Jonny Lee Miller returns as Sherlock Holmes, the world's most famous consulting detective, in Season 3 of the crime series. The drama begins when Holmes returns to New York City with a new apprentice, Kitty Winter (Ophelia Lovibond), and a renewed interest in working with the NYPD after being fired by London's MI6. Unfortunately, Joan Watson (Lucy Liu), the NYPD's new go-to private investigator, must give her approval first before Sherlock can resume consulting for the department. As for Kitty, she assists Sherlock on cases but she struggles with a dark secret from her past that comes back to haunt her present. And speaking of the past, Holmes is implicated in the murder of a woman who was killed during the height of his drug addiction. Aidan Quinn and Jon Michael Hill also star.

News & Interviews for Elementary: Season 3

Critic Reviews for Elementary: Season 3

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

Season 3 is not more of the same, or a throwback to the show's best work, but instead a display of actual growth and a willingness to try new directions.

November 29, 2018 | Full Review…

As the season progressed, Kitty did indeed grow on me, and I started to very much enjoy her interactions with the other characters. I felt she added something positive to the team dynamic, such as it was at the time.

December 21, 2018 | Full Review…

The writers did quite an impressive job snowballing me with red herrings and white noise.

April 30, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Well, it's a start.

October 27, 2017 | Full Review…

I turn to the idea of Sherlock's subtle dismantling of his sobriety system as Sherlock easing off the grind for a way to really accept the relapse as the culmination of Sherlock's arc this season.

August 22, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a solid outing, corpsicles and all.

Audience Reviews for Elementary: Season 3


New mysteries are afoot in the third season of Elementary. Picking up several months after the Season 2 finale, Holmes returns from London with a new protégée, Kitty Winter, after a failed stint with MI6. Ophelia Lovibond is especially good as Kitty, and brings a fun new energy to the show. And, Gina Gershon guest stars in an interesting multi-episode arc as a nemesis for Watson. Some of the cases-of-the-week are a little stale, but the character development for Holmes and Watson is incredibly compelling; as Holmes begins to truly care about his colleagues and Watson becomes more independent and self-reliant. While Season 3 of Elementary spicens up the show's formula a bit, it still remains as entertaining and full of intrigue as ever.
