Is 'Sherlock' Ending? Showrunner Clarifies Benedict Cumberbatch's Season 4 Comments

Benedict Cumberbatch‘s comments on the future of Sherlock indicated that it may end with season four, upsetting fans of the show.

“It might be the end of an era,” he was quoted as saying (via EW). “It feels like the end of an era, to be honest. [Season 4] goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately. We never say never on the show. I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that. But in the immediate future, we all have things that we want to crack on with and we’ve made something very complete as it is, so I think we’ll just wait and see.

Showrunner Steven Moffat is now saying Benedict was misquoted,

“This is really worth saying because it’s getting exhausting for us all. That’s not what Benedict said,” Steven said. “That’s what someone edited his words into the meaning of. It seems to be impossible these days not to be misquoted. He was quite specific about being keen to carry on. He went on to say he’s hard to get us all together. We want to keep the quality up. We haven’t even seen this [season air] yet. We don’t know. We haven’t sat down with the intent to anything yet. But we’re always aware that it could be over. But the fact is Benedict did not say that.”

The fourth season debuts on January 1 on PBS.

Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman Are Back For 'Sherlock' Special Trailer - Watch Now!

Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman) take a trip to the Victorian era in this first official trailer for the highly-anticipated upcoming Sherlock special!

“We discovered there was some precedent for doing Sherlock in the Victorian era,” executive producer Steven Moffat recently told EW. “When we first did Sherlock, press asked, ‘How can Sherlock possibly survive in world with an iPhone?’ and when doing the Victorian, the press came in and said, ‘How can he do this without his iPhone?’”

He added, “It’s very much the show you know. It’s the Sherlock as you know it, but in the correct era. It’s one of the best ones we’ve made. I think it’s really terrific.”

The hit BBC series Sherlock will air four new episodes in 2015 as part of the fourth season!

“A special, plus a new series of three episodes — it’s a record-breaking run! Of course, it’s far too early to say what’s coming, but we’re reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you’d expect,” Stephen Moffat, co-creator and executive producer said in a statement (via Variety).

“Series Four! At last! It’s always special to return to ‘Sherlock’ but this time it’s even more special as we’re doing… a Special! Not only THAT, we’ll then be shooting three more episodes which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before. The whole ‘Sherlock’ team are terrifically excited to return for four new adventures. The Game is on – again!” Mark Gatiss, co-creator and executive producer, added.

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Sherlock and Martin Freeman stars as Dr. John Watson in the hit television show. If you need to catch up on episodes, they’re all on Netflix!
