However, due to the pandemic, it is safe to say that fans have to be patient until late 2022 or early 2023.
According to Express, co-show-runner Steven Moffat told Digital Spy in an interview, “I haven’t truly thought about it [Sherlock season 5]. Mark’s [Gatiss, co-showrunner] also been engaged in other stuff. We haven’t got a chance to properly talk about if we want to do another series.”
Season 5 will be back without this important character
Sherlock Holmes and John Watson do not get along well! Yes, throughout the show, multiple rumours have been making rounds that Benedict Cumberbatch (who plays Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (John) do not share a close friendship off-set.
Their on-screen camaraderie does not transcend in real life, which has reportedly been a major concern for the network as it hampers the work environment. This is one of the reasons that Martin Freeman does not want to return to the sets of Sherlock.
Who will be in Sherlock season 5?
The last season of Sherlock introduced us to Eurus Holmes (Played by Sian Brooke), Sherlock’s sister, whom Sherlock himself did not know existed. In an interview with Express, Brooke expressed a keen interest in returning. She said, “She is a character I would definitely love to revisit. She’s abnormal, unpredictable, and complex. She doesn’t follow or behave as others do.”
“I often get asked questions about what would happen next to Eurus. You don’t get to play these roles every day,” Brooke expressed. Apart from Sian Brooke, Benedict Cumberbatch is also on-board for season 5. However, the cloud of uncertainty over whether Martin Freeman would be back as John Watson continues to linger.
