Sherlock fans such as myself have been eagerly awaiting the next season of Sherlock with patient and rabid anticipation. We were sated in between seasons earlier this year with the Sherlock: The Abominable Bride special, but still we need to know, when do we get our next three episodes?
Of course, we’d figured it’d be longer, what with Benedict Cumberbatch now taking on a large role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Doctor Strange, in a movie that hits US theaters next Friday, and I believe is already out in the UK(?) But with a new teaser trailer just dropping along with a release date that is much closer than we’d ever figured. 1/1/17
That’s right, January 1st, or 1st January, however which way you say it where you’re from, it’s happening, and it’s written the same way either way numerically, and I could not be happier for this news. We’ve waited two years for this, as is the customary wait time for Sherlock fans, and from this trailer, it looks like it will be fantastic.
The first episode will be called “The Six Thatchers” and this will kick off 2017 with a nice kickstart of geeky awesomeness. So, we have Doctor Strange November, Rogue One December, and Sherlock in January. Talk about a happy and geeky holiday season.
