'Sherlock' season 4 set for 2015-16

By Elizabeth Sudlow,

Grab a hold of your laptop because coming 2015-16, fans will be returning to 221 Baker Street as season 4 is officially a go for Sherlock.

Variety reports that filming for the fourth season will begin in January of 2015 with a twist, as there will be a Christmas special in addition to the three-episode season. The show will probably premiere in early 2016 but no dates have been confirmed as of late.

The stars of the show, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, are currently attached to different work with Freeman working on The Hobbit trilogy and Cumberbatch being linked to six different projects, notes Entertainment Weekly.

Steven Moffat, co-creator, writer and executive producer, is up for the challenge as he wrote, “A special, plus a new series of three episodes — it’s a record-breaking run! Of course, it’s far too early to say what’s coming, but we’re reasonably confident that the very next thing to happen to Sherlock and John is the very last thing you’d expect…”

The series is inspired by the works of Arthur Conan Doyle and will premiere on BBC in the UK and PBS in the US sometime in the upcoming year.
