First we had a brief comment from Martin Freeman on when Sherlock would return (seen here). Now we have an official confirmation. That’s right Maniacs, Sherlock will return and the wait is as long as we thought it would be, 2015.
The series will return to BBC One and PBS Masterpiece with both a special episode and three new episodes for Season/ Series 4.
From the Hollywood Reporter: "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," co-creator, writer and executive producer Steven Moffat said in a statement.
All this was announced via Twitter. Here are the posts in reverse!
