The BBC announced earlier this year that "Sherlock" will be returning. The network released a tentative air year (not to be confused with an official air date) for the season 4 of "Sherlock." According to the BBC, the show will have a 2016 air date, keeping to the pattern of releasing a season every two years. In addition to a tentative 2016 release date, the BBC revealed that there will be a one episode special prior to the fourth season.
Release date aside, there may be some sadness in the episodes to come. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, producer Steve Moffat was if the new season can top season 3 and his reply was exciting and ominous: “We have a plan to top it. And I do think our plan is devastating. We’ve practically reduced our cast to tears telling them the plan … we’re probably more excited that we’ve ever been about Sherlock.”
Now, we know "devastating" is a subjective word and the verbiage is open to interpretation, but one has to wonder if Moffat is hinting at a death. A death of a major character will surely shake things up but the following question is which character will and can die? Through the process of elimination, we're inclined to believe it will be Sherlock's family member or Mrs. Hudson. The latter's death will certainly affect Sherlock more, and in turn, pull at the heartstrings of the viewers.
Here are 20 spoilers for season 4 of "Sherlock":
1. It will be unexpected. "Of course, it's far too early to say what's coming, but we're reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you'd expect ... " teases Moffat to the BBC.
2. The show will be darker. "We’re going to try to take it somewhere we’ve never been before — and I don’t mean outer space," said Moffat to Entertainment Weekly." It will be challenging place to go. We always start with a re-introduction that builds toward a darker climax — we might just be going darker [from the outset]. We got a very, very good set of ideas."
3. The plans for season 3 are top secret. Moffat told Entertainment Weekly that season 4 will be even better than season 3. "We have a plan to top [Season 3]," said Moffat. "And I do think our plan is devastating. We’ve practically reduced our cast to tears telling them the plan … we’re probably more excited that we’ve ever been about Sherlock."
