The hit BBC show Sherlock airs in the U.S. for a third suspenseful season on January 19. Viewers have been waiting for two years to see how Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) really survived his jump off of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, and what happened after Dr. John Watson’s (Martin Freeman) doleful monologue in front of Sherlock’s “grave.”
In the seven-minute prequel, Many Happy Returns, Anderson is trying to convince Lestrade that Sherlock is alive, and John still has a tiny spark of hope that his best friend didn’t actually commit suicide.
In the season 3 trailer, Sherlock is shown to be alive, and the only person who seems to know is Sherlock’s powerful brother Mycroft (Mark Gatiss). During the two years of Sherlock’s fake death, John has moved on to find a woman and a new life without crime or thrill.
There will also be some newcomers to the show: Lars Mikkelsen (Flame and Citron) and Amanda Abbington (The All Together).
I’m looking forward to major turns of events, character development (especially that of John and Sherlock), and new brilliant cases.
Sherlock airs on Sundays at 10:00 P.M. on PBS Masterpiece.
