Sherlock is one of the most beloved and successful adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels, but we haven’t seen new episodes since 2017. Series creator Steven Moffat, however, is willing to do more.
Reiterating earlier sentiments about a new season of Sherlock, Moffat said (via Deadline) who would “start writing tomorrow” if stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman returned.
Sherlock last aired five years ago, a fourth season that ended with Holmes confronting his evil sister in an epic episode titled The Final Problem.
“They want bigger and better things, but Martin and Benedict, ‘Please come back?’” joked Moffat.

More about Sherlock
Sherlock was created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, adapting the Sherlock Holmes stories for the present day.
Each episode, which usually lasts around 90 minutes, adapts a specific story or novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, with a beginning, middle and end. That way, the viewer can watch the chapters in isolation.
In the lead role, we have Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), as Sherlock Holmes, an unfriendly and genius detective, who doesn’t like to socialize and not only thinks he’s smarter than everyone around him.
On your side, we have Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson, the detective’s eternal companion, who keeps Sherlock down to earth and helps him in all cases.
Sherlock has four seasons in total.
