I saw this while browsing /r/television, and thought it would be of interest since we have a lot of Sherlock fans here on the O-Deck.
“We do have the next Sherlock announced, that is coming up about a year from now,” PBS President Paula Kerger told Zap2It. “As you know, Benedict has gotten to be somewhat popular since we began our work with him, and he very much wants to continue with Sherlock. As you know, they are produced almost like films and we’re hoping the next one will be about a year from now.”
I’m curious now as to when Benedict was filming Star Trek:Into Darkness and how that fell in with the shooting of Season 3. I wonder this because it’s possible that the Doctor Strange filming could be what is causing the delay. Of course it didn’t help that filming wouldn’t be starting until spring of this year. anyway.
I feel bad for all the fans waiting for new episodes. On the other hand it just gives folks like me more time to catch up.
