As a fan of the Sherlock Holmes character, I was instantly hooked when a friend turned me on to BBC’s Sherlock. Since then, I’ve been absolutely in love with the series and I’m not sure I can say there’s EVER been a better adaptation. So, imagine my eagerness to have a third season of the hit drama. Now, we seem to be a bit closer as Sherlock is set to begin shooting. Furthermore, we know it won’t be the end, either. So, for all you fellow Sherlock fans, it’s time to get a bit giddy.
Reports have revealed that Season 3 of Sherlock will begin shooting next Monday, after having their first read-through a couple of days ago. The new season was supposed to begin filming in January, but unfortunately was put on delay due to scheduling conflicts. But, thankfully we now have the ball starting to roll on this one.
The bad news: Director Paul McGuigan will not be returning for Season 3. However, it has been confirmed that both Jeremy Lovering and Colm McCarthy will each direct at least one episode of the new season. No word, yet, on a third director to round out the trilogy.
PBS is stating that we’ll get to see Sherlock Season 3 late 2013 or early 2014.
On top of that, there was previously speculation that Season 3 may be the last for Sherlock. But, thankfully, Benedict Cumberbatch has confirmed that there will be a fourth season. In a recent interview with Radio Times, Sherlock himself said that both he and Martin Freeman have already signed on for a fourth season. Furthermore, Cumberbatch goes on to express his desire to keep Sherlock going beyond the fourth season, as well. We can hope so!
