The fifth season of Sherlock will not be released these years, and fans have been waiting for an explanation for more than three years. The BBC spy drama is based on the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but they are set in the modern times. It is really the best adaptation out there. However, the series has been delayed for some reason, and we want to hear why.
Season 5 of Sherlock is in works – apparently, people heard about it in a café. We do not know how true that statement is, but we finally come with an explanation about the delay.
So why was the fifth season delayed?
The BBC studios are busy with other projects. For example, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are currently working on a new series that is called “Dracula” for the BBC Network. So they have put a pause on Sherlock. Until they are done with their other projects, and they start working on Sherlock again, there is not much that we can do. The cast of the show, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are also busy with other projects – Doctor Strange 2 (Cumberbatch) and Fargo (Freeman). They also need to be free in order to film the next season of Sherlock.
So when is the release date of the fifth season of Sherlock?
Before we start, you need to know that Sherlock has not been canceled. We know there are many rumors out there, but this is not the case. Because of the fact that the cast is busy with other projects, they chose to delay the release date. Sherlock will get an official renewal soon, after both the producers and the actors free their time.
