Sherlock fans have been eagerly awaiting season four since the New Years special in January.
And it looks like we won't have to wait much longer for Benedict Cumberbatch to hit our TV screens again.
It has been announced that season four will air on January 1 2017 on BBC1. Yaaaas!
The official Twitter page for Sherlock announced the news last night which then sent fans into an absolute frenzie.
Check out the trailer – it looks SO good.
We have to admit, we panicked a little bit when Sherlock was left in the loop. Will Benedict Cumberbatch grace our screens again as the beloved detective? We just didn't know.
But, now Masterpiece and PBS have announced that season four is in production. Hurrah!
"Sherlock series four—here we go again! Whatever else we do, wherever we all go, all roads lead back to Baker Street, and it always feels like coming home," said co-creator and writer Steven Moffat.
"Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson and terror and tragedy are looming. This is the story we've been telling from the beginning and it's about to reach its climax."
Masterpiece also promised that there will be a few surprises, such as John and Mary starting a family.
"This is the kind of news that has our audience cheering.
"Along with our millions of fans, I can't wait to see what the boys will do next."
Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has been confirmed as the first big name for an exciting new project.
The actor will be voicing the evil tiger Shere Khan in Warner Bros.’ adaptation of The Jungle Book. Playing a man-eating tiger will be an easy task for Benedict – he’s faced worse human villains on Sherlock!
This will be Benedict’s second time working with director Andy Serkis. The pair also worked together on The Hobbit films, in which Benedict voiced the dastardly dragon Smaug. We do agree that he has the perfect voice for a bad-ass dragon or tiger!
The Warner Bros. version of The Jungle Book is not to be confused with the new Disney adaptation, which stars Idris Elba as Shere Khan.
Two Jungle Book films at once… confusing, much?! Our favourite still has to be the original Disney version. All together now, “When you pick a pawpaw, or a prickly pear…”
The star of Sherlock and The Hobbit, Martin Freeman has apparently been banned from Twitter – by his wife.
Martin's wife, actress Amanda Abbington who also plays his wife Mary on the series, says that he would share too many unpopular opinions on the social media site.
“He will never tweet,’ says Amanda. “He would destroy his reputation.”
“He’d say something he regrets. He says things he regrets every day at home and I say, “That, right there, is why you can’t do Twitter!”
“He is very vocal about stuff so we have to be careful.”
BBC One have today confirmed that everyone’s favourite TV show, Sherlock, is indeed returning to our screens!
All day long, the broadcaster has been dropping hints and teasing us mercilessly with Sherlock news, which was due to come out at 2.21pm today. And now it’s here!
The news? Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will reprise their epic roles for one special episode on top of a series that will comprise of three episodes.
Now is this not the best news you’ve heard all day?
Hilarious spoof by RTE’s Republic of Telly on the greatest detective of all time.
Everybody’s favourite detective show, Sherlock, might have had a different leading man.
During a new event hosted by BAFTA, which allows actors to speak at length about their careers, Benedict Cumberbatch opened up about his role as Sherlock Holmes.
Speaking about his thoughts before reading the script, the actor said: “I heard about it and thought that sounds like an idea to reinfranchise something to make money. It could be a bit cheap and cheesy.”
However, upon reading the script and hearing who was involved, he swiftly changed his mind: “Then I found out who was involved and I realised it wouldn’t be cheap and cheesy … I thought I would read it and then I fell in love with it.”
We are so, so glad you didn’t pass up the opportunity, Benedict; can you imagine anyone else as Sherlock? We can’t!
Starring the lovely Amy Huberman, Sherlock‘s Andrew Scott (that’s right, Moriarty!) and Brian Gleeson, this movie is set for release in March and has the potential to be the Irish film of the year.
