Sherlock Season 5 is something fans of the detective thriller series have been waiting for the last few years. However, there are no solid updates on the development of the fifth season of the Sherlock series as everyone included is super busy in other projects.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are starring in so many movies and TV series that is hard for both of them to get time to shoot for Sherlock Season 5 as it the filming takes a long time.

Even the show creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are handling the new Dracula show for BBC these days and even they are not free. However, that doesn’t mean Sherlock Season 5 won’t see the light of the day as everyone is still on board once the dates can be managed.
Sherlock Season 5 Updates by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in a recent interview hinted that Sherlock Season 5 is in the early development stage. The only problem is that both Sherlock and Dr. Holmes actors have signed up for multiple projects and they will have to get mutually free in case they want to start filming for the fifth season.
Apart from the scheduling issue, Sherlock Season 5 script is not even ready and the creators have to finalize things before they can start actual production. Benedict and Martin will take out some time between other movies and complete shooting for Sherlock Season 5 once the script and storyline is ready.
Sherlock Season 5 Release Date and Story Adaptation
Sherlock Season 5 release date is expected to set around 2022 or 2023 as per some reports. However, nothing is fixed regarding the show as there can’t be a premiere date unless the show actually starts filming.
Sherlock Season 5 could adapt “The Red-Headed League” storyline for one of the episodes as it could be easily changed to a modern-day heist storyline. Sherlock Season 5 details will be updated once there are any official updates from the cast or the creators.
