Elementary season seven, episode one aired last night (Thursday, May 23) on CBS. Elementary season seven is the last ever series, with just 13 episodes overall. The series airs on Sky Witness in the UK but a release date has not yet been confirmed as yet. Elementary is a modern take on the famous detective Sherlock Holmes, who is living in modern-day New York instead of investigating crimes in Victorian London.
Where is Elementary season seven set?
Elementary season seven is set in present-day New York City and London.
The crime drama series is a contemporary version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous character, Sherlock Holmes.
The show stars Trainspotting’s Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Ally McBeal’s Lucy Liu as Dr Joan Watson.
The series follows Holmes – a former drug addict who used to work for Scotland Yard in London and the New York City Police Department.
The seventh series begins in London, where Holmes and Watson have been employed as consultants for Scotland Yard.
Rob Doherty, creator and executive producer of Elementary told Screen Rant Holmes and Watson will not be in London for long in the final series.
He said: “We really wanted to go back to New York and Gregson (played by Aidan Quinn) and Bell (Jon Michael Hill) and we found what we felt was a satisfying way to bring them back.”
Watson and Homes fled to London after Watson was framed for a murder and Holmes took the fall for her.
In London, they investigate the tabloid journalism industry after a model becomes victim to the acid attack.
Sherlock season seven mainly takes place in New York, where Captain Thomas Gregson is based.
Season seven of Elementary will also involve a major time jump, inspired by Sherlock Holmes author Conan Doyle.
In his stories, there were periods of time when Holmes and Watson were not working together, which encouraged the showrunners to create the time jump.
Doherty said: “We felt that would be appropriate for our show. A lot was season 7 working towards that: How can we tell a larger story that would allow us to devise a finale that’s set in the not-so-distant future?”
