BBC officially revealing plans for the much-anticipated return of “Sherlock,” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary novels best adaptation yet. Starring legendary Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, Why they are dressed so brilliantly as 1930’s men yet to be known.
“Sherlock” began airing in 2010, establishing a pattern of three 90-minute episodes per series. The most recent episode, “His Last Vow,” concluded series three with a bit of a cliffhanger, teasing the return of Andrew Scott’s Jim Moriarty.
“Sherlock Special,”the upcoming episode is written by series creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat and is rumored to air in late 2015 as a Christmas special. Christmas cannot be more exciting for me.
“Steven and Mark have had a great idea what they can do next,” teased Freeman in conversation with The Mirror earlier this year, “and it is an exciting, mouth watering idea… “
A fourth series is also expected to go into production in 2015 (to then air in 2016). No plans surfaced yet though. They like to tease and keep the tight wraps on everything.
