Set your ratings-based deductions aside. The Elementary TV show has been renewed for season six on on CBS. The modern-day Sherlock Holmes TV series adaptation has evaded the Television Vulture, for yet another season.
Set in New York City, Elementary follows detective Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). The CBS cast also includes Aidan Quinn as Captain Thomas Gregson and Jon Michael Hill as Detective Marcus Bell. Together, they investigate the Big Apple’s trickiest cases.
