The veteran crime drama will say good-bye in 2019.
December 17, 2018
CBS announced today that Elementary will close out its run after its already-ordered seventh season. The news comes just days after the long-running crime procedural filmed the final scene of its now-series finale.
Many saw the move coming, as the drama - at over 140 episodes - has recently felt like it was nearing the end of the road creatively. Its sixth season was also the first not to air in-season, instead being moved to the network's mid-season schedule where it aired from April through September.
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.
There is no time frame on when the show will return for its seventh and final 13-episode season, though some time in 2019 appears likely.

It was a pretty decent series finale for a show that I have enjoyed for many years.

I for one appreciate self-contained episodes for a show like this. It's not "padding" if it's the point of the series for him to solve crimes. I may be alone but I saw the first 2 eps of "Sherlock" and I didn't care for it.

There was an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal some months ago as to why "Elementary" and other seemingly past their prime shows like it keep getting renewed like "Elementary" did for its sixth and seventh seasons. Often it comes down to the network owns the show and the rerun rights, it's a known quantity that still has a small but devoted following, and, well, you have to show something in the time slot.
I don't think anybody will miss it.

No most of the episodes were stand alone stories with a little bit of plot added at the end. Tacking on story to a stand alone episode does not make the episode worth making. It is what most networks shows do and it is why most network dramas are falling. You are probably having trouble seeing it because you probably only watch network dramas.

I do not know what you are talking about. All the episodes were part of a season ark usually. WIth some episodes having less importance to the overall ark. That is what all tv series do mostly.
