Sherlock Season 4 Premiere Date and Plot Spoilers: There's a Third Holmes, Sherrinford Holmes Who'll be Played by Tom Hiddleston?
By Princess Love
Sherlock Season 4 is now closer than ever and it seems like as time passes by some of its theories is becoming more and more real. Before the main topic when it comes to Sherlock is whether Moriarty is still alive, I think Abominable Bride answered that one. Now the hot topic for 'Sherlock Season 4' is whether there's actually a third Holmes.
Here's the latest in Sherlock Season 4 spoilers, news and updates.
Surely there are tons of speculations coming from Sherlock fans for the upcoming Sherlock 4, there's the fact that we saw Moriarty on the TV screen before the ending of Sherlock Season 3, it normal for us to assume that Moriarty came back to life although it is quite confusing since Sherlock saw Moriarty kill himself. Also Steven Moffat (Creator of Sherlock) actually denied this rumor in an interview claiming that Moriarty is certainly dead, however Steven Moffat might just want to surprise us.
Previously Steven Moffat said, "We wouldn't have done the story we're doing, and the way we're doing it, if we didn't have this special. It's not part of the run of three episodes."
We know that this is not the case, the special was connected to Season 4. Additionally, Steven Moffat announced that 'Sherlock Holmes Season 4' will start filming mid-year next year; which makes the release date for 'Sherlock Holmes Season 4', early 2017.
About the Third Holmes
Remember when Mycroft was discussing with some politicians about the punishment to be served for Sherlock back in season 3? And do you remember his line when they doubted that Mycroft might be biased because Sherlock is his brother? Mycroft said,"You know what happened with the other one." Most ignored this line, probably too cryptic, however it simply meant there's another one in the Holmes family, a brother or a sister of Sherlock and Mycroft.
Many are saying that it's probably another employee, but I beg to disagree. Mycroft is smart enough, that he won't compare Sherlock to another employee, after all the question is that Mycroft might be biased because Sherlock is his brother. So we know that Mycroft is comparing Sherlock to someone close to home.
Since this scene was shown during the last episode of season 3, can we expect another Holmes sibling to make an appearance in Sherlock Season 4? Apparently so, some fans are assuming that the other 'brother' (Sherrinford) is going to be played by Tom Hiddleston. Oh. The. Grandeur! Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch in one series, however this is still a rumor and there's no official word on this.
There are also the talks of Mary's death due to childbirth, when it comes this one; the cast seems to be saying different things. Martin Freeman is saying that Mary might actually die this season, but Mark Gatiss is saying that this isn't the case.
Sherlock Season 4 is said to premiere early 2017 on BBC.
