After much hinting and teasing, the BBC has confirmed that SHERLOCK will be back for a fourth season in 2015!
The new season will begin filming in January and will consist of one special and three regular episodes. There’s no word on the exact airing dates yet, but showrunner Mark Gatiss promises more twists and excitement than ever before:
“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!”
While all of the writers, producers, and actors on the project were unabashedly enthusiastic about SHERLOCK, Season 4 took quite some time to come together thanks to the participants very busy schedules on shows like DOCTOR WHO, GAME OF THRONES, and FARGO.
