If there’s one thing that would bring relief during the ongoing pandemic, it will be some official and extraordinary news about the fifth season of Sherlock Holmes. The last season of the brilliant detective show aired in January 2017. After that, there has been no information regarding the continuation of the show.

Throughout its feature (around seven years), the show has garnered numerous accolades and has been praised for its writing, direction, and acting.
Sherlock Holmes Season 5: When Will It Release? Who Is in the Cast?
There has been no official date set for a release. However, the season has not been canceled, so we can expect the fifth season to release in 2022 or 2023. It might take some time for the filming to begin as it seems that Cumberbatch is going to be packed with Doctor Strange 2, which will also be releasing in 2022.
Undoubtedly, the cast will be back with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman taking up the lead roles as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, respectively. Additionally, a character that might return is Sherlock Holmes’ sister Eurus Holmes (whom he didn’t remember). Sian Brooke, who plays Eurus, told Express.co.uk, ‘It would be great, she is a character I would love to revisit. You don’t get to play these parts every day, she’s abnormal, and those sorts of parts are always great’.
Sherlock Holmes Season 5: What Will the Plot Entail? Is There a Trailer?
Season five will most definitely pick up where the fourth one left. It showed Eurus as a master manipulator who has killed Holmes’ childhood best friend, ‘Redbeard.’ She has been put back into her confinement unit. Season four also the reconciliation of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. So, season five might follow more adventures of the duo together or might explore them individually.
There is no official date, trailer, or news for the fifth season. However, a third Sherlock Holmes movie is in the making which will release in 2021, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.
