Sherlock Season 5 is being highly anticipated by the fans. The fourth season of the series released way back in January 2017 and since then we have been waiting for another season.
Sherlock Season 5: Has The Series Been Renewed?
The popular BBC series has earned a warm response from the audience as well as the critics. So the series first premiered on July 2010 and with four amazing seasons this series turned out to be a massive success.
It has been three years since the fourth season was dropped and till now the makers have not uttered anything about Sherlock Season 5. But that does not mean that fifth season is not on the cards. Because BBC has not officially cancelled the series.
Also, the ending of the previous season was not satisfying and it did not really seem like the season finale of the series. Therefore we are still hoping for another season. One of the makers of this series Steven Moffat has recently stated in an interview that they have still not decided anything about the upcoming season.
He added that he needs to sit and discuss the plot with his co-showrunners. Therefore he has not completely ruled out the possibility of Sherlock Season 5. But even if we get another season, we cannot expect it anytime soon.
If sources are to be believed then the upcoming season might air by 2022 at the earlier. But before that, we need the series to be renewed officially.
Sherlock Season 5: Plot
As the name suggests the BBC series revolves around Sherlock Holmes and his tales of criminal investigations. The series has beautifully portrayed Sherlock’s character and his encounter with crime and criminals.
The chemistry between Holmes and his assistant Dr Watson is commendable. So in the previous season, there were major twists and turns. We witnessed many revelations surrounding Holmes’ life. We saw that he has a secret sister Eurus Holmes.
And she entered the show as the Virtuoso controller. So in Sherlock Season 5, it will be interesting to see if Sherlock and Eurus come together and solve some high profile cases. Also, the previous season has not depicted much about her character. So in the upcoming season, we can finally know Eurus properly.
Also, we can expect some dark secrets about Sherlock’s life to be revealed in the next season. The previous season has left us struggling with many questions. Therefore the makers should seriously consider Sherlock Season 5 so that we get the answer to the questions we were left with after the previous season.
