“We do have an answer but we’re not telling what it is,” said co-creator Steven Moffat. “Everything’s possibly on the table."
Moffat also noted that producers "haven’t had the conversation” about gearing up a fifth season. He said he is fully focused finishing out his run on Doctor Who.

“I’m assuming at some point we all show up again and do it when our careers have dipped,” he said. “We will re-create our glory days back when everyone loved us."

Both actors are currently swept up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Doctor Strange and Everett K. Ross, respectively, so their production availability is a bit limited over the next few years.
