"Elementary" Season 5 cancellation news reveals that the network has not yet made its decision with regard to the show's future. As TVLine reports, executive producer Rob Doherty has remained optimistic that the show will go on for a sixth season.

Doherty explained that there is a lot more story to tell after "Elementary" Season 5. Aside from this, Doherty shared that the finale was created without an endgame in mind and in no way does it serve as a series ender.

Doherty added that the finale will leave fans with a "cliffhanger in a couple of respects." This means that if CBS suddenly decides to pull the plug on "Elementary" Season 5, the finale may leave a lot of viewers dissatisfied and with a lot of questions left unanswered.

"Elementary" Season 5 ratings are not as stellar as other shows on CBS. As the publication notes, the show has only been averaging five million total viewers, which is lower than the canceled series, "Pure Genius."

Meanwhile, "Elementary" Season 5 spoilers from Carter Matt reveal that in episode 21, viewers will see more of Detective Ball and his girlfriend, Chantal. Holmes and Watson will be helping Detective Ball after his girlfriend has become a victim of an assault.

Chantal's ex-husband, on the other hand, will be killed. "Elementary" Season 5 spoilers reveal that the two will discover something "heartbreaking" about Detective Ball on the process of their investigation.
