Forget Elementary, More Sherlock on the way – Cumberbatch thumbs-up fourth series
If you can’t stop yourself from saying, “meh,” at the end of every episode of Elementary, it’s probably because you’re a fan of BBC’s grittier, more robust Sherlock series.
While CBS’s Sherlock Holmes, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, may lack the depth of Sherlock, it more than makes up for the void with its healthy, broadcast episode count.
After every short, three episode series of Sherlock, fans are always left waiting another year for more.
Thankfully, Sherlock and Star Trek star Benedict Cumberbatch has confirmed a fourth season of BBC’s acclaimed show.
According to the Radio Times, Cumberbatch said that both he and co-star Martin Freeman will return to sleuthing for a fourth go-round.
“We’ve agreed to two more series but I could get into trouble for saying that,” Cumberbatch said at the South Bank Show Awards.
Season 3 begins filming its 3-episode arc on March 18. Cumberbatch said that he has signed on for those three episodes (and if you know Sherlock, which you should, the episodes are more akin to 90-minute movies) and an additional three.
Sherlock returns for its third series this Fall.
