Sherlock Holmes is returning to his native stomping grounds. CBS has just announced that Elementary will film its second season premiere episode in London this July.
In the second season premiere episode, Sherlock Holmes is called to London to revisit an old case and, while doing so, is forced to face his past. Meanwhile, Watson learns more about Holmes’ mysterious life and the company he kept before he left for New York.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have this opportunity to see Sherlock’s old stomping grounds and take a closer look at a life that, until now, we’ve only been able to glimpse through the lens of his recovery,” said Executive Producer and Creator Robert Doherty. “By meeting old friends and revisiting prior cases, Watson will gain even more insight into Holmes. She’ll have to keep up with a Sherlock who is both more comfortable in his surroundings and even bolder in testing the limits of those around him.”
In addition to being one of CBS top performers of this season, Elementary has also proved to be a hit on the world stage. The modern take on the Holmes character, which was acquired for UK broadcast by Sky Living last July, ranks as the channel’s highest ever rated US drama series.
