Rejoice you Sherlock lovers for Season 4 premiers soon!
Yes! It’s finally happening! Our most loved highly functioning sociopath is soon to be back with more mysteries and twists! Sherlock will return on January 1, 2017 – almost a year after the Sherlock special The Abominable Bride and nearly three years since season 3.
The date of release comes as no surprise considering the prior seasons have debuted on New Year’s Day. After what seems like an eternity we will be Sherlock-less no more!
“Sherlock series four—here we go again! Whatever else we do, wherever we all go, all roads lead back to Baker Street, and it always feels like coming home,” says showrunner Steven Moffat.
“Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson and terror and tragedy are looming. This is the story we’ve been telling from the beginning and it’s about to reach its climax.”
He adds “It’s unlikely that we’ve completely finished it. There would be nothing strange in stopping for a while,” he said. “It could go on forever, coming back now and again.”
Are you worried that the growing fame Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman might mean that this could be the last season of the show, nothing is set in stone. Click here for more Sherlock scoop
