If you were one of the many desperate people waiting for the premiere date of the next season of Sherlock (like me) rejoice! Yesterday, the showrunners via the various official social media pages of the show announced the premiere date of Season 4.
The show will be back on the small screen on right at the start of the new year – January 1, 2017.

The announcement was proceeded by the release of the trailer for Season 4. Mind you, this is the same trailer we got back in July, just the new release date is padded at the end.
