Benedict Cumberbatch is back as the detective everyone loves (sometimes in spite of his manners) in BBC’s “Sherlock.” The good news? Holmes and Watson’s latest adventure landed a new title — “The Abominable Bride” — and the special will air in the U.S. and U.K. simultaneously for the first time in series history. The slightly bad news is fans will have to wait until New Year’s Day to catch the new entry, as “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride” debuts January 1, 2016.
The trailer features Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as Watson in clips from the special. It also ominously teases plot details and shows the dark, snowy atmosphere that will make up “The Abominable Bride.” The trailer doesn’t give viewers much new footage, but it does reveal a few more concrete details about the highly-anticipated special. Viewers can also catch the special in theaters, if they prefer a big screen to a small one for their Cumber-watching.
Production on the fourth season of “Sherlock” is set to begin in the spring, so fans shouldn’t have to wait too long after the special to get even more of their favorite crime-solving duo.
