In a recent interview, Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of the BBC hit series Sherlock gave indications that season four may have been the last. From Deadline Hollywood:
“It might be the end of an era,” Cumberbatch told GQ UK in a recent interview. “It feels like the end of an era, to be honest. It goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately. We never say never on the show. I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that, 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. The idea of never playing him again is really galling.”
There has been no season 5 renewal for the series, which airs on PBS in the U.S. and BBC in the UK, and co-creator Steven Moffat had previously said in an interview that he would be “mildly surprised” if Season 4 is the last, the mildness due mainly to the busy schedules of stars Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
