BBC Confirms ‘Sherlock’ Season 4 Will Film In 2015
Last weekend, “Sherlock” star Martin Freeman hinted that a “Sherlock” Christmas special was likely to premiere in 2015. Today, BBC revealed that Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are going to have a busy year.
“Sherlock” Season 4 has been officially announced, with both Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch reprising their roles as John Watson and Sherlock Holmes, respectively. The “Sherlock” Christmas special will be filmed early next year, with the three episode fourth season slated to begin production later in 2015.
This likely means that “Sherlock” Season 4 will premiere in 2016, after the 2015 Christmas special. That would be in line with the roughly two years between each season up to this point.
In the official announcement, “Sherlock” co-creator Steven Moffat said “A special, plus a new series of three episodes — it’s a record-breaking run!! Of course, it’s far too early to say what’s coming, but we’re reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you’d expect.”
Moffat’s co-creator, Mark Gatiss hinted that the fourth season of “Sherlock” will bring Sherlock and John “into deeper and darker water than ever before.”
The bad news for “Sherlock” fans in America is that PBS has shown little interest in releasing the new episodes simultaneously with their premieres in the United Kingdom. That means that the “Sherlock” Christmas special may not air until 2016 in the United States. The fourth season of “Sherlock” will probably also be shown several months after it’s debut on BBC One.
