One of the few series on network television starring an Asian American, Elementary, has been renewed by CBS.
The show stars Lucy Liu as Joan Watson and Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlocke Holmes.
The Hollywood Reporter says Elementary escaped a death sentence despite being CBS’ lowest rated drama.
Apparently the show has enough international appeal and attractive library deals to make keeping the show for a sixth season worthwhile.
Two episodes remain this season.
According to Entertainment Weekly the brains behind the the SBK gang will be revealed.
“So in the second to last episode, Sherlock and Joan will realize they’ve underestimated a certain shadowy member of the group. They’re going up against a very different kind of gang leader, to say the least,” said executive producer Rob Doherty.
