Airdate for fourth season of Sherlock likely to be late 2016

The fourth season of Sherlock will not be recorded until 2016.

The BBC series might have confirmed five seasons for Sherlock, but the fourth season premiere is still some way off thanks to the high profile filming commitments of stars Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch.

We know that Christmas will see the broadcast of a special episode, a stand alone which has nothing to do with the rest of the season and which sees Sherlock Holmes and John Watson in a highly anticipated Victorian setting.

Series showrunner Stephen Moffat has just confirmed in a press conference at BATFA that the fourth season will not be recorded until the spring of 2016, which probably means we won’t see it before very late 2016 or early 2017.

Moffat has said that the fourth season will leave viewers desperate for the fifth season. “There are answers that come to questions that no one has made. There is one thing that no one has raised …”

Yes it’s without question one of the most popular fandom shows around but will everyone have moved on by the time we get to see it that’s the real question…
