In a statement released to Collider, co-showrunner Steven Moffat teases the coming season.
“Sherlock series four — here we go again! Whatever else we do, wherever we all go, all roads lead back to Baker Street, and it always feels like coming home. Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson and terror and tragedy are looming. This is the story we’ve been telling from the beginning and it’s about to reach its climax.”
While this tease really doesn’t share a lot about the coming season, it definitely brings up a lot of questions. One does have to wonder what exactly is meant by the word “climax.” Is it implying that the show is coming to an end?
The official synopsis for the season is as follows:
“Season 4 begins with the mercurial Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch), back once more on British soil as Doctor Watson (Martin Freeman) and his wife Mary (Amanda Abbington) prepare for their biggest challenge yet: becoming parents.”
