Sherlock season 3 is kicking some ass, and I already can't wait to see what is in store for the fourth season! The final episode of the third season is called The Last Vow, and it's set to air on January 12th.
After a screening of that final episode, Moffat said that he didn't see the point in making a Sherlock movie when he could basically develop three feature-length new episodes, which he is planning on doing a fourth time! According to Radio Times, the series showrunner revealed that the scripts for season four are already being planned. Here's what Moffat said,
"Rather excitingly, Mark and I, for no particular reason, we just got out of the rain and sat at the top of the [Sherlock] production bus… and we just started plotting out what we could do in the future."
"And we plotted out the whole of series four and five."
“So we have got plans – but our plans don’t tend to be ‘Let’s blow up the world or cast the most famous person in the world’ they tend to be ‘What exciting twists and turns can we add to this?’ And I think we’ve got some crackers!
"The ideas we had that day, I thought were the best we’ve ever had."
I can't wait to see how season 3 ends, and how season 4 begins! This has been such a brilliant series, and I hope it goes beyond a fourth season.
