'Sherlock' Season 3 Gets U.S. Premiere Date


The crime drama series will return January 19, 2014 on PBS and air back-to-back with another hit British series, 'Downton Abbey'.

The long wait will be over soon. "Sherlock" season 3 has got its U.S. premiere date after the last season aired in 2012. The British crime drama series is now slated to return on PBS January 19, 2014 at 10 P.M.

This means the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring series will air back-to-back with another popular British drama series, "Downton Abbey", which has been scheduled to return with the fourth season on January 5. The U.K. premiere date of "Sherlock" season 3 has not been announced yet by BBC.

"We are hugely excited about this next series of 'Sherlock', and have worked closely with our partners, Masterpiece and PBS, to bring these episodes to U.S. audiences in January," says 'Sherlock' executive producer Sue Vertue in a statement. "We promise our fans that season 3 is worth waiting for."

"We love that Sherlock fans are so passionate and eager to see season 3," PBS chief programmer Beth Hoppe adds. "The pairing of 'Downton Abbey' and 'Sherlock' in January offers a blockbuster night of British drama only on PBS stations."

PBS Masterpiece executive producer Rebecca Eaton gushes that the new episodes are "fantastic." She continues, "They are jaw dropping. They are like small movies. Benedict and Martin are so in their Sherlock-Watson groove. They are so comfortable with that relationship it's like being in the room with them."

The first teaser previously released for the third season revealed that Sherlock's pretty much alive after he faked his suicide. The first episode of season 3, "The Empty Hearse", is expected to answer the big question on how he survived the fall. The upcoming installment will also feature Watson (Martin Freeman) and Mary Morstan's (Amanda Abbington) wedding.
