When will be Season 5?
Moffat had earlier talked about the possibility of the fifth season, but no confirmation on the release dates and details was made. Fans all over the world are waiting eagerly for the 5th season of the famous series. We could always hope for the best and expect a new season shortly of 2021 or 2022.
The cast will include Benedict Cumberbatch as the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as his best friend, Dr. Watson. The return of Mark Gatiss as the elder brother Mycroft is highly anticipated.
However, there is no certainty that Sian Brooke, who played Eurus Holmes, the genius sister, in the last season, will return in the upcoming one. But there is a considerable possibility. There is no confirmation regarding the other casts of the show.
The last episode of the previous season left many things unanswered, and the fans are eager to follow the trails. So it is safe to assume that season 5 will pick where Season 4left. A fresh perspective on the world of the three Holmes siblings can bring some clarifications after the cliff-hanger last episode of the previous season. The plot can take an unpredictable turn.
The only thing we can do now is to wait for the new season and hope it comes as soon as possible and settles our burning questions. Fingers crossed!
