Comic-Con 2013: BBC’s ‘Sherlock’ to Make First Appearance, Announces 2014 Premiere

Comic Con 2013 Sherlock Season 3 Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman
BBC

Sherlock‘ fans, the panel is afoot! After a long absence from the air (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are a wee bit busy, after all), the BBC’s beloved ‘Sherlock’ has officially set an American premiere for 2014, but also deduced something better: ‘Sherlock’ will make its first San Diego appearance at Comic-Con 2013!

Entertainment Weekly first confirmed the news, sadly announcing along with it that series stars Cumberbatch and Freeman will most likely not be in attendance. Freeman likely won’t appear for the same reason Peter Jackson skipped out on a ‘Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug’ preview this year, wanting to focus on completing the trilogy.

In any case, the ‘Sherlock’ panel at Comic-Con 203 will feature co-creators, executive producers and writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, along with producer Sue Vertue and a few “surprises” to be had. We very likely expect some kind of trailer or at least a sizzle reel, given the filming already completed, but don’t expect any easy answers as to how Sherlock survived the titular peril of season 2 closer “The Reichenbach Fall.”

EW was also able to confirm that ‘Sherlock’ season 3 will air the US in 2014 on PBS, with the BBC airing all three episodes somewhat earlier. Limey Brits! Meanwhile, the day and venue for ‘Sherlock”s Comic-Con 2013 appearance will be released tomorrow.

Well, what say you? Are you excited to see what ‘Sherlock’ season 3 brings to Comic-Con 2013, even if Sherlock and Watson themselves aren’t in attendance?
