Sad news to report from the US – Elementary, the Sherlock Holmes reimagination, has been cancelled by its home network, CBS. It’s had its ups and downs but, for the most part Elementary was a solid, enjoyable and pretty consistent watch.
TV Line quoted CBS Entertainment President, Kelly Kahl:
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.
[Series 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 cast feel that way, and we feel that. So are grateful and celebrating what we had and looking forward to the future.
The series will end with the forthcoming seventh series.
