Sherlock Season 4 will be the darkest and possibly the last season of critically acclaimed series. Sherlock Holmes will return to London prematurely from his forced exile and will reunite with Doctor John Watson and Mary. Together they would try to stop Moriarty, who seems to have returned from the dead. The fourth season of Sherlock will be “myopically dark”, according to actor Cumberbatch. “You’re talking about the end of the universe darkness. You can’t see in front of you and would walk into everything dark”
