Elementary cancelled after 7 seasons, will end in 2019 with a final 13 episodes as Holmes and Watson return to New York.

The drama series Elementary with Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu has been cancelled with the upcoming 7th season in 2019 that will be its last.

The 7th season of the show produced by CBS Television Studios wrapped production on Friday last week and will have 13 episodes to wrap up the series.

Elementary has been seen in South Africa and across Africa initially on M-Net and then moved to M-Net City (DStv 115).

"A lot of parties came together and talked about their positions on the show — both in terms of business and in terms of creative — and we all decided that this was an opportune time to say goodbye to a show that has been very, very good to us," says Kelly Kahl, CBS Entertainment president.

The 6th season of Elementary ended with Holmes and Watson moving from New York to London and Sherlock Holmes' iconic 221B Baker Street address to work with Scotland Yard, but they will return to New York in the 7th season.

Elementary producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe on Twitter in a statement said "Once again, just wanted to say what an incredible honor it was to work on this show".

"From creator Rob Doherty and his partner-in-crime Carl Beverly, to my fellow writers, our amazing cast and crew, our top notch editors, was a 1st class group in every way."
