In the title complex, [Cd2(C17H14O4S)2(C10H8N2)2], which was hydro­thermally synthesized, the CdII cation is hexa­coordinated in a distorted octa­hedral geometry by two N atoms from a 2,2′-bipyridine ligand and by four O atoms from two different 2-[3-carboxyl­atometh­yl-4-(phenyl­sulfan­yl)phen­yl]propano­ate ligands, forming a cyclic dimetallic complex.
