Martin Freeman on ‘Sherlock’ future: ‘It’s very hard to get together’

Freeman currently stars in TV adaptation of 'Fargo'

Martin Freeman has said the cast and crew of Sherlock are finding it difficult to find a time to shoot series 4.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Freeman admitted that he finds it’s becoming increasingly more problematic to get everyone involved with the making of the hit BBC One programme to record another series.

“It’s very hard to get together,” he said. “But it’s one of those things where you have to at some point just go, ‘We’re going to do it now’ – otherwise we could be having this conversation in three years.”

He added: “There comes a point where you’ve got to piss or get off the pot.”

The first series of Sherlock aired in summer 2010, with a second run following in early 2012. Since then, the show’s stars have become increasingly in demand. Freeman stars as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, while Benedict Cumberbatch has roles in several high-profile films, including Star Trek Into Darkness.

Martin Freeman can currently be seen in the TV adaptation of Fargo.
