What’s in store for the end of Elementary? Recently, star Lucy Liu spoke with The Wrap about the seventh and final season of the CBS TV show.
An update on the classic Sherlock Holmes stories, Elementary stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson. The cast also includes Aidan Quinn and Jon Michael Hill.
In the interview, Liu said she felt “joyous” about the final 13 episodes of Elementary:
I didn’t shed a tear, because the joys that came out of this show were the kind that I don’t know that I would’ve thought possible doing other shows and other movies. I just felt so happy. Is that strange? I felt joyous.”
Later, Liu revealed the final season of the CBS series will further explore Joan’s desire to start a family:
I think she definitely continues to struggle with it. It’s something that I know a lot of women friends of mine also struggle with. That sense of “I’m so in the flow right now, is it a good time for me to stop and go into this?” It’s a very modern sort of thing to be concerned about. So it’s something that comes up in Season 7, and I was glad for it. Because like I was saying, it was important to me to delve into her personal life more and not give up on that, or say that [starting a family] was out of the picture just because she made a choice about it before. I’m glad Rob was able to continue that story and not just let her turn into somebody who doesn’t even think about it. Because I’ve had friends who decided not to have children, but they did at some point think about it, you know? So I think that’s an honest assessment of what it means to prioritize your career.”
Elementary airs on CBS on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
