We’ve got some bad news for Sherlock fans today – the third series of Sherlock will not begin filming until early 2013 at the earliest.
So, we have a very long wait to find out how the cliffhanger at the end of series 2 will be resolved.
Why the long wait?
Well, everyone involved with the show is busy. The showrunner Stephen Moffat is busy with Doctor Who (arguably a bigger and more important show for the BBC). Benedict Cumberbatch is busy filming The Hobbit and the Star Trek sequel. Martin Freeman is also busy with The Hobbit.
It could be more than a year before Sherlock graces our TV screens again.
It’s going to be a long wait!
