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.
