Production for season 7 has finished and so goes the future of Elementary with it.
CBS has chosen to end the procedural after seven seasons in summer 2019. The final season does not yet have a final premiere date set but expect a bit of buzz to be created for the farewell season.
Deadline reports on the cancellation:
The decision comes as the crime drama procedural, created by Rob Doherty and starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, wrapped production Friday on Season 7 with the final scene in the finale the last one to film.
I hear that when the network renewed Elementary for a seventh season in May less than two weeks into its Season 6 run, a decision was made that it would be the series’ final chapter.
“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,” CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl said.
The 7th and ultimate season will consist of 13 episodes. Per sources, there are no plans to revive Elementary on any other networks.
