Sherlock Season 5: The viewers around the globe have a huge number of uncleared doubts for the fifth season of ‘Sherlock’. Their curiosity is becoming more intense as about more than a time period of three years has passed after its last installment i.e. the fourth season premiered. (check: Classroom of the Elite Season 2.)
As its broadcast network i.e. BBC is still silent about the latter, all we were able to hear till now were some direct statements by this detective drama’s showrunner who are Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis. The only major source to answer our queries are all of their announcements till now.
The most significant reason that forces the viewers to believe that there would be no fifth season of ‘Sherlock’ is that even after about three years of the release of the last season, there are still no more updates about the pre-production tasks going on and the BBC network maintaining their silence.
These circumstances are surely capable enough to make many of the fans believe that the fifth season of ‘Sherlock’ might be cancelled.
Clearing rumors about its cancellation:
It sounds like the fifth season of ‘Sherlock’ is not cancelled yet. We were able to come up with this conclusion because, though, the upcoming season has been put on a hold for quite a long time but the production house did not come up with an announcement confirming its cancellation till now.
In addition to this, there are many other reasons which are resulting in the delay of the release of the new season of the series as per the statements made by Moffat and Gattis. The makers admitted about their interest to continue the series with more seasons but they are just not able to give much required time to it because of their present ongoing projects.
The opinion of the makers about the upcoming season 5 of ‘Sherlock’:
They revealed that they preferred as well as needed to give full attention and time to the fifth season when they would start its production process and they were not able to figure out these necessary conditions from the last three years when the last season concluded till now.
It is obviously possible for them to keep their other works aside for a while and begin the production process for the fifth season of ‘Sherlock’ but if they do so, then they would have to struggle with the super busy schedules of the main protagonists and cast from the show who are already occupied with the shooting of their other series and even movies.
In an formal interview with the Digital Spy, Moffat disclosed that he actually has not considered anything significantly about the fifth season of ‘Sherlock’.
He also admitted that as Mark is also occupied with other things, they really were not able to extract out and manage some quality time to sit together and discuss properly about what exactly they could do with this another new season this time.
In one more interview, Moffat made another statement that he and Mark Gattis do actually desire to make the fifth season of ‘Sherlock’. He knew that the fans were looking forward eagerly for it and they also intended to complete their desire in the shortest time period possible but it was not that easy for them as it might sound to be.
They made a promising statement saying that after they could get done with their existing busy schedule for their ongoing projects, nothing would stop them from starting working on the fifth season of ‘Sherlock’.
