Sherlock Lives! ‘SHERLOCK’ series 3 photos, teaser and minisode!

As we inch closer to the premiere of SHERLOCK series 3 (January 1 in the U.K. and January 19 in the U.S.), the internet is flooding with information about the updated Holmes series and it”s cast of colorful characters.

Today, BBC One released several new promotional photos of the cast, including some new faces (Mary Morstan, John Watson’s wife). A few of these photos show some very dramatic compositions. Clearly Holmes will have some explaining to do when he makes his triumphant return to 221B Baker Street in “The Empty Hearse, the first episode in this new series.

This past November, BBC also released a new SHERLOCK teaser featuring the hashtag #SHERLOCK LIVES. This teaser seems to be a bit more dramatic than the previous one, intimating that Holmes’ celebrity has grown considerably since the events of “The Reichenbach Fall“.

And finally, the BBC has announced that a prequel minisode titled “Many Happy Returns” which will fill audiences in as to what’s been happening since the detective’s “death” at the end of series 2. The synopsis states: “Sherlock Holmes has been gone for two years. But someone isn’t quite convinced that he’s dead…” There doesn’t seem to be any additional information about the minisode, or who will be in it, but my money is on Mycroft*

This minisode will be available on Christmas day through the BBC’s Red Button service.

Sherlock Season 3 returns on January 1st, 2014. Time to be announced.

*C’mon! He totally knows! He’s a freakin’ spy!
