Sounds like executive producer Steven Moffat has some dastardly plans in store for the next series of ‘Sherlock’. Moffat revealed he has something “devastating” up his sleeve for when the show returns.
He added: “We practically reduced our cast to tears by telling them the plan.
“Mark [Gatiss] and myself are so excited with what we’ve got coming up, probably more excited than we’ve ever been about ‘Sherlock’… Honestly, I think we can [top the last season].”
He also teased a new location for the show, but wouldn’t be drawn on specifics. “We’re going to try and take it somewhere we’ve never been before – and I don’t mean outer space.
“It will be a challenging place to go. We always start with a re-introduction that builds towards a darker climax – we might just be going darker [from the outset]. We got a very, very good set of ideas.”
Moffat was speaking at the Emmys, where ‘Sherlock’ picked up three awards. Benedict Cumberbatch won Lead Actor, Martin Freeman was Best Supporting Actor, while the series three finale ‘His Last Vow’ won the Writing For a Miniseries, Movie or A Dramatic Special.
Slightly embarrassingly, neither Cumberbatch nor Freeman were at the ceremony.
Moffat and Gatiss also work together on ‘Doctor Who’.
‘Sherlock’ will return for a one-off special followed by a three-part run.
