Eight more episodes have been added to the show's upcoming season.

It is being reported that CBS has topped up the episode count for Elementary's sixth season, ordering an additional eight episodes to bring its total up to 21. The good news comes ahead of its season premiere, which has not yet been scheduled by the network. The series was left off of the CBS fall schedule this season for the first time in its history, but today's episode increase should see it start sooner than later.
The veteran drama was first picked up for Season 6 back in May, receiving the late renewal after its name was originally left out of talks in March when there was more renewal activity. An overall reliable performer for CBS, the network-owned series has seen its ratings slide in recent years but is said to still do well financially thanks to its international appeal and off-network airing rights.
Elementary stars Jonny Lee Miller as the famed British detective, who takes residence in New York in order to deal with his addiction issues. While there, he teams with Dr. Joan Watson and the two work as police consultants solving crimes around the city.

This has been an uneven show the last few seasons. When the stories are good the show is great. But more often than not it puts me to sleep.
And there's nothing special about Sherlock Holmes as a detective anymore. The first couple seasons they went out of their way to show his special powers of deduction by connecting small details that most of us would miss. They don't do that anymore. Now Holmes just pulls a case's solution out of the air with no connection to the rest of the story. We might as well be watching "Jake and the Fatman" or some other routine detective show.

It's actually the only CBS show I watch, so it's good to see it is getting support.

A big fan of the show. If they would leave these shows alone they could maybe develop a following.They stop it doing football then show a few shows then stop it again. Start stop start stop. Leave the dad come show alone.

I watched the last half of an episode that I started watching many months ago. (I'm now only 13 episodes behind.) It was about an intentional virus put in the NY drinking supply. I couldn't remember the first half but it was easy to pick up on and the guilty party was a commissioner (?) that had been participating on police discussions about the crime. So it was pretty typical stuff ... but ... I agree with everything Suzanne just wrote about Elementary - I still enjoy it - I'm just way behind like most things. (Hi Suzanne!)

I stopped watching during season 3. Maybe I should pick it up again.

I still watch this show and it's the chemistry between the lead characters that matters. SO it's good to see it come back again.

I've been wondering about Elementary. In the spring, I was afraid it wouldn't even get renewed, and now it gets a top off before it starts to air. It isn't as good as it used to be, but I still enjoy it very much. Hopefully they get back on track. I am now just waiting for them to tell us when it comes back! My Tivo is ready and waiting.
