There’s not any official release date to get a new collection of Sherlock however we could expect the series to arrive in 2022 or 2023.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman take the lead roles in the series, which ended back in 2017.
Co-showrunner Steven Moffat advised : “I haven’t thought about it. Mark [Gatiss, co-showrunner]’s been doing other stuff as well, so we have not sat down and had a proper share of what we could do with a different series.”
Moffat and fellow creator Mark Gatiss stated they’ve been looking into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original stories for additional inspiration.

During a question and answer session to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Sherlock’s introduction, the founders discussed what sort of direction the key characters would take.
Who will be in the cast of Sherlock season 5?
Of course it’s expected Benedict Cumberbatch will go back as the primary character, and he will be joined by Martin Freeman as Watson.
In the past series we met Sherlock’s sister Eurus Holmes (played by Sian Brooke) who Sherlock himself did not recall existed.
In an exclusive interview with Sian Brooke stated she would like to come back to play Eurus.
She said: “It would be great, she is undoubtedly a character I’d really like to revisit. You don’t get to play these parts every day, she is unnatural and these kinds of components are always great.
“She does not respond or act how others do. I get asked questions about what would happen next to her. There’s definitely more to the mind of that character.”
What’s going to happen in the new series of Sherlock?
The new series should hopefully pick up where we left off, with Eurus Holmes safely back in the confinements of her protected unit.
The season four finale, The Final Problem, shown Eurus to be a professional manipulator who receives excitement from raping her detective brother.
Sherlock also discovered the way she had actually killed his very best buddy ‘Redbeard’ as a child, having remembered the story very differently for those years.
Both Sherlock and Watson stay companions at the close of the series, so all three characters could have their very own stories in the next series.
The creators have demonstrated an interest in the narrative known as the Red-Headed League, which sees Professor Moriarty (Andrew Scott) attempt to rob a bank.
