How people think of Harry Potter when the word magic comes out. In the same way, people will get the thought of Sherlock Holmes whenever they encounter the word of crime, cases and related stuff. Sherlock is one of the highly-rated series streamed on Netflix. Long back season 4 has released. From then fans are eagerly waiting for the fourth season.
Slight out-casting the plot :
Nothing can be known about the plot what so ever. That is why the series has been so successful besides the terrific characterisation of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The director of this show, Steven Moffat has stated in his Facebook post that Dr Watson is now Doyle’s brave widower and Sherlock Holmes has become the wise and humane version of the main run of the stories. He termed first four seasons as Part 1. So part 2 starts with this season 5.
Benedict Cumberbatch has said that he would love to play the characters as an older man. So we can expect that the Sherlock season 5 will be similar to that attempted in the 2015 film Mr Holmes, starring Ian McKellen as the detective in his old age. So the season 5 would bring in the vibes of the 2015 movie.
Cast and release speculation :
Undoubtedly Benedict Cumberbatch and Mertin Freeman will be reprising their roles of Sherlock Holmes and Dr.Watson.The duo interaction and chemistry is the key driving thing for the series. Along with them, the confirmed supporting cast includes Sian Brooke and Mark Gatiss as of now. No other report has come about the casting till now.
The way season 4 has ended, season 5 will be definitely in the cards. But no update has come from neither Netflix nor the team. So considering all the factors out it can be speculated that the fifth season will hit Netflix somewhere in 2022 and 2023.
