Minutes after Sherlock Series 2 concluded with a bang in the UK, showrunner Stephen Moffat let loose that there will in fact be a third series. And actually the BBC ordered the third series when they commissioned the second.
So we can expect more Sherlock awesomeness in the future!
That said – just exactly when will Sherlock Series 3 air? That’s a harder question to answer. Both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch will be busy finishing and promoting The Hobbit in 2012 so I doubt we’ll see any more Sherlock until 2013 at the earliest.
Good news for American fans who’ve been left out of Sherlock Series 2 so far – we have confirmed airdates for series two on PBS.
Sherlock Series 2 will air in 3 installments on PBS Masterpiece on May 6, 13th and 20th. So, now we all know for sure when Sherlock Series 2 will air in the USA!
