CBS' Elementary has entered its sixth season. In case you’re looking to either catch up on the previous six seasons or watch future seasons, then Netflix may not be the best location as we’ll discuss below.
The procedural drama, which has been running six years now, is based upon the Sherlock Holmes books. It’s the only American show currently based on the novel but the British also have their own adaptation in the form of Sherlock. Each show has its merits, and Elementary is still a success story for CBS.
Jonny Lee Miller is Sherlock Holmes' lead detective and Lucy Lui plays Dr Joan Watson. Sherlock must solve complex problems.
As you’ve probably guessed by now, Elementary isn’t on Netflix in most English speaking regions. Let’s take a look at each region below and why you can’t stream it.

This is due to an exclusive agreement between CBS and Hulu where all new episodes and older episodes are streamed there. The CBS All Access website and CBS All Access can also be used to catch up, but you can only access the 5 previous episodes.
Over in the United Kingdom, most to all of CBS’s shows can be found on NowTV which is owned by Sky. The majority of these shows first air on Sky One or Sky Atlantic, before being added to the NowTV streaming platform.
Many countries in Europe and South America stream at least four seasons. These figures are based on UNOGs. As always, all information is accurate as at the time of publication.
