The cancellation rumor of Sherlock Season 5 was not at all vague. It is yet to receive an official renewal update from BBC One. Based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective stories, Sherlock will feature Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson as the protagonists. Read the texts below to get the latest updates on this series.

Sherlock Season 5 has several possibilities to return on the small screens. Some time back, the series creator Steven Moffat stated that it is unlikely for the show to disappear entirely. Another series creator Mark Gatiss repeated similar thing in another media conversation some time back.

Many series lovers consider Sherlock Season 5 will not return. Simply finishing the show with rightly demonstrating the ends or unravelling the previous cliffhangers will be injustice and breaking hearts of many. Based on several reports, Season 5 is actually not cancelled and there is a chance of making it. But it will not be released in 2020.

In Sherlock Season 5, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and series creator Mark Gatiss will surely return to play the roles of Sherlock Holmes, Dr John Watson and Holmes’ elder brother Mycroft.

On the other hand, Sherlock Season 5 is likely to bring a conclusion to The Walking Dead actress Eleanor Matsuura’s character Detective Inspector Stella Hopkins. She was introduced in previous season’s premiere episode titled ‘The Six Thatchers’. She was seen visiting Baker Street apartment and sending a notion to assist Sherlock, the character always played by Benedict Cumberbatch. But after that, as she was not invited, there surely lies a gap in the plot which makes a sensible chance for her in the series.

“They’re few and far between, the discussions about Sherlock, just because Mark [Gatiss] and Steven [Moffat], the writers, and Benedict [Cumberbatch] and I, are all lucky enough to be not only working on stuff that we like and are interested in, but we know what Sherlock is. You don’t look that gift horse in the mouth cause that sort of stuff doesn’t happen very often, in someone’s life. It’s a huge, huge, worldwide hit, and way beyond anything we could’ve imagined,” Martin Freeman said.

On the other hand, Benedict Cumberbatch earlier denied all rumours surrounding his discontinuation including the making of Sherlock Season 5. “Nobody has ever closed the door on Sherlock,” he said. In a recent interview of Martin Freeman by Collider, he said that “not only he, but Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are super busy and that’s the reason they do not want to run the risk of ruining the show’s legacy by producing a subpar season. Indirectly, he had given a hint for the making of Season 5.”

A few months back Digital Spy reported the presence of The Widow-actress Louise Brealey in the Season 5. The 40-year old actress, Louise Brealey is best known for playing Molly Hooper in Sherlock. However, we need to wait for a long time to know more about the plot, cast and crew and release date.
