The television series Sherlock was initially released in 2010 with three episodes. It is based on the book Sherlock Holmes detective stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The series features Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John H. Watson, the crime-solving duo who go on various adventures solving mysteries. Since then, the series has come out with four seasons totaling 13 episodes. The last season was released in 2017. However, there is no official news regarding season 5, whether it will be renewed or not? If it is renewed, we might expect to see it in 2023.
There will be a long delay as producers still have to discuss the renewal of the series, and Benedict Cumberbatch is busy filming for Marvel Universe. The show was rumored to be canceled right after season 3, but producers surprised fans with season 4, now since there is no official news of cancellation fans are still expecting more.
If the series decides to be renewed, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will, of course, return as Sherlock Holmes and John H. Watson. There is no official news on any other cast member. But based on the previous season, we always get to see new faces with every episode.
There is no official news on the plot either, but looking at the patterns from previous seasons, we expect to see three episodes with the first episode drawing a connection to the previous season. All one can do is wait for the trailer to predict the plot of season 5. We expect to see new villains and new adventures.
We hope to see the producers renew the series as it has been an all-time favorite of detective show fans. Sherlock fans want more of this mind-blowing series, and we all cannot wait to see what other tricks he has got of his sleeve!
