The BBC has confirmed that we will be getting new Sherlock episodes! Sherlock will return with three new episode in 2015. We also will be getting a standalone special to air around Christmas 2015!
Steven Moffat released the following statement:
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…” It’s always the last thing we expect, isn’t it?
Fellow Sherlock co-creator, co-writer, and executive producer Mark Gatiss also had ths to say :
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!
