Sherlock will return in 2016 to BBC with a new special that will take Holmes and Watson back in time to the Victorian age, and fans could see even more Sherlock for the foreseeable future.
Benedict Cumberbatch is the man behind Sherlock Holmes, and he does not see a reason to stop playing the role for the series. His schedule is still extremely busy, but he wants to continue on with the role. He is willing to make time for it.
He spoke about his future with the series with Digital Spy. He said:
“I’m still enjoying it – and we’ll see how the next series goes, but I’ve said many times before I’d love to keep ageing with him. As actors, what intrigues us all to come back and play these characters is that there is scope for them to expand and change and evolve. It’d be an interesting experiment. Martin [Freeman] and I started this relatively young compared to a lot of pairings of Holmes and Watson, so why not?”
