Sherlock Season 4 is coming out sometime next year, but following comments from Benedict Cumberbatch that we may be approaching the end of the show, Cumberbatch has hinted (viaBritish GQ) at the possibility that he’s worn the deerstalker for the last time:
“It might be the end of an era. 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.”
But creator/showrunner Steven Moffat seemed to think that it’s “unlikely” that season 4 will be the last season.
