Steven Moffat talks ‘Sherlock’ season 4 and season 5 scripts, surprises

BBC One’s hit show Sherlock is now airing in the US on PBS Masterpiece. Now the show’s creator Steven Moffat discusses the show’s future, looking ahead to two more seasons, juggling the schedules of stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and getting the show moving by Christmas.

Martin Freeman Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock season 3“…it’s a matter of when everyone’s available, and when Mark [Gatiss] and I think we’ve got a strong enough script.  We’re quite picky.  We want every episode of Sherlock to be really, really good.  That’s our ambition.  We don’t have to make a million episodes.  We have to make some very, very good ones.  The moment we drop that idea, it will stop being what it is.”

So, Moffat addresses what the plans are for a fourth season and beyond.

“It’s really [Season] 4 that we’ve got, but it throws forward to a terrifying [Season] 5.  It wasn’t a planned thing.  We had just got out of the rain and because we don’t have the lovely big trailers that Benedict and Martin have, we had to go sit in the accountancy department and we just talked about what we could do.  We just started having what I think are the best set of ideas we’ve ever had.  I think they’re just wild.  And when I say ideas, it’s what stories we’ll tackle, what big twists there will be, what gut punches there will be, and what surprises there will be, and I think it’s really exciting.”
