MOVIE NEWS – The 5th season of Sherlock would be written by the creator of “Tomorrow”, but it would only happen if Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman agreed to the contract. In any case, Steven Moffat hopes they will return.
The co-creator of the Sherlock series, Steven Moffat, known for the revival of Doctor Who, has announced that he is ready for a new season of Sherlock if Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman sign the contract.
BBC’s Sherlock, an update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous Victorian detective now solving crimes in the modern world, has been a fan favorite almost from the start. Cumberbatch and Freeman, back in the days before the Marvel Cinematic Universe, led the way through updated versions of the well-known Sherlock Holmes stories.
The last series of Sherlock aired 5 years ago, and since then both leads have gone on to great success in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Freeman as CIA agent Everett Ross. Both became bona fide world stars and played together again in The Hobbit trilogy, with Freeman playing Bilbo Bilbo and Cumberbatch playing the dragon Smaug. In an interview with the BBC’s Today program promoting his new play for the West End, Moffat said he would “start writing tomorrow” if Cumberbatch and Freeman agreed to return. Moffat said: “They’re moving on to bigger and better things, but Martin and Benedict, ‘please come back?'”.
Sherlock, co-created by Moffat and Mark Gatiss, known for The League of Gentleman, started in 2010 and was an immediate success, not only among critics, but also among fans, who started loving the two characters almost as soon as the first episode premiered. . Over the years, the duo of curvaceous Sherlock Holmes played by Cumberbatch and serious John Watson of Freeman (his past as an Afghanistan war veteran is still sadly relevant in today’s world) have faced Irene Adler (Lara Pulver), who has been upgraded from an American actress to a British dominatrix, and Holmes’ number one nemesis at all not updated with Moriarty (Andrew Scott). Sherlock and Watson even came up against Holmes’ evil sister and a new character, Eurus Holmes (Sian Brook).
Sherlock Holmes, who has completely entered the public consciousness, has been adapted in several ways. Such is Guy Ritchie’s action film, in which Robert Downey Jr. plays the detective and Jude Law John Watson, the comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and he even appeared as an animated mouse in the movie The Great Mouse Detective. Created for Conan Doyle’s original short story The Scarlet Study, the character became so popular that when the fictional character was killed off (before later being brought back), people across England mourned. The popularity of the character has not decreased in the years since then. Just maybe not enough to lure movie stars back to the small screen for another round of Sherlock.
