Will Sherlock end after Series 4?


BBC’s ‘Sherlock’ may be about to come to an end…

During an interview with GQ Magazine, Benedict Cumberbatch hinted that the upcoming Series 4 might be the end for the long-running ‘Sherlock’.

“It might be the end of an era,” he said of the next three episodes. “It feels like the end of an era, to be honest.” He also added that show feels ‘very complete’ as it is.

The 40-year-old British actor made a name for himself as ‘Sherlock’ - the modern-day version of the legendary detective, Sherlock Holmes.

But while he’s hinted that the show may come to an end, he also admitted that he could never say no to reprising the role… and that may give fans hope that he could always return for one more special.

“I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it – I stand by that,“ he said. "The idea of never playing him again is really galling… 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.”


Of course, Cumberbatch isn’t the only one to hint at an impending end for ‘Sherlock’ with showrunner Steven Moffat admitting that he doesn’t know what will come of the show after Series 4.

“I don’t know how long we can keep it going,” he admitted. “I would be moderately surprised if this was the last time we ever made this show – but it absolutely could be.”

Either way, we still have an entire series yet to go.

Whether or not it will be the last, remains to be seen.

‘Sherlock’ returns to BBC One in 2017.
