Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has hinted that popular series Sherlock might end after season four. The 40-year-old star, known for playing private detective Sherlock Holmes, said the upcoming season might be the end of an era, reported Variety.

More from the world of Entertainment:

“It might be the end of an era. It goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately. We never say never on the show. I’d love to revisit it, I’d love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that, but in the immediate future we all have things that we want to crack on with and we’ve made something very complete as it is, so I think we’ll just wait and see,” he said.

Cumberbatch revealed that the idea of never playing the character again would be galling.

Meanwhile, Cumberbitches – as his female fans call themselves – eagerly awaiting the Sherlock actor in his next avatar as Doctor Strange, as well as the final season (*get the tissues out) of the popular detective TV series. But while they wait with bated breath, it seems the actor figured he’d give his fans something else to talk about, and no one’s really complaining.

On September 28, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour was performing at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and much to fans’ delight, he had Cumberbatch join him on stage to sing a couple of lines from ‘Comfortably Numb’, and boy was he good! Sure, there is no comparing the singing to the original by Roger Waters, Cumberbatch definitely did a splendid job.
