Sherlock will premiere its fourth season on January 1 on PBS, but is a fifth season possible after that season wraps? Martin Freeman spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the return of the series and the possibility of more after this season airs.
Will the series live on after season four? Freeman made it sound like the series is coming to an end in his interview. He said the following:
“Everyone involved in the show is acutely aware of how well-written it is and how well-produced it is. If you are on a show that is well-written, well-shot, well-scored, and you’re lucky enough to have chemistry with the person, that’s pretty cool. And that doesn’t come along every day. But at the same time, we do want to do other stuff. And thank God we’re all busy. [Co-creators] Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are busy. Everyone’s busy. I wouldn’t want to make any promises either way on that.
I think things ending is not a thing to be afraid of. Can you imagine the Beatles now? Jesus. Certain things should end. I think everything is supposed to be finite. Who knows? I never really know once we’ve finished a series, because it takes a long time to make another one.”
Fans of Sherlock will see big changes for season four. These include a baby for Watson and a new villain. Are you excited for the return of this series? Tell us what you think.
