When Sherlock debuted on the BBC, it was clearly head-and-shoulders above any other television show in existence. The first three seasons offer some of the most stirring and intelligent hours anybody can have in front of a screen.
Unfortunately, we've been waiting and waiting and WAITING for Season 4 and for a while there, it didn't look like it'd ever happen. Benedict Cumberbatch has gone on to make big bucks in Hollywood (though all those roles are well beneath his talent) and Martin Freeman found fame in Lord of the Rings, so they were understandably employed elsewhere.
But now they're back and Season 4 is set to premiere on January 1, 2017! Teaser trailer here:
This trailer is a little too action-y, but I'm assuming that's for the simple sake of titillation and promotion and I would HOPE the series doesn't actually go too far in that direction. Its intelligence is what has always set it apart...

I don't Care for "Sherlock Holmes." This is in the Line of The "Harry Potter" Movies and Their Sequels. Books as well. In fact, I was Speaking to Someone a few weeks back, who had Said the Last one that was Done, was not the Author's Best.
There are just Much you can do with a Series. I don't even Watch Soaps anymore.

The show wasn't/isn't head and shoulders above any tv show out there by any stretch, in my opinion. But I love the show and I'm stoked for it to come out1
