The series co-producer, Mike Gatiss just revealed some new information on season 3. Apparently the first episode will be based on the short story “The Adventure of the Empty House” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
He’s coming back!! Not that we didn’t know it wasn’t going to happen.
Unfortunately for fans, filming is scheduled to start in 2013. It’s a long wait.
Until then, you can look forward to seeing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, with Martin Freeman (Watson) as Bilbo Baggins or the Star Trek sequel, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as Khan Noonien Singh.
Related news: CBS is doing an adaptation based on Sherlock Holmes stories ( either inspired by the success of Sherlock UK or by the latest Sherlock Holmes movies), a show named Elementary. The big reveal was when they said that the role of Watson will be played by Lucy Liu, because yeah..it’s Joan Watson! An interesting twist to the story and one I’m not sure will work so well if they immediately put Sherlock and Watson in a “will they/won’t they” relationship.
“A modern take on the cases of Sherlock Holmes..” they say. Sound familiar? Go check out the IMDb page for Sherlock UK and you’ll see what I mean.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
