PBS released a teaser for Season 3 of "Sherlock" on Saturday that answers one burning questions about the master detective: Sherlock lives!
The 30-second clip shows Sherlock's grave, flashing to an upset Dr. Watson(Martin Freeman) before going to Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) walking into a restaurant--without actually showing us his face.
"Oh my," one woman in another room says before showing her phone to a friend. Then everyone in the room gets messages that say #SherlockLives, #SherlockHolmesAlive! and #SherlockIsNotDead.
Finally, Sherlock is shown only from the back as he surveys London from a roof top.
The new season will be comprised of three mysteries: "The Empty Hearse," "The Sign of Three" and "His Last Vow." "Sherlock" is written and created by Steven Moffat, who also is in charge of "Doctor Who," which many of you may have just watched as BBC America shows the 50th anniversary special, "The Day of the Doctor."
You excited for the new season of "Sherlock?" Here's what PBS has said:
9 p.m. Sundays, Jan. 19-Feb. 2
Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Fifth Estate," "Star Trek Into Darkness") and Martin Freeman ("The Hobbit," "The Office UK") return as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in three new 90-minute episodes — "The Empty Hearse" (January 19), "The Sign of Three" (January 26) and "His Last Vow" (February 2) — of the contemporary reinvention of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic, written and created by Steven Moffat (Dr. Who) and Mark Gatiss (Game of Thrones). The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated "Sherlock" has been a television sensation since the first season aired in 2010.
