New episodes of Sherlock probably won’t hit the air, at least in America, until 2016. If we’re lucky, maybe late 2015, but nothing is set in stone. Well, that’s not entirely true. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who’ll both be seen in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will soon shoot a special episode of the show that will air during 2015.
We don’t know exactly what will happen in the episode as the finale of the third season offered quite the cliffhanger, but we have the first image that hints at the story. Maybe this episode won’t actually be in sequential order with the rest of the show. Check out the Sherlock special image and see for yourself. Read More »

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 »
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 »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The BBC and PBS Masterpiece series Sherlock was the highlight of a panel at Comic Con today, with producers Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat, and Sue Vertue in attendance. Not in the house were the show’s stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, because they are occupied with finishing up The Hobbit and filming the third season of Sherlock. But the two actors were showcased in a video introduction to the panel — greeted with Twilight panel-worthy screams from the audience — in which Cumberbatch “explained” just how Sherlock made it out of the end of season two.
The panel that followed was light on news but very entertaining, as Matiss, Moffat, and Vertue evaded questions and offered up a few observations about making the show, all the way through the nearly-complete third season. You can watch the actors’ video intro below, after which we’ll run down a few panel highlights. Needless to say there are some mild spoilers for the end of the second season below, and anyone who wants to go into the thitd season cold should watch the video below, but skip the panel recap.

Yesterday the news came out that the third season of BBC’s Sherlock is about to go into production, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprising their lead roles as modern day versions of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.
There was some question as to whether the third season might be the show’s last. Scheduling the long shoot is difficult, as each of the three episodes per season is basically structured like a mini-movie, and Cumberbatch and Freeman are increasingly busy with movie careers.
But now Cumberbatch has confirmed that a fourth season is planned. Read More »

The second season of the BBC incarnation of Sherlock Holmes, simply titled Sherlock, premiered not long ago and has already finished its run. Seasons of the show are only three episodes each, though each 90-minute episode is essentially as good as a standalone Sherlock Holmes film, and the series as a whole is infinitely superior to the Warner Bros. films starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law. (Though, to be fair, the aims of the two approaches are quite different.)
If you’re bummed that season two is already done, take heart: after the finale, show creator Steven Moffat said via Twitter, “Yes of course there’s going to be a third series — it was commissioned at the same time as the second. Gotcha!” Read More »
