Steven Moffat Says Ideas For SHERLOCK Season/Series 4 & 5 Are '...the best we’ve ever had.'


Via Radio Times, SHERLOCK co-creator, writer, and Executive Producer Steven Moffat has revealed that they're already shaping more SHERLOCK for our future.  This admission evidently happened at a recent BAFTA screening of S3’s final installment.  

While this doesn’t come as a tremendous surprise, the infrequency of SHERLOCK production…combined with the escalating popularity of show leads Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman…have prompted some to worry that it’s current third Season/Series may be its last.  It should be noted that Cumberbatch has indicated he and Freeman have already signed for Season 4  - HERE - although this news didn't get much play for some reason.  

"Rather excitingly, Mark and I, for no particular reason, we just got out of the rain and sat at the top of the [Sherlock] production bus… and we just started plotting out what we could do in the future."


"And we plotted out the whole of series four and five."


"The ideas we had that day, I thought were the best we’ve ever had."


…says Moffat HERE.  

SHERLOCK S3 concludes this Sunday on BBC One, and begins January 19 on PBS here in the States.  I wasn’t exactly knocked out by The Empty Hearse (this Series’ introductory episode) but found its successor, The Sign of Three, to be rather amazing television and storytelling.  Looking forward to seeing how (or if) it all comes together this weekend.  

SHERLOCK S3 recently went up for pre-order HERE in the US and HERE in the UK, and will be available quite soon in both countries.
