One of the biggest winners of last night’s Emmy awards was the BBC’s “Sherlock” which took home numerous honors including a writing award for writer/executive producer Steven Moffat.
Talking with the press backstage, he spoke about the upcoming fourth season of the series which will begin filming in January. Moffat claims the new season will be even more surprising than previous years:
“We have a plan to top it and actually I do think our plan is devastating. We practically reduced our cast to tears by telling them the plan. Honestly, Mark [Gatiss, producer] 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 it].”
Moffat also discussed the Emmy recognition the show received this year:
“We’ve won outside of America, which is a place. We were just starting to think that that phase of our lives was dying down because as shows get older they don’t win as often – just like people. We’re delighted that we’ve made it here and hopefully this gets more people watching. That’d be great.”
Moffat wouldn’t budge though on when the new episodes would premiere, though best guesses so far have been sometime next Fall:
“When they go out is up to the BBC. And I am their loyal servant. I simply do what they ask me. What’s happening with Sherlock is unusual. We will keep coming back it.”
