'Sherlock' Season 4 Updates: Benedict Cumberbatch, Steven Moffat Confess Upcoming Season Could Be The Last; Season 4 Release Date Confirmed
The world's favorite crime drama series "Sherlock" has given some good news to its fandom as it recently announced its comeback on Jan. 1, 2017. However, fans of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watsons might have to bid goodbye after "Sherlock" season 4 airs its episodes as lead star Benedict Cumberbatch and showrunner Steven Moffat had been hinting on the show's ending.
While the fans of "Sherlock" are celebrating for its return on BBC after almost three years of being on hiatus, recent reports have it that the upcoming season will already feature the show's ending. Rumors are also rife that Cumberbatch (Sherlock) has long been teasing that the upcoming season might just be the last. The actor is said to have indirectly relayed the bad news during his past interview with GQ magazine for its November issue.
It can be recalled that speculations about the show coming to its end started when the lead actor talked about an "end of an era" in his GQ interview. Furthermore, he admitted in another interview that the show already reached the point where it will be difficult to come up with a continuation after the finale of season 4. While Cumberbatch already addressed the misunderstanding, the recently revealed title of "Sherlock" season 4, episode 2 based on the series' official trailer has re-ignited the speculation.
The said episode titled "The Lying Detective" is said to adapt the story of "The Dying Detective" which is another piece written by Arthur Conan Doyle. The synopsis of this episode states that Sherlock will convince everyone that he is dying. This is then speculated to be a good turning point for the show to mark its ending.
Showrunner of "Sherlock," Steven Moffat is also reported to admit that the upcoming season could be the final run of the America-British crime flick. "I don't know how long we can keep it going. I'm personally willing but I'm hardly the main draw," Moffat told The Telegraph. "I would be moderately surprised if this was the last time we ever made this show. But it absolutely could be," he added. However, he also mentioned that the show has the potential to go on forever with its set up that it can go off airing episodes for years and be back again.
While there are no definite announcements yet released to address these concerns, fans might want to set aside their worries and enjoy the much anticipated return of their favorite crime drama on BBC. "Sherlock" season 4 is slated to air on Jan. 1, 2017.
