Benedict Cumberbatch has indicated that the forthcoming fourth season of Sherlock could be his last.
In an interview with GG, the English actor described his current feeling about the show as being the “end of an era“.
“It goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately,” he said
However, whilst Cumberbatch’s stardom has grown ever bigger is recent years he does say he’d love to go back to the character if schedules permitted.
“We never say never on the show,” he continued. “I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that, but in the immediate future we all have things that we want to crack on with and we’ve made something very complete as it is, so I think we’ll just wait and see. The idea of never playing him again is really galling.”
Season 4 of Sherlock arrives on TV screens sometime in 2017.
