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.
