Mark Gattis hints Sherlock might officially be done

In the years since Sherlock began, stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have become bona fide Hollywood stars. It's not that easy to get the duo together these days ... but it might've just gotten so hard that the show is calling it quits.

Co-creator Mark Gattis told The Sun that they made a point to end the most recent season on a note that could serve as a series finale, and that was a very intentional move. He noted it's gotten extremely difficult to work out the schedules, and they even worked it out to try to wrap up the last day of filming with the feel of a series finale on a happy note (even if it didn't exactly go as planned).

Here's an excerpt from his comments:

"I honestly don't know if there will be any more. It's incredibly difficult to get Benedict and Martin's diaries to align. And obviously we left it in a very happy place … if that's the end I'd be very happy where we left it … The last day tends to be an odd day — it's never quite as you imagine it. But we did actually try to contrive it so the very last shot was Benedict and Martin running out of the building. Then we realized that we had to do one last shot the next day of Martin falling over — so that's how it ended. As usual these things end with a whimper."

Fans were mixed in regard to the quality of the last season, and they certainly did wrap it up in a way that brought the entire series full circle. But the show is still a critical darling. So this could be the best thing for those wants to see the series go out on "top."

What do you think? Should this be the end of Sherlock?
