Sherlock Season 5 or cancelled? Martin Freeman remains non-committal over continuing the BBC detective series beyond Season 4, leaving the future of the show in doubt, per EW:
Everyone involved in the show is acutely aware of how well-written it is and how well-produced it is. If you are on a show that is well-written, well-shot, well-scored, and you’re lucky enough to have chemistry with the person, that’s pretty cool. And that doesn’t come along every day. But at the same time, we do want to do other stuff. And thank God we’re all busy. [Co-creators] Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are busy. Everyone’s busy. I wouldn’t want to make any promises either way on that.
Freeman notes that ending Sherlock is something to be embraced:
I think things ending is not a thing to be afraid of. Can you imagine the Beatles now? Jesus. Certain things should end. I think everything is supposed to be finite. Who knows? I never really know once we’ve finished a series, because it takes a long time to make another one.
The fourth and potentially final season of Sherlock premieres Jan. 1, 2017 on BBC One and PBS.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Sherlock Season 5…
