BBC has released a brand new trailer for the third season of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role. The new trailer offers us a look at Sherlock’s return after season two’s surprising finale, picking up two years after the last episode. As Martin Freeman’s Dr. John Watson states: “I don’t care how you faked it…I want to know why.” A classy take on the classic detective, we can’t wait to see the third season of this fantastic series.

Official synopsis for “The Empty Hearse”:
“Two years after the devastating effects of “The Reichenbach Fall,” Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’! If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it though, he’s in for a very big surprise…”
Sherlock season 3 begins airing in the UK on BBC One on January 1st and follow in the U.S. on PBS on January 19th.
