Martin Freeman is dropping clues. Independent reports Dr. John Watson’s alter-ego told Graham Norton that the fourth season (possibly the final season) of Sherlock should premiere sometime around Christmas, 2016. In UK, the Sherlock TV show airs on BBC One, and usually debuts around January 1st. In the US, Sherlock typically kicks off on PBS a few weeks later.
The BBC and PBS finally managed to coordinate their schedules for the Victorian special episode of Sherlock, “The Abominable Bride.” Both networks aired the special on January 1, 2016. The upcoming three-episode Sherlock, season four, features Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch), back in UK, as Watson and new bride, Mary Morstan (Amanda Abbington), ready themselves for the birth of their child.
