Sherlock returns with a special and three episodes


Sherlock will return with a special episode, and then it will be followed by its normal three episodes for season four. No word on what the special will revolve around, but if the way season three ended, it should be an interesting special.

Steven Moffat (co-creator, writer, executive producer) had this to say about the upcoming season:

A special, plus a new series of three episodes — it’s a record-breaking run! Of course, it’s far too early to say what’s coming, but we’re reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John, is the very last thing you’d expect…

Mark Gatiss (co-creator, writer, executive producer) added this:

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 wholeSherlock team are terrifically excited to return for four new adventures. The Game is on — again!

Shooting for the Sherlock Special will start on January 2015. The series will shoot later that year. So given that timeline I would say that the special should be released late 2015, then the series should come out early 2016.

Are you excited to hear the news?
