It does look like we have seen the last of 'Bull' Season 5 for 2020. After four episodes of the new season, the show will take a hiatus and will return in 2021. Although there is no official reason listed by CBS, we can assume the show is on a Christmas break and will most likely resume from January. This was a similar template the hit legal procedural followed as Season 4 last aired on December 16 and then returned on January 6.

A lot of things have changed on the production front for 'Bull' as the ongoing fifth season will have just 16 episodes this season and CBS will look to space out the episodes as much as it can. The fourth episode titled 'Ex-Factor' revolves around Marissa (Geneva Carr) as she and Greg are put together again as they are accused of money laundering. The onus is on Jason Bull (Michael Weatherly) and Benny Colon (Freddy Rodriguez) to clear her name.

'Ex-Factor' ended with Izzy (Yara Martinez) surprising Bull with a ring that rang in a proposal. It was a pleasant end to what was a very tight episode. For Marissa, the story ended with a reconciliation of sorts. The next episode will surely focus a lot more on Bull and Izzy's relationship while also shedding light on Benny's DA aspirations as the episode so much didn't hint about what was next for the charismatic attorney. 

There isn't any official information from CBS about the return date for 'Bull' and nor is there any synopsis. Instead, the next two Mondays will see reruns of 'Bull Season 4 episodes. The next slot for 'Bull', which is December 21, will rebroadcast Episode 12 titled 'Behind the Ivy' from the previous season.

The official synopsis reads: "Chunk’s friend, Reggie (Don Guillory), an elite boarding school’s counselor, asks Bull to help the parents of an athletic scholarship student bring a wrongful death suit against the school after the teen dies suddenly while training, on a rebroadcast of BULL, Monday, Dec. 21 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 1/20/20.)"

The week after, Monday (December 28) will see a rerun of 'Bull' Season 4 Episode 17: 'The Invisible Woman'. This is an episode that walks on the same path of an outbreak in New York City, except it's a bacteria, Anthrax. The case they tackle is also the one that sees TAC pull off some impressive moves to win a case, especially when it goes down to the wire. The case is a classic example of a frame. 

'The Invisible Woman' was one of the most discussed episodes of Season 4. CBS provided an advisory just before the start of the episode, Michael Weatherly, who plays Dr Jason Bull, appears in the clip saying, "Tonight’s episode deals with a citywide panic, not unlike the fears and concerns people are experiencing all over the world at this moment." He seems to be referring to the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. “Before we start, we wanted to remind you this is a work of fiction. It was written and filmed months ago. And its only purpose is to entertain you.”

Guess 'Bull' decides to end the year by giving its viewers a chance to rewatch their best episode of Season 4 again.
