Sherlock may end of series 4

There’s good news and bad news for Sherlock fans today. First, we’re now less than three months away from a new series of the super-sluthe’s adventures (probably). The bad news? It may well be the show’s last.
At least, that’s if Sherlock himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, is to be believed.
The actor recently told GQ that the next three films “might be the end of an era” and added: “It certainly feels like the end of an era, to be honest.”
There may still be a small shred of hope that the show will continue, however, with Benedict adding “never say never” to making more Sherlock.
“I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it – I stand by that,” he said. “The idea of never playing him again is really galling.

“But in the immediate future we all have things that we want to crack on with and we’ve made something very complete as it is, so I think we’ll just wait and see.”

Of course, Benedict could just be stoking anticipation for what is already promising a devastating emotional upheaval.


After all, co-creator Stephen Moffat has already said that a fifth series of the detective drama has bee plotted, with Benedict also signed up for another run of episodes.

But then again, he did say back in July that the fourth series could be Sherlock’s last.

“I don’t know how long we can keep it going,” he admitted. “I would be moderately surprised if this was the last time we ever made this show – but it absolutely could be.”

Basically, we have absolutely no idea what’s going on.

What we do know, though, is that Sherlock series four will air in early 2017 (probably starting New Year’s Day) on BBC1.
