BBC has officially released the first photo from the upcoming “Sherlock” special which can’t get here fast enough. The special is meant to tide us over between the third and fourth season. You can see the photo above.
The photo was released via the BBC One Twitter account. The features Sherlock and Watson portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, respectively. Despite the show being set in modern-day, the photo shows our main character in period attire and Watson still sporting the annoying mustache.
Unfortunately the Christmas Special won’t air until next year and Season 4 won’t grace us until 2016. Our lives are so hard.
Unfortunately BBC is not breaking tradition with the next season “Sherlock.” The series has notoriously taken LONG breaks in-between seasons and the same will happen with season 4. But at least we are getting a fourth season, right?
The BBC officially announced that they will begin filming a Christmas special and season 4 during 2015. This is good news and bad news. It means we will likely get the Christmas special in 2015 but season 4 won’t wire until 2016.
We can blame the long break partly on the popularity of stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Executive producer Sue Vertue pointed out that “It’s taken a little while to get the dates sorted as none of the boys are exactly sitting back twiddling their thumbs but there was unanimous goodwill to make this work, so we’re thrilled that 221b is going to be inhabited again.”
Steven Moffat commented on the events of the season 3 finale and what it means for season 4,
“Of course, it’s far too early to say what’s coming, but we’re reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you’d expect…”
Season 3 is SO so close. To tease fans even more before the premiere, BBC, has released a new 7 minute prequel for the third season of “Sherlock.”
In the prequel, called “Many Happy Returns,” has Sherlock gone for two years. But someone isn’t quite convinced that he’s dead. #SherlockLives.
Series 3 will premiere on BBC One on January 1st with “The Empty Hearse.”
The third season will kick-off in the States on January 19th on PBS. After the New Year’s Day premiere, the second episode will air on Sunday, January 5th, followed by the third and final part on Sunday, January 12th. Those episodes are titled “The Sign of Three” and “His Last Vow.”
You can watch the prequel below:
FINALLY. PBS has officially announced the date that “Sherlock” will be returning to grace our eyeballs. Fans and myself have been anxiously awaiting season 3 of the series that stars Chiseled Cheekbones and Bilbo Baggins, also known as Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, respectively. “Sherlock” will be premiering on Sunday, January 19 at 10 p.m. ET.
It feels like forever since the cliffhanger of season 2 left most of the fandom with gaping mouths. The long gap between season 2 and three was due to the demanding schedules of the show’s lead stars. Cumberbatch was attached to film Star Trek into Darkness while Freeman was working on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. Also causing the delay was co-creator Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who duties as the show’s 50th Anniversary neared.
Season 3. January 19th, 2014. Will be here before you know it, right??
