EDITED: Benedict Cumberbatch confirms Sherlock series 4


Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he and co-star Martin Freeman have signed up for a fourth series of the BBC1 detective drama.

"We’ve agreed to two more series but I’m probably going to get into trouble for saying that," said Cumberbatch at the South Bank Show Awards this afternoon.

"All I know at the moment is I’m doing these three and another three."

The star added that he would like the show to continue beyond a fourth series but admitted it would depend on whether he, Freeman and co-creator Steven Moffat, who is also showrunner on Doctor Who, could find the time to do it.

"It just depends on Martin and I’s availability, how long we can keep it going. It depends on Steven’s ability. I’d love to keep it going."

EDIT: Benedict has now clarified his earlier comments on camera. You can see that here.
