We’re still waiting to hear if there will be a Sherlock season 5, but the woman behind Mrs. Hudson is game for it.
Speaking in a new interview with The Sun, Una Stubbs had the following to say on the BBC series:
“We’re waiting to hear if there will be more Sherlock. The boys [Benedict and co-star Martin Freeman] are so busy. I’d be game for more. They’d have to hurry up, though – I’ve said that Mrs Hudson would need a Zimmer frame!”
In some ways, you can argue that Stubbs’ comments are by and large the status quo when it comes to Sherlock. We’ve heard the statements many times over and in many different forms and from many different people. We know that there is some room to tell more stories within this world, mostly because season 4 closed off in a way that brought Holmes and Watson perhaps closer to where they are in some of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle source material. There are so many more stories that have yet to be adapted.
The first order of business in making a Sherlock season 5 happen is actually not getting the actors back; as great as they are, you cannot do another season without scripts! Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have to get together new ideas, and that may be harder than you would imagine given that the two of them are each constantly working on other things. Heck, at the moment Moffat may be in the midst of a rather enormous nap following the end of Doctor Who.
Once those scripts are together, maybe production can begin with the cast if everyone finds the time to get together and do it. Remember that, for now, Sherlock season 5 doesn’t look as though it will premiere until at the earliest 2019 or 2020 … if it happens at all. We hope that you’re all the patient type!
