OK, we agree, this back and forth “will it” or “won’t it” can be a bit dizzying.

But, Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat‘s latest update on the status of the fan favorite series will tide us, and fans worldwide, over for a little bit.

Moffat, who is also currently the showrunner for Doctor Who, talked to BBC 2 Radio’s Chris Evans on his Breakfast Show just yesterday (June 29), saying, “We did [the last series] a year ago, just about, and I’ve been flat-out on Doctor Who ever since. So,I haven’t really thought about it.”

We get it. All his focus is on one show at a time. Speaking of which…

Here’s a preview of what Moffat has been so busy working on, with the season 10 finale happening this Saturday, July 1 at 8:30/7:30c on BBC AMERICA:

… Back to Sherlock. But, sitting with Evans at BBC 2, and asked about it, he did have a chance to give it a think. And, whhhhut was his response?

“I sort of assume we will. I sort of assume we’ll come back,” said Moffat.

And, we’ll take it. “Sort of” is better than a flat out “nope.”

To be honest, prior to even these words coming straight from the source, we sort of assumed Sherlock would return, no matter what.

Like, what if it didn’t… no, no, we don’t even want that thought in our “mind palace.”

Andrew Scott, who plays the delightfully devious Professor James Moriarty, recently predicted it would be two or so years until we see another Sherlock.

That’s totally fine with us. We’re patient. And, that’s consistent with the series rollout to date.

No biggie.

Staying optimistic, the forthcoming season, while possibly years away, gives us something to look forward to; not that we’re scheduling our calendar around Sherlock (but, possibly, sort of, are).

You can listen to the interview itself over at BBC 2, which also includes Moffat talking about his departure from Doctor Who. He will be handing over DW to Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall.

So, the Sherlock update is… a big fat “maybe baby.” Are you cool with that??
