Sky Witness Sets July UK Premiere Date For ‘Elementary’s 7th & Final Season
And so it comes to an end for Holmes and Watson, as Sky Witness announces a July UK premiere date for the 7th & final season of ‘Elementary‘.
‘Elementary’ stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr Joan Watson in a modern-day retelling of the crime-solving duo who crack the NYPD’s most impossible cases. Initially, sober companion and client, Watson and Holmes’ relationship evolved into a symbiotic professional investigative partnership.
If you remember the Season 6 finale, Holmes & Watson had been chasing Michael Rowan, a serial killer, but when Rowan turns up murdered, Joan is under suspicion of being the killer. Whilst neither Sherlock or Joan were responsible for his death (it was Captain Gregson’s daughter, Hannah, in retaliation for Michael’s earlier murder of her roommate), Sherlock ends up taking the blame. He escapes to the UK, and claims he was working for MI6 so he can’t be extradited, but that also means he is banned from returning to the US. The series ends with a six-month time jump which sees Holmes & Watson now both in London, and working for Scotland Yard.
In this opening episode of Season 7, Holmes and Watson’s new careers as consultants for Scotland Yard in London take them inside the tabloid journalism industry when a popular model is the victim of an acid attack. Also, as Watson grows increasingly homesick for New York, Captain Gregson is wracked with guilt over his unresolved rift with his former consultants.
Along with Miller and Liu, the new season sees the return of Aidan Quinn as Captain Gregson and Jon Michael Hill as Detective Bel. James Frain (‘Star Trek: Discovery’, ‘Orphan Black’) also joins the main cast this year as Odin Reichenbach, well-renowned tech mogul that Sherlock & Joan meet after he hires them to find who made a kidnapping threat against his niece… Although, that clearly isn’t the whole story…
‘Elementary‘ Season 7 premieres Tuesday, 16 July 2019 at 9pm on Sky Witness in the UK.
