Tv Season Info

In the sixth season of "Elementary," Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) discovers he has post-concussion syndrome. He keeps the information on the down-low, but Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) and Tommy Gregson (Aidan Quinn) find out anyway. Gregson benches Holmes from the 11th Precinct as a result. With his current health situation and after discovering the truth behind Mycroft's (Rhys Ifan) disappearance, Holmes takes comfort from Michael (Desmond Harrington), a new friend that Holmes met at one of his NA meetings. When a serial killer begins dropping women on the streets of New York, Holmes and Watson scramble to catch the culprit, not knowing that the culprit is someone close. "Elementary" also stars Jon Michael Hill as Detective Marcus Bell. The show also features guest appearances by Ato Essandoh as Alfredo, Liza J. Bennett as Hannah Gregson, Rich Sommer as Harlan Emple, Freda Foh Shen as Mary Watson, and John Noble as Morland Holmes.

Critic Reviews for Elementary Season 6

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

Let's hope the peripherals fall into line around it over the season; this arc will require all the slow stubborn broad-shouldered strength this show has to spare.

May 1, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

[I]t's impressive that both stars can still come up with the goods in such a long-established series.

Apr 22, 2020 | Full Review…

The heart of the show is the way the characters riff off each other, throwing around ideas and running down clues.

Aug 29, 2019 | Full Review…

It's encouraging to see that Elementary has been able to solve 'the Moriarty problem' - with a seventh season on the way, it's a great position for the show to be in.

Jan 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Elementary becomes not just the story of a brilliant man solving convoluted crimes, but, more importantly, one about the day-by-day process of recovery.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a nice change of pace.

Sep 18, 2018 | Full Review…

There's still plenty here to solve.

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

We'll always have Joan Watson, and she makes everything better.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

We got a new twist this time.

May 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Will this show ever stand up and be counted among the best Sherlock productions ever? Probably not. But it sure is going where other Sherlocks are afraid to step.

Audience Reviews for Elementary: Season 6

  • Apr 24, 2019
    Sherlock Holmes comes up against one of the most sinister and villainous criminals of his career in Season 6 of Elementary. After being asked to look into a missing persons case for a fellow narcotics anonymous member named Michael, Sherlock discovers that Michael is the killer and is committing murders to test Sherlock's wits. Meanwhile, Watson works toward become an adoptive parent and Det. Bell begins qualifying for the marshal service. Desmond Harrington joins the cast as a recurring character and does a good job at playing Sherlock's nemesis. And a few other interesting guest stars also stop by. A couple of story threads from previous seasons are touched on, such as Sherlock's father's takeover of Moriarty's organization, but for the most part the season keeps to self-contained cases-of-the-week. Yet the season finale delivers one of the most far-reaching, show altering twist endings of the series. Elementary's sixth season is remarkably entertaining and is full of intriguing mysteries.

    The need for plots that span one or series has been at the expense of weak plots in each episode. The writers have run out of steam. The whole point of any Sherlock Holmes story is that you're given all the the information, but only Sherlock can figure it out. Otherwise you're watching Miss Marple. The earlier series were so much better.
  • Mar 19, 2019
    Great show, many creative ways of killing and disposing of bodies. I find I can no longer cook with nutmeg.
  • Sep 23, 2018
    I felt this was a decent season. What I liked about Elementary is that the mysteries are solidly crafted with inventive ideas often based on current inventions, government policies, etc. Although I don't know how I feel about the actor who played the main antagonist, he does serve as a good foil for Sherlock. I especially liked the ending and how they did something that surprised and completely made sense in the retrospect.
  • Sep 21, 2018
    the quality fluctuated during season 5, however this show managed to pivot and put out an excellent season 6. this show succeeds to not only reinvent a beloved classic but course-correct to get back to the quality we expected from previous seasons. also, the cast is phenomenal.
  • Sep 20, 2018
    So, I guess this is how they write out the Detective Bell and Captain Gregson. A bit drastic, but let's hope it works.
  • Sep 17, 2018
    Elementary has a unique flair of grabbing people's interest from the start to finish
  • Sep 17, 2018
    It Can get repetitive ,and some times boring
  • Aug 13, 2018
    First seasons where aweosome but it got repetitive, i only watch it now because i love lucy liu and Jonny Lee Miller together talking stuff, they should have a radio show or something.
  • Aug 03, 2018
    S6E12, Meet Your Maker, was the best episode of the season. Usually, they dick around most of the episode trying to figure out who the perpetrator is, when it's almost always someone they meet in the first 20 minutes. They still did that, but unlike most episodes, they stopped several crimes along the way, arrested several criminals in the process of finding the killer, and no innocent people died, including the victims. Unlike one episode from a while back regarding a reopened cold case and a dinosaur fossil, they didn't do anything wrong, nor did they inadvertently cause anyone to commit any additional crimes in the process of finding the killer(s). It was the best episode of the series I've seen so far.
