This article doesn't really give a whole lot of information, so I'm taking it with a grain of salt. But I would like to go on record as saying, I think a fifth season of Sherlock is a horrible idea. Not only are Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch simply too busy to really make a new series work logistically, the end of the fourth season strongly implied an end to the narrative of the show. Trying to take it beyond that ending is ill-advised, in my opinion. I guess we'll see if it ever comes to pass...
