Sherlock Season debuted on BBC on 25th July 2010. Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, the British crime TV series is based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Over the years, the BBC has presented us with various new TV series. These include the like of Peaky Blinders, Dragon’s Den, Band Of Brothers, and many more. However, the BBC set a benchmark with Sherlock.
Sherlock is a modern-day reimagining of the characters from Sherlock Holmes. The show revolves around Sherlock Holmes, an eccentric individual with an eye for solving crimes. Dr. Watson finds himself sharing a room with Sherlock. The show follows their journey as they take on the most unusual cases.
Sherlock has been officially renewed for Season 5. Here is what we know so far:
Sherlock Season 5 Release Date?
The release schedule for Sherlock has been very irregular. Season 4 ended way back in 2017. The new season will be coming to both Netflix and BBC. However, there has been NO official announcement regarding the release date for the new season. The status of production, script, and filming is also unknown. In the wake of the chaos caused by the pandemic, the filming for Season 5 won’t start anytime before 2021. Therefore, we can expect the new season to release in 2022 or 2023
What To Expect From The New Season?
Season 4 finale made us look afresh at the character or Jim Moriarty. Was he a frontman for Eurus? Is he dead? Well yes, Moriarity is officially dead. When he shot himself on the roof of Bart’s Hospital, he really did kill himself. But it wasn’t all his idea
Season 5 is expected to pick up after the events of the previous season. Season 4 saw Eurus Holmes being sent back to a secure unit. When Jim Moriarty was introduced, we thought that Sherlock finally found his nemesis. Moriarty is considered as an opponent worthy of Sherlock and who came closer to destroying him than anyone else’s. However, season 4 had something else in store for us. Season 4 revealed that it was Eurus who killed Sherlock’s childhood best friend Redbeard. So it looks like Season 5 will see more of Sherlock and Eurus as the story progresses.
As we know, Eurus is an expert manipulator who enjoys taunting her brother. But will the Detective be able to manage to counter these manipulations? Only Season 5 can answer this

- Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock
- Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson
- Sian Brooke as Eurus
- Rupert Graves as Greg
- Una Stubbs as Mrs. Hudson
