UPDATE: Martin Freeman was right. Deadline is reporting Sherlock will be back in 2015, starting with a special that’ll film early in January. Later, they’ll get to work on season four for a probable 2016 premiere. Head there for more details. Original article follows.
Sherlock season three came and went all too fast. Each of the show’s tightly-scripted seasons is so easy to devour in a day or two. The 90-minute episodes merit multiple views, but the four and a half hours of story we saw in January of this year only made us want a fourth season even more.
Trouble is, scheduling a new season is difficult. It is essentially like shooting three films, and stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are wildly busy. (Due in no small part to the popularity of this very show.) So while a fourth season could happen, we don’t know when cameras could roll.
We’ve heard, however, that a one-off special was possible, to bridge the gap between seasons. Now Martin Freeman says a Sherlock Christmas special is looking likely… but not until 2015. Read More »

Sherlock season three, comprised of only three episodes as is the series’ pattern, came and went all too quickly earlier this year. We know that creators Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss want to do a fourth season, and that stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are game for it. But there’s always a problem: getting everyone together. As both actors become bigger movie stars, they have less time for projects such as Sherlock, which is like shooting three movies in a row. But what about the idea of a Sherlock one-off episode to bridge seasons three and four? Freeman says the idea has come up, and he loves the notion. Read More »
You probably already know the good news: we’re getting a fourth season of Sherlock. And if you’ve finished the third season, that was all but settled in the final moments. The bad news, however, is the wait. Series co-creator Steven Moffat splits his time between Sherlock and another little show people might have heard of, Doctor Who. He has a lot of his plate. In a recent interview he said he won’t sacrifice any quality and that means we probably won’t see Sherlock return for a few years. Read More »
The highly-anticipated third season of Sherlock is about to end in the U.K, and U.S. audiences will get our run of the short season on January 19, but series creator Steven Moffat is already looking ahead. He revealed a fourth season of the hit show, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, is in the works. Read More »
After waiting almost two years for the third season of Sherlock, its January 19th premiere is so close, you can almost touch it. But if it seems excruciating to wait those few more weeks, the BBC has released a 7-minute prequel episode that shows Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) following up on rumored sightings of the thought-to-be deceased mastermind Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch). Watson (Martin Freeman) is in there too, watching and thinking about his partner. The show comes back on PBS in the United States on January 19, but watch the prequel mini-episode now.

That headstone is a lie, as we all know, but the opening episode of Sherlock, which kicks off the show’s third season, is all about catching the rest of the world up to the fact that Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) did not die at the end of the second season. A new teaser for the season opener kicks off with a shot of that headstone, then gives us a bit of mopey Watson (Martin Freeman) before starting to get the word out that this new season won’t be centered around a ghost.

We’ve known that the first episode of the third season of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, would deal with the fact that no one around Sherlock yet knows that he survived the end of season two. That’s enough to give us a general idea of what’s in store from at least some of the premiere when it airs on Sunday, January 19th on PBS, and a first teaser trailer has given us a good peek, too.
Now BBCOne has released a new image that has a bit of Edward Hopper’s ‘Nighthawks’ in it. Check out that pic below. Read More »
