Late last month, August 2015, there were rumors regarding cancellation of the show’s 4th Season. That was a disturbing news for fans. However, we are here to assure you that those were only rumors, and according to the latest, Sherlock Season 4 will premier in year 2017. Yes, we understand it has been a long wait, and it is longer still, but anything is better than the rumors that it cancel right? There’s no way any one of the fans is ready to let go of Dear Mr. Watson, and of course Sherlock.
So according to certain reports, the co-creator of the show, Mark Gatiss, had some bad news about Sherlock Season 4,
I have some bad news regarding ‘Sherlock.’ I know that we have promised you a fourth season time and time again, but at this point in time, this is not a prioritization that BBC can make in the near future.
Turns out, it was totally untrue. Gatiss himself addressed the statement in mentioned above, and confirmed that it was not he who said it. He was kind enough to explain further that Sherlock Season 4 will be continuing on BBC as per schedule. So you can breathe now. Sherlock Season 4 is expected to go into production next year. Steven Moffat, co-creator of the show, said the season will have a darker theme. Darker than Moriarty? Wow, those guys are not making the wait easy, especially with all the uncomfortable rumors that keep flying about. The wait is long, but there is another good news. There is going to a special episode which will be released before Sherlock Season 4. The episode is set in the Victorian Era so that will be interesting. Please note that the episode has nothing to do with the upcoming season and is just a stand-alone episode.
Now here’s a theory. As is the case with Sherlock always, Sherlock Season 4 has been scheduled for release with a precise date so many times, and then it’s rescheduled. Frustration and annoyance on part of fans is quite understandable. Do you think the rumors were some sort of a publicity stunt? I mean who can be mad at a delayed release when you just find out that the show is not being cancelled right? Do let us know what you think in the comments below.
