Filming has begun on the long-awaited fourth season of “Sherlock,” which BBC One promises will contain “laughter, tears, shocks, surprises and extraordinary cases.”
This morning’s announcement was accompanied by a brief video of co-creator Mark Gatiss declaring, “We’re back! The game is on.”
Once again starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, the three-episode season opens with Sherlock Holmes back on British soil and Dr. Watson and his wife Mary preparing for their biggest challenge ever: parenthood.
Cumberbatch said in a statement that he’s “genuinely thrilled to be back filming Sherlock with all the cast and crew. I can’t wait for everyone to see Season 4. But you will have to wait … though not for long … And it will be worth it.”
The debut episode will be directed by Rachel Talalay (“Doctor Who,” “The Flash”).
“Sherlock” Season 4 will air on BBC One in the United Kingdom and PBS in the United States.
