Three years will have passed for Sherlock when Season 4 picks up in January (to say nothing of The Abominable Bride in 2016), and fans have been well-warned that the Benedict Cumberbatch-Martin Freeman series could return intermittently in the years to come. Cumberbatch himself seemed to suggest that Season 4 might be the last for some time, if ever, but creator Steven Moffat isn’t quite so sure.

Sherlock Season 4 is shaping up to be a big one, between a theatrical release and the latest trailer, but will our 2017 premiere dive right into the Moriarty cliffhanger that ended Season 3? Perhaps not, as our full synopsis for “The Six Thatchers” teases an update on a classic tale, along with a deeper exploration of Mary’s past.
Now that the finale of Sherlock Season 4 has turned into a theatrical event, it’s high-time we got some new footage. Thankfully, The BBC obliges with a dark new trailer for Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s return, complete with mysterious declarations of love.
Sherlock likely knows its fourth season premiere will soothe your New Years’ hangover, but will you recover enough by the finale to venture out? Put on a pot of coffee and down some aspirin, as Season 4 finale “The Final Problem” will have a theatrical release for Sherlock and co.
The scope of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock stories often provides fodder for some of the odder sight gags of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s adaptation, and Season 4 may be no different. It seems as if 221b Baker Street has sprung a leak in a cryptic new teaser and poster for the 2017 return.
Sherlock will be back in time for Season 4 to soothe your New Years’ hangover, but just in case of a Thanksgiving hangover, we’ve got new Season 4 photos to tide you over. Meet the littlest Watson (of whom Sherlock is clearly suspicious), as well as Toby Jones’ dastardly dapper foe in the latest look!
We’re getting even more Benedict Cumberbatch than usual this week, between the release of Marvel’s Doctor Strange and the good Doctor’s first SNL hosting, so why not an Honest Trailer to boot? It’s Sherlock’s turn for the elementary roast, and you’ll never not notice Martin Freeman’s adorable running again.
Benedict Cumberbatch is having an even brighter moment in the spotlight with Doctor Strange and an upcoming SNL gig, so what better time to shore up Sherlock’s return? The world’s most handsome detective (sorry, Batman) is officially returning for Season 4 in early 2017, and has the perfect hangover cure.
Sherlock fans have had a long time to prepare for the idea that Benedict Cumberbatch’s ever-expanding career might not leave much space for regular seasons, and the upcoming fourth might mark a major endpoint. Cumberbatch suggest Sherlock Season 4 is “the end of an era,” and “pretty hard to follow on immediately.”
We’re more curious than ever to see how Sherlock Season 4 weaves in and out of the classic detective canon, for which the episode titles usually offer fan sleuths at least some clue. Get your deerstalkers ready, and dive into the first two titles of the new 2017 season!
