Axed: Bull confirms final season

Michael Weatherly legal drama will conclude in Autumn.

Bull is ending with its current sixth season.

Michael Weatherly announced on Twitter that he would be leaving the show to “pursue new creative challenges.”

“Hello all! It’s been my privilege to play Dr Jason Bull but after 6 Seasons of incredible storylines, I’ve decided it’s time to pursue new creative challenges and bring his story to a close,” he wrote. “It has been an honor to work with this talented cast, crew, and writing/producing team who helped reinvent the legal drama. Stay tuned for a big series finish…Thanks to all the fans from the bottom of my heart. You will always be a part of our Bull family!”

The series was inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw and starred Yara Martinez, Geneva Carr, Jaime Lee Kirchner, Christopher Jackson, and MacKenzie Meehan. Freddy Rodriguez also starred in the first five seasons.

“For six seasons, Bull has established itself as a ratings winner with its fresh take on the judicial process never before seen on television,” CBS said in a statement. “We extend our thanks to the talented cast, Michael Weatherly, Geneva Carr, Yara Martinez, Jaime Lee Kirchner, Christopher Jackson, MacKenzie Meehan, the incredible creative team led by Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard, and our hard working crew, for bringing to life these innovative stories. We also thank our loyal viewers and look forward to providing them with a final run of compelling episodes filled with the humor, intelligence and twists that have made the drama a fan favorite.”

Last year 10 screened the series across Wednesday nights all year.

The finale is expected in autumn.

  1. Not surprised this is happening as it is currently the lowest rated of CBS’s dramas and with all the behind the scenes issues.

    Haven’t been watching this season as much as the removal of the character of Benny really changed the dynamics of the show and Bull and his ego are getting pretty insufferable. Will miss the characters of Chunk and Marissa though – they were great.

    1. CBS is in trouble at the moment the merger with Viacom was a huge mistake according to Craig Huber of Huber Research Partners, this was back in 2020 and CBS is still struggling along with ViacomCBS streaming, now known as Paramount+. Viewers should probably expect to see a few other lesser performing CBS dramas being cancelled in coming months.

      1. Ten airs Bull just under a week after it airs in the US. So for example the episode that aired in the US on Thurs 13th aired in Australia last night (Wed 19th). You can watched the episodes on Paramount+ before they air here though too. I’m not sure when exactly they’re put up on Paramount+ but it is same day as the US. I don’t pay attention to know if it is before the airing time or not given our time difference.
