At a Sherlock event on Tuesday night, organized by the Royal Television Society in London, series creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss teased what’s to come in series 4 of the detective drama.
Perhaps most surprising out of the event is this from The Hollywood Reporter: Sherlock series 4 is “expected” to debut in 2016, which obviously is a long wait and conflicts another report in January that said the show could be ready by this Christmas 2014.
BBC controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson was also on hand at Tuesday’s event with Sherlock’s creators, which may lend credence to 2016 being an accurate timeframe. While no one is quoted in THR’s report, the creators do talk about the difficulty with scheduling because of the popularity of the show’s stars, Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson).
