Without a doubt, Sherlock is one of the best detective series of all time. With an intriguing storyline and a carefully twisted plotline, this is a treat to the viewer’s eye. Among the other highlights, the icing on the cake would be the brilliant acting of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
Looking at all the previous seasons released, these are the obvious things that are expected to be found, but the question that still arises is, Will there be a season 5? What is the real reason for the delay? Will there be a new cast? You can stop wondering now, as here are all the updates that you need to know regarding the show.
Will there be a Sherlock Season 5?
The only hope that rose regarding season 5 was when Mark, the showrunner, and Steven, the co-showrunner, showed an interest to come up with the next season of the show on the sets of season 4, which was the last season of the show as of now.
But since then, there has been no confirmation on this. Also, bringing the show back means bringing Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman back. But as of now, their schedules are packed, so even if there is a chance of the show to come back, it will be happening in 2022 or 2023.
With all these speculations, there is also a fair chance that this show dissolves as the production house or the studio has not confirmed any possibility of the shoot yet.
What is the real reason for the delay?
As far as we can see, the real reason behind the show’s delay can be the undying conflicts between the lead actors, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. This is like one of the significant cold wars going on between the celebrities, which has reached a point that none of them is keen on working with each other. These fights between the lead actors can be a real setback for the ardent fans of the show.
Will there be a new cast for the show?
If it is up to the fans, they are eagerly waiting for Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as Watson for the new season. But, as per the speculations of the feud between the two, there is no confirmation for that to happen. As per the previous season, a new character was introduced named Eurus Holmes, played by Sian Brooke as the sister of Sherlock. She can still be there for the continuation of the plot, but nothing is confirmed as of now.
As of now, these are all the updates that we have. We will fill you in with more as soon as it comes. Till then, keep reading for more information.
