Not so soon!
Benedict Cumberbatch acknowledged that the fifth season of his excellent BBC program Sherlock It could happen one day, but it won’t be soon. These days, Cumberbatch is known around the world as the resident sorcerer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Steven Strange. But it was his role as Sherlock Holmes that brought him to the limelight.
Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock is a reboot of the iconic detective of the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who currently lives in present-day London. Cumberbatch brings the eccentric and slightly troublesome version of the ace detective up front, while Martin Freeman plays his loyal friend, Dr. John Watson. Both Cumberbatch and Freeman have won Emmy Awards for their stellar performances.
The future of the program
The show is immensely popular, but it has been known to have had its sweet spot in between seasons. There was a three-year gap between seasons three and four. With the fourth final in 2017 and ending in a shocking cliffhanger involving Sherlock’s nemesis Professor Moriarty (Andrew Scott), fans are eagerly awaiting what’s next. But the fanbase is divided, with some saying that season 4 episode 3 ended with what can be seen as a near-frozen conclusion. But since Cumberbatch said it, there could have been some kind of discussion about future seasons.
During an interview with Collider to talk about his new movie, The courier serviceCumberbatch was asked about the show, where he said that he is the worst person to ask as he never says never. He also added that his roster is full right now, as is that of Martin and the other key players. So he concluded by saying that everyone can get together when the script is correct.
Cumberbatch is currently filming for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity and Freeman is expected to return for Black Panther 2.
