Elementary new episodes ordered

CBS's Elementary has been so successful that the studio have ordered another block of episodes, increasing the first season from the 13 episodes already filmed to a full run of 22.

“Ready or not, here we come!” tweeted the show’s jubilant writers (via @ELEMENTARYStaff) the same evening, following the announcement.

The American Sherlock Holmes update, starring British actor Jonny Lee Miller, was initially commissioned as a 13-part series but outstanding ratings in the US made it an easy decision for the network to extend the run. Elementary is the number two-rated series of the season so far, with the most recent ratings figures showing an average audience of over 14 million in its Thursday 10pm slot.

Controversial due to its arrival hot on the heels of Sherlock, the BBC’s own modern-day take on the great detective, Elementary sees Miller's Holmes, a recovering addict, move to New York where he teams up with Lucy Liu’s female companion Dr Joan Watson.

I hadn't seen this news. Fantastic. And, to think: I have only 15 minutes until the 4th episode. Really enjoyed the third (kidnapper) quite a bit.
