‘Sherlock’ season 4 likely for 2016 with more Molly, Mrs Hudson and the Moriarty plans

Sherlock fans are in a frenzy wanting a quick return for Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the famous detective duo, but Creator Steven Moffat hinted at a longer wait, more female characters or more face time for them and of course, confirmation that Moriarty was a planned surprise since season 2.

Sherlock banner Benedict Cumberbatch Martin FreemanAccording to a new report by enStarsz, Sherlock fans should expanded roles for the show’s female characters. Specifically, Moffat referred to Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey) and Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs) in a different interview.

“A female perspective on that friendship and on that man is incredibly telling, incredibly illuminating,” Moffat said. “So we’ve expanded hugely the part of Mrs. Hudson because she didn’t speak in the original. And we brought Molly in.”

Moffat suggested that Molly will be a part of the fourth season, saying that “every time we bring a woman into Sherlock, it works hugely well.”

Moffat continued to reassure fans that the Moriarty twist has been in the works and star Andrew Scott was well aware of the plans.

“… plan in place for Moriarty to appear again in the series since season 2, with Scott in on the plan as well…”

Fans may have to wait a long time to see the fourth season of Sherlock, much like every season.

Moffat said after the season 3 finale that it’s possible that the show won’t be on the air again for another two years, much like the first season’s debut in 2010, the second season in 2012 and the third in 2014.

Sherlock season 4 does not have a set premiere date yet, but it is expected to air in 2016.
