The coming of sherlockSeason 5 remains to be seen, but the news emerging today hints the possibilities of its return. It has been said that its main stars’, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, busy schedules hinder the show’s continuation.

But, in an interview with BBC Radio 2, the show’s co-creator Steven Moffat told Chris Evans that a fifth chapter will definitely come sometime in the future. This is despite everyone’s contained timetables.

The return of Holmes

"We did [the last series] a year ago,” Steven Moffat said to Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2.

After that, he got so “flat-out” on “Doctor Who,” thus he hadn’t thought much about “Sherlock” Season 5. Mark Gatiss, too, is busy doing other things, so they really don’t have time to formally talk about making a new chapter of the television series.

In spite of this, he strongly believes that they will all return and once again work together for a new installment of the crime drama based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's “Sherlock Holmes” detective stories. “I sort of assume we'll come back," he said.

A possibility of a long wait

Moreover, in another interview with "The One Show, Andrew Scott, who plays the role of Moriarty, assumed that “Sherlock” Season 5 might return after two years.

"We're not doing [‘Sherlock’] for another couple of years,” he said.

The 40-year-old star said that everyone is so busy nowadays. So, as they want to keep the show fresh and anew, it might still take a lot of time before they finally create a new chapter.

In fact, he joked that another general election might happen before fans will finally see them return to the small screen.

Steven Moffat, on the other hand, said after the previous season ended that he is actually fine if there will be no more new episodes of the television series coming.

"It's been such a phenomenon,” he said in another interview with Digital Spy.

Of course, they have been rewarded for doing the television drama, but not doing it again won’t be a big problem. If that would be the last time fans will see the duo of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman together, then there is nothing that they could do.

He also added that none of them will be going to starve if they don’t do a new season, although he admitted he might go hungry.

Additionally, Mark Gatiss told Radio Times that they intentionally didn’t end the previous season finale with a “definitive ending.” This is to give way to their possible return in the near future, but they could just also leave it behind. “It really just depends,” he said
