Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he has already signed on for a fourth series of Sherlock.

Speaking to the Radio Times, the Star Trek actor said he and Martin Freeman would be filming season three very soon and that a fourth series was also in the works.

“We’ve agreed to two more series but I could get into trouble for saying that,” Cumberbatch said. “All I know at the moment is I’m doing these three [episodes of the upcoming series] and another three.”

Cumberbatch went on to say that he’d love to see the show even go beyond season four, but it all depends on the schedules of the actors as well as co-creator Steven Moffat, who is also running Doctor Who.

Filming for the first two episodes of season three begin next week and go up until the summer, at which point the actors will take a break and then return later this year to film the final episode.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
