Season five of Sherlock could still be coming to Netflix along with also the BBC following the founders bleed more episodes.

When will Sherlock season 5 be released?

There’s not an official release date for a new collection of Sherlock however we could expect the show to arrive in 2022 or 2023.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman take the lead roles in the show, which ended back in 2017.

Co-showrunner Steven Moffat advised Digital Spy: “I haven’t thought about it. Mark [Gatiss, co-showrunner]’s been doing other stuff also, so we haven’t sat down and had a proper talk about what we would do with a different series.”

Moffat and fellow creator Mark Gatiss said they’ve been searching into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original stories for further inspiration.

During a question and answer session to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Sherlock’s introduction, the founders discussed what type of direction the main characters could take.

Who will be in the cast of Sherlock season 5?

Of course it is hoped Benedict Cumberbatch will return as the primary character, and he will be joined by Martin Freeman as Watson.

In the past show we fulfilled Sherlock’s sister Eurus Holmes (played by Sian Brooke) that Sherlock himself didn’t remember existed.

What will happen in the new series of Sherlock?

The new series should pick up where we left off, with Eurus Holmes back in the confinements of her protected unit.

The season four finale, The Final Problem, shown Eurus to be an expert manipulator who receives excitement from raping her detective brother.

Sherlock also found how she’d actually killed his very best buddy ‘Redbeard’ as a young child, having remembered the story very differently for all those years.

Both Sherlock and Watson stay partners at the end of the series, so all three characters could have their very own stories within the next show.

The creators have demonstrated an interest in the narrative called the Red-Headed League, which sees Professor Moriarty (Andrew Scott) attempt to rob a bank.
