Great news for Sherlock fans! It’s official that season 4 has been ordered for the popular BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. According to Entertainment Weekly, producers announced Wednesday morning that the series will be back for a special one-off episode followed by a full season 4. Here’s what they had to say,

“Series Four!” wrote co-creator and actor Mark Gatiss. “At last! It’s always special to return to Sherlock but this time it’s even more special as we’re doing…a Special! Not only THAT, we’ll then be shooting three more episodes which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before…The whole ‘Sherlock’ team are terrifically excited to return for four new adventures. The Game is on — again!”

Added co-creator Steven Moffat: “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 ….”

And here’s executive producer Sue Vertue: “It’s taken a little while to get the dates sorted as none of the boys are exactly sitting back twiddling their thumbs but there was unanimous goodwill to make this work so we’re thrilled  that 221b is going to be inhabited again.”

This is very exciting news for people like me who blew through seasons 1-3 on Netflix. I can’t wait to see the crime-solving duo back in action! Are you excited for the new season? Let us know below!
