New SHERLOCK Season 3 Trailer Released!

Posted on December 9, 2013 at 10:00 am by Amanda Andonian

It’s less than a month away! Yesterday, the BBC released a new trailer for the upcoming season of Sherlock, giving us more of a glimpse into what we can expect from the latest exploits of everyone’s favorite consulting detective. Check it out below:

Wow, so Sherlock’s been MIA for two years? That’s not going to have any strain whatsoever on his friendship with John! It’s interesting that Sherlock would confide his actual whereabouts to Mycroft, though perhaps he didn’t mean to? After all, his brother is remarkably resourceful. It wouldn’t surprise me, actually, if he’d managed to find out that Sherlock was alive all on his own. Also, how about John’s new mustache? If they don’t make fun of him relentlessly for that bizarre facial hair, I’ll be severely disappointed.

As for the trailer itself, the tone seems a little odd to me. There’s just so much frenetic energy and smash cuts into strange camera angles and abstract shots. Hopefully that’s just the work of an overzealous trailer editor and not an actual indication of the direction the show will take. One of my favorite things about Sherlock is how understated it is, as well as the way in which everything builds up slowly into the final reveal. This is one show that definitely does not need the Hollywood action treatment.

Who else is waiting with bated breath for the new season? Have any theories on how Sherlock pulled off his own death? Leave us your speculation in the comments!
