow Doherty and his creative team to bring Holmes back to NYC from London (where season six left him) for one final round of mysteries to solve. It will also feature the great Holmes foe, Odin Reichenbach,, to be played by James Frain. The character first will appear in Episode 5.

Elementary airs on Sky in the UK.
