This work presents a theoretical study on the analytical calculation of the lineshape of polarization spectroscopy (PS) for the transition line 5<i>s</i><sup>2</sup> <sup>1</sup>S<sub>0</sub> → 5<i><sub>s</sub></i>5<i><sub>p</sub></i><sup>1</sup>P<sub>1</sub> of <sup>88</sup>Sr. From the obtained analytical form of the PS spectrum, we were able to identify how the saturation affected the lineshape of the PS spectrum. The results obtained will be useful for polarization spectroscopy experiments using the alkaline-earth atoms such as Sr or Yb.
