Those who have watched the previous four seasons of Sherlock — a British crime television series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories — have been eagerly waiting to watch the fifth season of Sherlock. There have been reports suggesting that Sherlock Season 5 will be released soon.
In the article, we will be talking about everything about Sherlock Season 5 such as its cast, trailer, plot, story, release date and spoilers.
When will Sherlock season 5 be out on Netflix & BBC?
The makers of the web TV series have not announced the release date of Sherlock season 5 yet. It is likely that the 5th season of Sherlock will be released in between in 2022 or 2023. The last season of Sherlock was out in 2017 and it is Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman played the lead roles.
Before we proceed further, you should know that the makers of the show have not yet started shooting for Sherlock season 5. However, Sherlock 5 will most likely to arrive in the next few years.
Speaking about the upcoming Sherlock season, Co-showrunner Steven Moffat told Digital Spy: “I haven’t really thought about it. Mark [Gatiss, co-showrunner]’s been doing other stuff as well, so we haven’t sat down and had a proper talk about what we would do with another series.”
Who will be in the cast of Sherlock season 5?
It is expected that Benedict Cumberbatch will be returning to the series as the main character and he will be joined by none other than Martin Freeman as Watson. In the last season, we were introduced with Sherlock’s sister Eurus Holmes (played by Sian Brooke) who Sherlock himself did not remember existed.
In a conversation with Express.co.uk Sian Brooke said that she would love to come back to play Eurus.
She said: “It would be great, she is definitely a character I would love to revisit. You don’t get to play these parts every day, she’s abnormal and those sorts of parts are always great.
“She doesn’t respond or behave the way others do. I get asked questions about what would happen next to her. There is definitely more to the mind of that character,” she added.
What will happen in the new series of Sherlock?
The plot and story of Sherlock Season 5 can not be imagined becuase the makers of the series have not dropped the trailer of Sherlock season 5 as of now. It is likely that they will continue the story where the last season ended.
In the last season, we saw that Eurus to be an expert manipulator who gets thrills from taunting her detective brother. Sherlock also found out how she had actually murdered his best friend ‘Redbeard’ as a child, having remembered the story very differently for all those years.
Is there a trailer for Sherlock season 5?
Unfortunately, the trailer of Sherlock season 5 is yet to be out. Netflix actually does not drop the trailer until a couple of months before the movie or series is due to streaming on its platform. So, fans of Sherlock will have to wait a little more to watch Sherlock season 5 trailer.
Till then, you can watch the trailer of Sherlock season 4 or watch the previous season streaming on Netflix.
