Sherlock super fans have been eagerly awaiting the news that the BBC would reveal about the smash hit drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
With the promise of the potential return of Moriarty at the end of last seasons finale, people could barely contain themselves when the Beeb took to Twitter yesterday to hint at upcoming secrets being revealed.
They have since let fans know that their favourite detective "will return for a Special, followed by a series of three new episodes."
They went on, "After the briefest of exiles, #Sherlock will return to face one of his biggest mysteries yet..."
Shooting on the Sherlock special "will begin in January 2015, with the series shooting later next year."
Fans prepare as the BBC promise, "to unleash the most shocking and surprising series of #Sherlock yet. The only thing is to expect is the unexpected..."
Some fans are beyond excited:
While others are rather unimpressed with the 'news'.
