Release Date of Sherlock Season 5

Why is There no Release Date for Sherlock Season 5 yet?
In 2017 the creator of the show Mark Gatiss said that season 5 could possibly take more than 2-3 years, and later in 2021, Benedict Cumberbatch said he was up for a fifth season, but he, Freeman, and other actors who play key roles in the series have pretty busy schedules.
So, that could be one of the reasons for the postponement of the series; another one is that almost all the best Sherlock cases were used up in previous seasons; indeed, there are some cases that can be used, but all the classic ones are used. So, these can be some of the reasons why season 5 is taking so many years.
