Sherlock was definitely one of the best series to be shown by the BBC over the last couple of years, and after an interesting ending to series 2, fans were left waiting for a solution how Sherlock faked his own death on the last episode, but they won’t have to wait much longer as series three of the show will be airing on New Years Day at 9pm in the UK.

Viewers in the US won’t get to watch it till January 19th 2014 however.

Sherlock executive producer Sue Vertue explains about the return of Sherlock in the following statement: “We are hugely excited about this next series of Sherlock, and have worked closely with our partners, Masterpiece and PBS, to bring these episodes to U.S. audiences in January. We promise our fans that Season 3 is worth waiting for.”

The first episode of the series will be “The Empty Hearse” and solves the mystery of Sherlock’s death. The second episode titled “The Sign of Three” and the third “The Last Vow”, the later of which we don’t have any information for.

But until we do, you can use some of your time by checking out the trailer below, or even by hitting up the official Sherlock Holmes website for an interactive version.
