BBC teases Season 4 of Sherlock, promising there will not only be three new episodes but a “special” as well.
As of now, no date has been announced though producers have announced to begin filming in January and are speculating for a late 2015 release.
The busy schedules of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman may delay Sherlock’s Season 4 premiere release. Cumberbatch is currently working on his character, Smaug the Dragon, for the Hobbit trilogy. In addition to the Hobbit, Cumberbatch may take on another character for another movie. Sherlock‘s producer is not worried about the possible schedule conflicts with his actors and tells reporters that they will do what they can without sacrificing the quality of the show.
A Sherlock Holmes exhibit at the Museum of London will display many items linked with the literary character – including the coat and dressing gown worn by the actor in the BBC series Sherlock.
Mark Gatiss, co-writer of Sherlock, confirms that there will be a fourth season of the show. He reveals that production dates are nearly fixed and that shooting dates are close to being agreed upon. Due to the popularity and demand for Sherlock stars – Cumberbatch and Freeman – it is likely that the show will air some time in 2016.
