Back in 2014, the creators of the show announced the fifth series, and here is everything you need to know about it.
Sherlock Season 5 Plot
The upcoming series will pick up where it left in the last season, with Eurus Holmes safely back in the confinements of her secure unit.
In the season four finale, The Final Problem revealed Eurus to be an expert manipulator who gets thrills from taunting her detective brother.
Sherlock also discovered how she had killed his best friend ‘Redbeard’ as a child, having remembered the story very differently for all those years.
Both Sherlock and Watson remain companions until the end of the series, so hopefully, all the characters will have their own stories.
Sherlock Season 5 Cast
Benedict Cumberbatch will surely return as the main character and he will be joined by Martin Freeman as Watson.
There is a possibility that Sian Brooke will also return in season 5. Other than these the characters list has not been shared by the creators.
There has been no official announcement for the launch of its trailer. Trailers do not usually drop until a couple of months before a show is due to air, so fans could be waiting for some time.
Release Date of Season 5
There is no official release date for season 5 of Sherlock but we can expect the show to be released either in 2022 or 2023.
Stay tuned for more updates.
