We May Be Getting A Lot More SHERLOCK Than We Originally Thought
Sherlock series three has gone by way too fast. It has been spectacular, but the finale is already upon us. This Sunday we’ll see His Last Vow take over our TV (and computer) screens. Then shortly after that PBS will start airing the entire series in America…if you haven’t seen it already. There was talk at one time that series three would be the end of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman‘s adventures as the world’s most famous crime solving duo, but Cumberbatch went ahead and confirmed a fourth series on the red carpet a few months ago much to the surprise of Steven Moffat. Since then we’ve figure we’ve got at least three more episodes. Turns out we could get a lot more than that.
The series three finale has just been premiered at BAFTA, and a Q&A panel with Moffat and producer Sue Vertue took place shortly afterwards. The Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner has said that we would get a series four, but now he’s saying “we’ve already plotted out series four and five.” Series five is the big news.
Now that doesn’t mean that the BBC will definitely order up a fourth or a fifth series, but with the show reaching an all-time high in both popularity and ratings, not to mention the internet cult of Cumberbatch, it seems likely that a fifth series is very likely to happen. Cumberbatch and Freeman are both in-demand actors now, but both have said they’d make time for Sherlock as long as they can. Regardless of how things play out, it’s nice to know that there is plan. What do you think about Sherlock chugging right along for three or six more episodes?
