Sherlock filming"Sherlock" Season 4 has come and gone all too quickly.

The fourth season concluded Sunday with an adrenaline-spiking finale, only to again raise the question of whether or not we'll get more of the crime drama series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in the future. The fact that the finale tied off its loose ends worried many fans, especially after earlier hints that Season 4 could be the show's last.

Unfortunately, we still don't have a definitive answer. Showrunner Steven Moffat recently chatted with Entertainment Weekly about the intense season finale and the fate of the series, and he avoided giving a yes or a no on more "Sherlock." Instead, he discussed the lack of cliffhangers while still leaving the door open for additional episodes.

"There isn't something we have to come back to address," he told the publication. "Which is quite good for us. Because if we do come back, we can just start with a knock on the door and a new client, and they can go and investigate."

Reassuring as that sounds, he conceded the possibility of Season 4 bringing the end.

"It's certainly the first time we've ever ended a season thinking, 'If we never come back, this is fine," he said. "If we want to come back and solve more crimes we can do it, that's no problem."

Apparently, finding out whether we'll ever get "Sherlock" Season 5 will continue to be as suspenseful and mysterious as the show itself. How fitting -- and frustrating.
