The crime drama extends its impressive run.
May 12, 2018
CBS announced today that Elementary has been renewed for a seventh season. The good news comes just two episodes into the crime drama's current season, which this year was moved to the network's mid-season schedule for the first time.
The hour-long procedural has been an overall reliable performer for CBS over the course of its time on the air, though ratings have taken a hit in recent years. However, the fact that the network owns the series and that it does well internationally likely factored into today's Season 7 pickup.
Elementary stars Jonny Lee Miller as famed British detective Sherlock Holmes, 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.

@Blaze. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
@Rodentman. Sherlock Holmes an odd name. Rodentman is normal?

@Blaze, so if your premise is correct why is a detective named Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Watson? So they weren't already historical characters and in the show they are just random names? Sorry I can't accept that. Anyway, the show is too formulaic and predictable.

@rodentman - Not exercising your imagination there, guy. You might as well say "How come in all these shows featuring action in the White House, Trump isn't walking in and demanding these squatters be evicted from his office?"
Because it is a fictional world. And in this fictional world, it is obvious that Sir Alfred Conan Doyle did not write any books featuring a character called "Sherlock Holmes". Possibly his detective was named "Mortimer Quimby". Possibly he wrote only cowboy stories.

Why??? This show lost its original take on Sherlock long ago. Now it's just another procedural cop drama with nothing new to saw about its characters.

I’m only 14 episodes behind, slowly watching. I like it even with Lucy Liu’s often bad acting and a frequently unintelligible mumbling Jonny Lee Miller. Yeah, the name Sherlock is comical. Did I say I still like it though?

Still loving the show ❤️❤️

Funny how no one in the show bats an eye when "Sherlock Holmes" is introduced to them. How corny can you get? And the virtually comatose smileless Watson. The show is well past its prime, if it ever had one. Maybe 2 seasons but no more.

Not the best show on TV, but one of the better procedurals out there with a good cast and decent writing. Plus good to have a little shake up with Sherlock's Health and it's ramifications. Even if the illness seems like a cop out of sorts would of been more interesting to discover some underlying pyscchotic issues and possible mental breakdown from the years of substance abuse and such.
