‘Sherlock’ season 4: Benedict Cumberbatch continues to deny talk of series ending

Sherlock season 3We have a feeling that you are going to be seeing and hearing a lot from Benedict Cumberbatch over the course of the upcoming few weeks. After all, his new movie “Doctor Strange” is going to be coming out, and as a result of that we’re already anticipating that there will be an extensive publicity tour. We also know that he has an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” set for November 5, just a few days before the Presidential election takes place in America.

As some points along the way during this promotional tour, we figure that there is one conversation topic that is going to continue to come up time and time again: The future of “Sherlock.” In his latest comments on BBC Radio Two’s “The Chris Evans Breakfast Show,” Cumberbatch continued to dismiss his recent comments suggesting that the upcoming fourth season will be the last:

“This came from an arts desk or any kind of news outlet going, ‘Oh we really need a story’, so they sort of shipped out this quote which said that I said, ‘This is the last one’, which is not what I said. I said, ‘For the time being’. And you’ll see when you watch [the new, fourth season], that there’s a good reason why I said that.

“We won’t be doing one immediately after this one airs. That’s all I meant. We never ever say never on that show. We love doing it.”

Do these comments mean that there is some sort of big cliffhanger after the end of the fourth season? That remains to be seen, but we figure that there will be at least something that leaves open the possibility for more. After all, we have a hard time imagining that creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss would close the door on continuing the series so long as they felt that there was a road to continue putting it on the air.
