“I don’t care how you faked it. I want to know why.” – John Watson
Two years ago, Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) was blackmailed by Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott) into discrediting himself and committing suicide to protect John Watson (Martin Freeman) and Sherlock’s close circle of associates.
Except Sherlock didn’t die. He faked his death and let the world believe that he was gone… until now.
“Sherlock” Season 3 is heading to BBC One and PBS in early 2014. BBC has now released a new trailer that finds Sherlock reuniting with his brother, Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) and scaring the hell out of Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs) while also attempting to prevent a terrorist attack in London.
Unseen but heard is the icy reunion between John and Sherlock, who hints that Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey) was the key to his survival.
The new season of “Sherlock” begins January 1 on BBC One, while the American premiere will follow on January 19 on PBS.
