Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will play another.
BBC One’s Twitter account has made flesh the dreams of Tumblr’s collective hivemind: more episodes of Sherlock.
Creator Steven Moffat added in an official statement that Sherlock and Watson would first return with a Christmas special in December of 2015, to be followed by a fourth season, once again comprised of three episodes, in 2016.
Each season of Sherlock goes by criminally fast, so getting one extra movie-length mystery is a true bonus.
But with Cumberbatch and Freeman becoming increasingly busy – thanks, ironically, to the success of Sherlock – might this be their final go round?
At least we don’t have to confront that prospect for another year.
