Sherlock Season 4 News


By: Haylee Fisher (@haylee_fisher)

Do you want the good news or the bad news, Sherlock fans?

Bad news – the wait for season four is even longer than expected.

But the good news is that season four has been confirmed for its usual three episodes. And a one-off Christmas special will air in 2015!

According to Entertainment Weekly, actor and show co-writer Mark Gatiss (Mycroft Holmes) said in a statement announcing the show’s return, “Series Four! At last! It’s always special to return to Sherlock but this time it’s even more special as we’re doing…a Special! Not only THAT, we’ll then be shooting three more episodes which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before…The whole ‘Sherlock’ team are terrifically excited to return for four new adventures. The Game is on — again!”

Because stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are off becoming big movie stars in big movie franchises, the toughest part of filming continues to be their availability. (Cumberbatch alone is attached to six upcoming movies that are in various stages of production.) The Christmas special will shoot in January 2015 with the rest of the season shooting later in the year. Because of that, the back-to-back three episodes may not air until 2016.

No matter when it graces our screens, it’s guaranteed fans will be anxious to see what’s next for John and Sherlock, and especially why Moriarty’s face is on every TV in England.

What are you most looking forward to when Sherlock returns?

    This is one of the best SH franchises I seen. I thought the Jeremy Brett couldn’t be beat but your damn close if not superseded that SH franchises. I never thought no one could surpass J. Bretts way of turning his head in that Sherlock style or yelling at Watson. Those were great Television I have the DVD’s I still watch them all the time. Please continue to produce this Sherlock franchise you’ve done very well and the actors you’ve chosen are really great together WOW well done.
