'Sherlock' Season 4 Has FINALLY Got Its Release Date

It's coming sooner than expected...

New Sherlock

Attention all Cumberbitches – the new season of Sherlock is set to hit our screens on January 1.

Benedict Cumberbatch's fourth season as the world's greatest detective opens with an episode called The Six Thatchers, which many fans believe will be an adaptation of the short story The Adventure Of The Six Napoleons, where Holmes investigates a murder connected to the breaking of six busts of the French leader. This theory assumes that Margaret Thatcher's head will stand in for Napoleon.

If you missed the trailer that was released a few months back, you can enjoy it below...
