Has Bull been canceled? Why season 7 won’t be happening on CBS


The long-running legal drama, Bull, is currently airing season 6 on CBS, and in light of recent events regarding MichaelWeatherly’s exit from the show, it was announced that the series would be ending with the sixth chapter.

Up ahead, we explore if CBS canceled the show, if season 7 was ever on the table, and the public statements released by both CBS and Weatherly.

Bull originally debuted in 2016 starring Geneva Carr, Yara Martinez, Jaime Lee Kirchner, Christopher Jackson, and MacKenzie Meehan alongside Weatherly, following the events inspired by the initial career of television host, Dr. Phil McGraw.

Has Bull been canceled by CBS?

Following the departure of Freddy Rodriguez last year and now the show’s lead, Michael Weatherly, CBS has decided to cancel the legal drama.

As reported by Deadline, CBS has decided to end the legal drama with season 6 and the network released the following statement:

“For six seasons, Bull has established itself as a ratings winner with its fresh take on the judicial process never before seen on television,” the network 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 hardworking 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.”

What does this mean for season 7?

Sadly, this means that there will be no season 7 on the table for fans of the show.

It has not been reported exactly when the decision to ax the show came into play, but it is thought that CBS had every intention of continuing the show into a seventh season last year.

Sources say that the decision was made in the new year, but enough notice was given to the writers of the show so that they could craft a new ending for season 6 in order to bring an end to the story.
