Sherlock Holmes has been an all-time favorite for crime fiction lovers. The series is based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories. All the seasons of Sherlock always had a mysterious ending, which made the audience eagerly wait for a new season. Still, Season four for Sherlock Holmes had a somewhat happy ending, which made fans believe that there wouldn’t be another season. With the fourth season, the first chapter of Sherlock Holmes’s story has finished, and the new season will start the next chapter with new adventures and new villains to the story.
The season four ended with a lot of mess as it had cases with mysteries behind and left uncovered. So hopefully, the new season will uncover them and solve the puzzles of the evidence. There are also possibilities for the new season to have some references for cases and characters from the original books. The new season will surely have Holmes and Watson getting into trouble while solving the cases.
The director of the series said that he would not make the new season without the original actors. Hence, as for the cast, it is evident that Benedict Cumberbatch and martin freeman will reprise their roles as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Mark Gatiss, who is also the Executive producer, will return for the part of Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock’s brother. Other cast members have not been confirmed yet.
As for now, nothing has been confirmed. The last season aired almost three years ago and, there are rumors for this season to start filming next year, which will result in its release in 2022 or 2023. The main cast of the series, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, are busy with their schedule and may not return for some time, which might result in the series talking more time or even getting canceled! As per the officials, there are no immediate plans for the season.
No trailer has been launched yet, and the audience cannot expect it for a year or two.
