The British crime detective series is coming with Sherlock season 5. The creators of this show are Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat. The series takes its inspiration from the detective stories of Sherlock Holmes. The stories are written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The series is written by Stephen Thompson, Steven Moffat, and Mark Gatiss. In this article, we are going to share everything you need to know about Sherlock Season 5.
Sherlock Season 5 Release Date
The makers of the show did not confirm a release date yet. However, we can be hopeful that Sherlock Season 5 can appear anytime between 2022 to 2033. Due to the global coronavirus pandemic that production has not begun yet. But we are optimistic that the shooting will start once the pandemic ends. However, it is going to be a very long wait.
Steven Moffat, in an interview, says, “I have not quite thought about it yet. Mark Gatiss has other commitments. And we did not get a chance to sit and talk about it properly. Therefore what we are going to do for another series is not yet decided”.
The Cast of Sherlock Season 5
Benedict Cumberbatch will continue his role as Sherlock Holmes. Along with him, Martin Freeman will join as Watson. Sian Brooke, in the last series, introduced herself as Erus Holmes, Sherlock’s sister. She might also reprise her role as well.
In an interview, Sian says, “I would love to play Erus again. It is one character that I would love to revisit. If I get a chance again, it will be great”. There might also be some new faces joining us. But as of now, we cannot be sure about anything. There has not been any official announcement.
There is no official announcement from the makers regarding the plot. But we can hope that Sherlock season 5 will continue from where it left. Erus Holmes will safely be back in the secure unit under confinements. The finale episode of season 4 reveals that Erus can be a master manipulator. She gets sadistic pleasure by taunting her brother.
Sherlock also discovers that she killed “Redhead” as a child. Watson and Sherlock both remain companions. So we can all hope that all these three characters will tell their stories in the next season. The creators, however, have given us a hint about a story. They show interest in “Red-Headed League”. This might also be a part of Sherlock season 5.
