Following a one-off Christmas episode of SHERLOCK (read our recap) that turned out to connect more to the main arc than fans had been led to believe, filming has begun on season 4 of the BBC series.
The BBC has said that “Series four begins with the nation’s favourite detective, the mercurial Sherlock Holmes, back once more on British soil, as Doctor Watson and his wife, Mary, prepare for their biggest ever challenge – becoming parents for the first time.”
The new season will once again have three episodes. And co-creators, writers and executive producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss say: “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. Ghosts of the past are rising in the lives of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson bringing adventure, romance and terror in their wake. This is the story we’ve been telling from the beginning. A story about to reach its climax…”
There’s no word yet on a premiere date for the new season of SHERLOCK.
