Benedict Cumberbatch's success elsewhere could prove to be bad news for the show.
Don't be alarmed, but there's a possibility that 'Sherlock' won't be on our screens for much longer according to the show's executive producer Steven Moffat. Apparently, it hangs on the schedule of stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman - and the movie offers they're getting are only getting bigger.
Will 'Sherlock' series 4 be the last?
Moffat has even gone so far as to say the next series - set to air next year - could be the last if the actors contine to be as successful as they already are in the film industry. However, he also claims there's a chance that, even if it did get cancelled, there's no reason it won't be able to return in the future.

The Avengers are suffering from an image crisis. As much good that they do and as many lives that they save, the superheroes also cause unlimited amounts of damage to cities and civilisation. The government wish to find an answer to this problem and they decide that all superheroes should be registered and held accountable for their actions.
Tony Stark is brought in to begin talks on behalf of The Avengers, knowing how much damage he's personally done under his superhero disguise, Stark see the government's point and decides that a register wouldn't be entirely unwelcome. Captain America on the other hand has no such wishes; The Cap sees any government intervention as something beyond reasonable requirement. In the middle of all this is Cap's old friend Bucky who could be prosecuted under the new laws. As The Avengers are forced to split into two halves, it looks like there's going to be no way for the old team to form any kind of agreement.
As their opinions deepen and rivalries are deepens, certain members of Hydra begin to tighten their control and their plans for future domination of the world are getting stronger. The Avengers must find a way to put their differences aside in order to beat the real enemy.
Expect the next series to hit in 2017.
The fourth season of 'Sherlock' is finally on the way, even if we'll have to wait until next year to see it. We've been promised that Holmes will face demons from his past and his faithful companion Dr. Watson will have the responsibility of fatherhood on his shoulders this time.
We're still frustratingly oblivious to any real details on the forthcoming 3-episode series, and creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have done well in tying up loose ends in New Year's Day BBC special 'The Abominable Bride' to avoid any obvious speculation. That won't stop the die-hard fans though.

Although no broadcast date has yet been confirmed, the cast is now fully assembled and filming has begun on series four of 'Sherlock'.
Benedict Cumberbatch has said he’s “thrilled” to be back working on the series that made him a megastar, as filming for the long-awaited season four of ‘Sherlock’ finally gets under way.
Fans of the BBC series have been promised that “ghosts of the past” will visit the new three-part instalment, which will see 39 year old Cumberbatch return as the famous detective alongside Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson. The episodes will be directed by American Rachel Talalay, whose previous credits include The Wind in the Willows and ‘Doctor Who’.
“I can't wait for everyone to see season four,” Cumberbatch said on Wednesday (April 6th). “But you will have to wait… though not for long… and it will be worth it.” No broadcast date has yet been confirmed.

Following its broadcast on New Year's Day, the Victorian special has topped the box office in China and has outsold 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' in Korea by 4:1.
Though quite a few people have complained that it was too confusing, the ‘Sherlock’ special length episode ‘The Abominable Bride’ has become an international box office success in cinemas in addition to its high ratings on British television.
The feature-length episode, starring its regulars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprising their roles as Holmes and Watson but in the Victorian era of Arthur Conan Doyle’s original stories, received the highest viewing figures in Britain over the festive period when it was broadcast on New Year’s Day.

Nick Timothy, former special adviser to Home Secretary Theresa May, wrote an article imploring "vain and ignorant liberal luvvies" to take a "vow of silence" in 2016.
Outspoken celebrities such as Benedict Cumberbatch, George Clooney, Katie Hopkins and Charlotte Church have been condemned in a new article by a former special adviser to the Conservative Home Secretary Theresa May.
Cumberbatch, 39, famously used his starring role in ‘Hamlet’ at the Barbican to raise money and awareness of the Syrian refugee crisis earlier this year, at one point proclaiming “f*** the politicians”.

Being over 40 and a female journalist in the city means you don't necessarily get the good projects to work on. Kim Barker is just one of those women and she's in need of a new dose of... something. Her relationship is static and her life hasn't exactly become the success story she hoped it would.
When her news organisation is looking for some new field reporters, Kim decides that it might be the chance she's looking for. Sure, the new job might be based in Kabul, but it's got to be better than what she's got. Arriving in the foreign land, she's sent to 'the fun house', a name given to the building where all the foreign journalists live. Learning how to report from two countries and moving back and forth with armed escorts soon becomes the norm for Kim and she develops a an affection for a country most would be wanting to distance themselves from.
As well as reporting - often menial - stories, Kim quickly becomes absorbed in the local way life as well as finding a few new friends also living in the fun house. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is based on Kim Barker's memoir The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The first 'Sherlock' episode to be set in Victorian London.
By now, fans are used to being drip fed episodes of 'Sherlock' - what more can you expect with two award-winning Hollywood actors in the lead roles? - but ever since Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss revealed the Victorian theme of the next Christmas special, fans have been gasping with thirst.
Now, the official title has been announced! Alongside a launch date (alas, AFTER Christmas). And yet, we're still rather in the dark about what to expect. Here's what we know so far:

A woman is said to have left red ribbons outside the ‘Sherlock’ star’s home.
Benedict Cumberbatch has reportedly called the police over ‘an obsessed fan’ who is said to have made several trips to the ‘Sherlock’ actor’s house, leaving red ribbons outside.
