After six seasons on the air, legal drama Bull starring Michael Weatherly is entering its final chapter. The network canceled this show midway through its sixth season, and the final episode is expected to air this May.

In an official statement announcing its cancelation, CBS praised the creative team behind this show for bringing it to life and offering a fresh take on the judicial process through its inventive storylines. They also thanked the fans of the show and promised them a final run of compelling episodes.

Weatherly took to Twitter to thank the cast, crew, and the creative team for “helping reinvent the legal drama” while working on Bull, and added that he’s ready for new creative endeavors.

“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,” wrote Weatherly.

Bull premiered on CBS in 2016, and it’s inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, who is one of its co-creators and executive producer. It centers on Dr. Jason Bull, the brilliant founder of a jury consulting firm Trial Analysis Corporation, who really knows how to make jurors, attorneys, witnesses, and the accused tick.
