To be honest, neither the cast nor the crew appears to be hopeful about the prospect of another season. Scott who played the role of criminal said in an interview with Digital Spy that season 5 was unlikely to come to fruition. He also said that it’s not sure that, he will return in the next season. It may or may not be possible for him.
Another star cast, Martin Freeman says in an interview with Collider that,”They are few and far between, the way the story went, in the last series, felt like, if not a full stop, then certainly a semicolon or an ellipse. It felt like a pause”. On the other hand, Sian Brooke seems more optimistic about her role as Sherlock’s sister.
So, it’s very clear that the cast is not sure about Sherlock Season 5, and when actually it’s releasing.
Though there will be no proper press release about the cast from the officials, it’s hoped that Benedict Cumberbatch will return as the main character. He will be joined by Martin Freeman as Watson. Most probably Sian Brooke also returns as Sherlock’s sister.
In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk Sian Brooke said she would love to come back to play Eurus.
When Sherlock season 5 may be released?
There is no official news or official statement regarding the release of season 5. But we can expect the show to come to the box office in the year 2022 or in early 2023.
Sherlock Season 5 Update
Sherlock is a home for every person, yup home because it keeps us binging their episodes again and again. The plotline, the actor, the performance, and thrills, it’s all mind-blowing. Season 4’s ending gave us hope that maybe there will be a season 5. We left off Season 4 with Holme’s childhood and with Doctor John dealing with his issues.
This Season will most probably focus on Doctor John and maybe on Holmes’ childhood a bit more deeply. After today’s announcement by BBC, it’s still said to be hanging by the maker’s hand but it can neither be canceled nor renewed for now. Hence, be excited because it will be coming back one way or the other.
