and might be popping up in big Hollywood blockbusters, but that hasn't stopped them returning to their more humble commitments.
In a recent interview with the Radio Times, Cumberbatch has revealed that Sherlock, the show which arguably threw both stars into the big time, is not going to end any time soon. He explained:
We've agreed to two more series but I could get into trouble for saying that. All I know at the moment is I'm doing these three [episodes for Series 3] and another three [episodes for Series 4].
So basically, you've got at least two more seasons of Sherlock coming your way, but maybe there's room for even more? Well, Cumberbatch hinted they could even go beyond a fourth season, although it would all depend on his, Freeman's and creator Steven Moffat's schedules. Despite this, he ultimately concluded that he'd "love to keep it going."
Personally, I'm not too optimistic that we'll see much beyond the fourth season. With Cumberbatch about to appear in Star Trek Into Darkness, and Martin Freeman making a name for himself as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit trilogy, their future schedules are likely to get increasingly tight.
Would you rather they stuck to delivering even more Sherlock? Let me know below.
