Creator Steven Moffat confirms two more seasons of Sherlock are coming

1 year agoby:

As the BBC prepares to air the third and final episode of the latest series of SHERLOCK episodes, North American audiences are still over a week away from seeing them hit PBS. But, there is good news as creator Steven Moffat has confirmed that SHERLOCK will return for at least two more seasons. The news comes at the premiere of the final episode of the year, "His Last Vow", where Moffat revealed the news that will surely makes fans of the Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman detective show very happy.

The Radio Times reported Moffat's news:

“Rather excitingly, Mark [Gatiss] 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,”

Moffat called the ideas for the fourth and fifth series the best that he and Mark Gatiss have ever had. Fans of SHERLOCK have waited two years between the second season cliffhanger and the three new episodes that are ringing in 2014. SHERLOCK has an unusually short run each season but each episode serves as a standalone film and doesn't feel like TV at all. Cumberbatch and Freeman have brought a unique quality to their portrayals of Holmes and Watson that rival the likes of Basil Rathbone as the best put to film.

When we can expect the next two seasons is unknown as both stars are highly in demand these days. Cumberbatch is coming off his busiest year with roles in THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, 12 YEARS A SLAVE, and THE FIFTH ESTATE. Freeman starred in THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG, Edgar Wright's THE WORLD'S END, and is currently filming the FX series FARGO, based on the film from The Coen Brothers.

So get excited, SHERLOCK fans, because more is coming. It is just a matter of when. SHERLOCK's third season airs in the U.S. on PBS beginning January 19th.

Fingers crossed for a crossover with Doctor Who. Yes, not likely, but a guy can dream.

This news is just making the anticipation for season 3 that much more aggravating.

Yay!

I've been enjoying Season Three so this is excellent news! Perhaps the return of Moriarty is around the corner?

I would love to see their dismissive explanation of how he survived shooting himself in the head. "He wasn't the real Moriarty!"

If you haven't seen this show, you're missing out!

This is one of the best shows on tv, both actors feel so natural in their portrayals, and the supporting cast is great! Cumberbatch was born for this role, and Freeman is perfect as Watson!

Best show on TV right now.

Bar none. Season 3 has been phenomenal so far, and I couldn't be happier that seasons 4 and 5 are confirmed. I can't see it going much further than that, however. At some point, if it hasn't happened already, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch's schedules will just get too hectic to do it anymore. One of the best effects that BBC's Sherlock is that it's thrown Freeman and Cumberbatch into the public eye again, leading to more movies for both of them to show off their talents. Still, I'm

Moffat knows TV

Never watched a single episode of Dr Who before but I did watch The Day of the Doctor where they brought Tennant & Hurt with Matt Smith, which I thought was absolutely brilliant. Been catching up ever since. As for Sherlock, Cumberbatch+Freeman brought the brilliant witty script to life. Long may this wonderful TV candy continue.

Love it.

I just hope we don't have to wait another 2 years for season 4.

Sherlock

is one of the best shows on TV right now. The writing is amazing. They have taken some classic stories and updated them perfectly. Cumberbatch is bloody fantastic and Freeman is great too. I love their interactions. This series just puts Elementary and the RDJ movies to shame. (and I have actually read all the original stories).

Woo-hoo!

This is amazing news. I'm a fan of Moffat (who also wrote some excellent DR. WHO episodes), Cumberbatch and Freeman and the fact that they're continuing to work on SHERLOCK makes me very happy indeed.

Moffat is running tv right now. Doctor Who is the best show of all time (I have seen everything from the third doctor to now) and the second best show is Sherlock!
