‘Sherlock’ surprised many earlier this week by picking up three Emmy’s during Monday nights awards ceremony.
While speaking at the awards series producer Steven Moffat promise fans that the new series will be devastating when compared to the rather tame series 3.
He went on to say: “We practically reduced our cast to tears by telling them the plan.
“Mark [Gatiss] 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 the last season].”
Sherlock won three Emmy Awards at Monday night’s ceremony (August 25).
Benedict Cumberbatch won his first Emmy for his role on the show as Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. Martin Freeman also won the Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie award.
Series three finale ‘His Last Vow’ triumphed in the Writing For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Dramatic Special category.
Speaking about the awards, Moffat said: “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.”
