SHERLOCK Season 3 Premiere Date Pushed to Late 2013 or Early 2014

     November 26, 2012


It appears that Sherlock fans will have to wait a bit longer to get some closure to that season two finale cliffhanger.  Season three of the excellent BBC series had been poised to start production this coming January for a Fall 2013 debut, but EW now reports that the start date has now been pushed back to March in order to accommodate the busy schedules of stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.  Cumberbatch is gearing up to shoot director Bill Condon’s untitled WikiLeaks project and Freeman is likely needed for some additional Hobbit filming now that Peter Jackson has expanded the adaptation to three films instead of two, so the move makes sense.

Nevertheless, the longer wait for more Sherlock isn’t exactly fun.  Series creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss previously teased three tantalizing key words for the upcoming season, so at least we know we’re in for a treat.  The BBC will air season three first, with PBS noting that the third season will run here in the U.S. in late 2013 or early 2014.

      It’s not the BBC’s fault. As much as I don’t like it either, it’s due to Cumberbatch’s and Freeman’s workloads. We should be grateful Cumberbatch is even returning at all. The guy’s popularity is sky rocketing. As for Merlin, thank god they’ve called it a day on that dross.
