Sherlock Series to PBS

The Game is on!

The BBC’s smash hit Sherlock will return to American television in May. We here at Mania recognize this as one of the best shows on television. If you haven’t discovered the series yet you have plenty of time to do so. The first series (or season as we yanks call it) is streaming on Netflix. Series 2 will premiere here in the states on PBS Sunday May 6th, 2012.

Plot: The struggle goes on in 21st-century London as the updated team of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson battle the worst that modern criminality has to offer, including a computer-savvy arch-villain who wants to rule the world. Benedict Cumberbatch (War Horse, The Hobbit) returns as the world's foremost consulting detective, with Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, The Office UK) as the stalwart, if edgy, Dr. John Watson, and Andrew Scott (Lennon Naked) as the unassuming mastermind of evil, Jim Moriarty.

Schedule:

MYSTERY! "Sherlock, Series 2: A Scandal in Belgravia" Airdate: 5/6/2012
Episode: Sherlock and Watson are plunged into a case of blackmail involving crafty dominatrix Irene Adler, whose motto is "know when you are beaten." It seems she has incriminating photos of a session with a British royal. Can she outsmart Sherlock at his own game? And at a battle he is ill prepared to wage — love?

MYSTERY! "Sherlock, Series 2: The Hounds of Baskerville" Airdate: 5/13/2012
Episode: Sherlock and Watson pursue the trail of the Baskerville experiments — top-secret government research on genetically engineered gigantic animals for military use. Or so it is rumored. Whatever the truth, something big is up on the moors.

MYSTERY! "Sherlock, Series 2: The Reichenbach Fall" Airdate: 5/20/2012
Episode: In what may be the climatic case of his career, Sherlock faces Moriarty’s diabolical plot to “get Sherlock,” which begins innocently enough when the criminal mastermind breaks into the Crown Jewels. As the scheme unfolds, Moriarty poses the “final problem,” and a tabloid reporter reveals the “shocking truth” about the great detective.

Watch Sherlock Season 2: A Scene from Ep. 1 on PBS. See more from Masterpiece.

 Loved the first series and have been waiting for the second.  I was tempted to download them, but it turns out I was too lazy to do it.  Now I don't have to.  Really looking forward to it.

Sweet!  On PBS? That was unexpected.

@Phantom - They probalby will after a bit. From what I've noticed they come here after the BBC is done with them. Though it's funny that PBS will get them before.

True about BBC America re-airing these. PBS loves their british shows though. (Faulty Towers, Monty Python, Benny Hill, Are You Being Served?) Speaking of awesome foreign shows, I was halfway thru the first season of Lost Girl when a buddy told me he was already watching Season 2 online! I was like, "WTF?" He tells me it's a Canadian show that ScyFy is re-airing.

*facepalm*

How was I supposed to know? ScyFy tells us, "And now 'Lost Girl', a ScyFy original."

Damn corporate America...

 First saw the series on BBC Canada. One of the best written shows on the airwaves today, absolutely fantastic. Jeremy Brett would be proud.

 The most anticipated news for me since Bond would finally make a comeback this year.  The first season is a fave and I've watched it twice.  Ready for season two!
