Reports today indicate that the highly controversial Sherlock Holmes pilot Elementary has been green-lit for a full season, despite claims of plagiarism from the makers of BBC’s Sherlock.

The consistently reliable Variety announced the rumour, indicating that the broadcaster picked up the show alongside three other dramas and two new comedies. Vegas Rising, Golden Boy, Baby Big Shot, Friend Me, and Partners will join the American take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s super sleuth.

Elementary (starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu as Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson, respectively) is a modern-day retelling of the classic stories set in New York City – the premise of which upset both BBC chiefs and Sherlock creators when it was announced back in January for its resemblance to the British show.

There is currently no word on the length of said season, and this report has not yet been confirmed by CBS – but we’ll let you know when it’s official!

Are you happy to hear that Elementary could potentially be hitting screens this September?
