Sherlock Season Four Likely Two Years Away

As much as I love how British shows usually have short, but great seasons (called “series” over there), it’s not exactly the best when you have to say, wait two years for another three episodes of a show you love like Sherlock.

But that may be exactly what’s happening, given how busy everyone involved with the show is these days. Steven Moffat spoke to IGN about the possible lengthy wait:

“I have no idea. Sue’s working on the schedules right now. I just started with Capaldi on the new series of Doctor Who. You know, we’ll do what we can, but with no sacrifice in quality – that’s the thing. If people have to wait two years, they’ll have to wait two years.”

I understand that they’d rather wait a long time than rush out episodes that are sub-part, but it’s still frustrating to imagine waiting so long after we finished up season three of Sherlock in just three short weeks. It’s one of those shows you wish just had nine seasons ready to go on Netflix for you to watch in a week. But at this rate, it may be a decade before we see the whole series out in its entirety.
