'Sherlock' Creators Already Know What's Coming In Seasons 4 & 5

Sherlock Season 3 may not have actually aired in the US yet, but we're already looking ahead to Seasons 4 and 5, and good news: Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss have Sherlock plotted out through then.

Forget that given the show's current trajectory, Sherlock Seasons 4 & 5 probably won't air until 2016 and never, respectively — it's just somewhat comforting to know that Moffat and Gatiss (the latter known lovingly in the fandom as Godtiss) are still so passionate about Sherlock Holmes that they couldn't wait to plan seasons ahead:

If those aren't excited fanboys I don't know what would be.

Moffat said these things at a recent screening for the Sherlock Season 3 finale, "His Last Vow," which airs this Sunday in the UK and already has us quaking in our boots despite the fact that we haven't even seen it yet.

Regardless of the ways in which that finale could break our hearts (or our Watson, or his Holmes), there seems to be something to look forward to in the years to come.
