Benedict Cumberbatch hints at 'Sherlock's' end after season 4

Los Angeles, Oct 4:  Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has hinted that popular series "Sherlock" might end after season

The 40-year-old star, known for playing private detective Sherlock Holmes, said the upcoming season might be the end of an era, reported Variety.

"It might be the end of an era. It goes to a place where it will be pretty hard to follow on immediately.

"We never say never on the show. I'd love to revisit it, I'd love to keep revisiting it, I stand by that, but in the immediate future we all have things that we want to crack on with and we've made something very complete as it is, so I think we'll just wait and see," he said.

Cumberbatch revealed that the idea of never playing the character again would be "galling".
