Will Sherlock continue after season 3 or will Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman be too big for television?

Sep. 10, 2012by: Alex Maidy

We know, based on hints from SHERLOCK creator Mark Gatiss, that the show will have the standard three episode/movie format for the upcoming third season. But, will there be a fourth season?

Benedict Cumberbatch is poised to become a big star with his upcoming roles in STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS and THE HOBBIT. Martin Freeman is banking on THE HOBBIT to increase his star power as well. With the likely slew of big screen roles coming their way, how would they find time to continue on a television series, even one with an unconventional format like SHERLOCK?

Per Blastr, an insider has been reported as saying Benedict and Martin love Sherlock. It's been fabulous for both of them but it's a question of schedules. They will no doubt be signing off in style.

Cumberbatch himself was also quoted as saying I need to have some more talks with them and tease them about the fact that I do have a career outside of Sherlock now, so they'd better write something.

SHERLOCK doesn't feel like a television series. The high production values and formatting of each episode as a stand alone film make it feel like it could have been a theatrical release. I would be very sad if they didn't continue beyond the upcoming season, but of course that would only mean more of these great actors on the big screen.

Which of these options results in less Cumberbatch in the media? That's the option I choose.

Instead of having three episodes per season, they can always drop it to two or one. It's not a traditional TV show where they have to spend 6 months a year on it. The fact that season 2 was filmed during production of The Hobbit shows that schedules can be fit. Hell...we'll see Season 3 before all the Hobbit movies have even come out.

I think it's pretty cool that we have two world-class versions of Sherlock Holmes being produced at the same moment in time. They are different enough that

Sherlock > Elementary

LOVE Sherlock. Great way to modernize the material. Wouldn't mind seeing a movie with Cumerbatch and Freeman, but not until Downey Jr.'s Holmes series is finished.

Lure them with a movie

The series is fantastic. If they can't make the series work, just change the format to feature films, which each episode basically is already.
