Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of the BBC’s very popular SHERLOCK, has confirmed that he and co-star Martin Freeman are signed on for a fourth season of SHERLOCK, but he seems to hedge his bets about what that actually means.
“We’ve agreed to two more [series] but I could get into trouble for saying that,” revealed Cumberbatch at the South Bank Show Awards this afternoon.
“All I know at the moment is we’re doing these three [episodes of the upcoming series] and another three. I just don’t know what there is beyond that.”
He then added:
“It just depends on Martin and I’s availability, how long we can keep it going. It depends on Steven’s ability. I’d love to keep it going.”
I guess it’ll all depend on their movie careers. Cumberbatch has a big role in the upcoming “Star Trek Into Darkness” and Freeman, of course, is flying high from the “Hobbit” franchise.
