While speaking to the Telegraph, Freeman revealed that filming is scheduled to start early 2015 for a Christmas special that will obviously air around Christmas time that same year. That special will be followed by three new episodes! The reason we have to wait so long for these shows to get made is because the two main actors are in high demand, and they’ve been very busy. This is what Freeman had to say:

“It looks pretty likely. I’m speaking off-message here – if this was New Labour I’d get fired – [but] a Christmas special is what I understand.”

He goes on to reveal that his wife, Amanda Abbington, who joined the last series as Watson’s on-screen wife, would be back. Spoiler Alert ahead for those who haven’t read any of the Sherlock Holmes books. When speaking about his wife’s character he says:

“Certainly, yes, for the foreseeable future. While we play fast and loose with the original stories, we generally follow the trajectory of what Conan Doyle did. So he [Watson] gets married, and then Mary dies – so at some point presumably she’ll die.”
