“I genuinely don’t know,” Cumberbatch says of new “Sherlock” episodes in an interview with the Adelaide Advertiser (re-quoted by the Radio Times). “That’s not me trying to be mysterious. None of us know if there will be a fourth, fifth or sixth series.”
Does that mean that Cumberbatch and the rest of the “Sherlock” stars could be done for good? While it isn’t likely, the actor does point out that he’s pretty much everywhere all the time these days.
Fortunately, the powers that be over at the BBC probably want to make sure that Cumberbatch comes back to the TV role that made him a huge star. It just might be tough to fit it in sometimes.
