"Sherlock" Season 4 is still a go as confirmed by show's producer, Steven Moffat, and explains Benedict Cumberbatch, plays Sherlock Holmes, was misunderstood in his recent interview. Meanwhile, Tom Hiddleston is seen with the series' cast in this year's Comic-Con photo ops. This led fans to speculate the actor will be joining the show as Holmes' new sidekick.
Co-producer Steven Moffat showed his disappointment by the way Cumberbatch was misinterpreted in one of his recent interviews. He explains that the actor was not talking about the end of the series. "If you just look at what (Benedict) actually says, he says nothing of the kind...he actually says he's very keen to carry on playing Sherlock Holmes" he added. Moffat also clarified that Cumberbatch only said that season 4 will be hard to follow but that does not mean he is no longer interested in continuing with the series.
However, when the producer was asked what fans should look forward to in the future for the series, he reveals "We haven't even put the new series out yet. We haven't talked to the BBC about another run," but assures fans not to worry about anything. Gatiss also hints that Freeman and Cumberbatch are irreplaceable, dismissing the rumor of them being replaced.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift's ex is believed to be joining the "Sherlock" Season 4 cast after seeing him in the photo ops of the series. Moreover, it can be remembered that Mycroft Holmes, played by Mark Gatiss, hinted that there could be another sibling to come saying "I'm not given to outbursts of brotherly compassion. You know what happened to the other one." If a third sibling does exist, choosing Tom Hiddleston to portray him is a very good choice.
Season 4 of the series is scheduled to air on BBC in 2017. That should be enough time for the production to finish filming the show, particularly since the production is having a hard time to shoot due to conflicting schedule of the crew and cast.
