The "Sherlock" Season 3 mini-episode, "Many Happy Returns," has been posted online early by the good people at the BBC. Now you can watch Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in the short video -- the story introduces everything you need for the upcoming season.

While the exact timing of the story is not mentioned, some time has obviously passed since Sherlock Holmes' "death" at the end of Season 2. A shaggy, obviously desperate man (probably a disgraced police detective) has compiled evidence that indicates the continued survival of Sherlock. That evidence spans the world, from Buddhist temples to European court cases.

But Detective Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) isn't buying it. He knows Sherlock is dead.

It seems that Dr. John Watson (Freeman) sadly shares that view, even if he really, really doesn't want to. When Lestrade shows up with an extended version of Sherlock's birthday greeting to Watson, that becomes very, very clear. The filmed version of the detective mixes in his trademark insulting observation with some actual emotion. And of course there must be a little bit of foreshadowing too:

"I can tell you what you could do. You could stop being dead." -- Watson
"OK." -- Sherlock

"Sherlock" Season 3 will premiere on Jan. 1 in the U.K. and on Jan. 19 in the U.S.

 

Can't wait for it to come back.

I don't know how many watch Elementary...I like it too...even though it's a little too "American", I think it's one of the better shows on network tv right now. But Sherlock is way superior to it and the RDJ crap fest.

I have seen the first 3 shows of the new season. A little slow and dealing with Sherlock's "death" Just now moving on for the forth episode... still a good show though.

I know..3 fricken episodes....wtf?

 

"Sherlock" fans may not have a long wait before the return of Season 4 -- reports indicate that the series could return to the BBC by Christmas 2014.

According to a report in The Sun, the BBC is hoping to fast-track a "Sherlock" return. "The BBC is desperate for a 'Sherlock' Christmas Day special this year. It wants its biggest guns ready," says a source quoted by the publication. 

These rumors should, however, be taken with a grain of salt. Not only is this a single report from a single publication (with an anonymous source), but any Season 4 production will need to work around the busy movie schedules of stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

Still, "Sherlock" creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have stated publicly that they have storylines worked out for both Season 4 and a possible Season 5 of the popular series. And a single-year wait would be much better than the almost two years between Seasons 2 and 3 of "Sherlock."
