• Gosh, first Merlin, now this… :'((

    But at least it’s sure that when we get series 3, it will be beyond awesome. That worths the wait.

    Crapola, living in North America it looks like we’ll have to wait until 2014 to see season 3. Mind you, cannot find anything official on the BBC site, and surely they were filming in Cardiff and London this summer, maybe this is just an overhyped story?

  • Dammit…..

  • That Awkward Silent

    Well at least we’ll have Cumberbatch and Freeman in The Hobbit to ease the pain.

  • When I saw the title of this report, I died a little on the inside. Oh god, not MORE WAITING.

  • Peripherus


  • Nick Ferrazza

    To paraphrase Marge Simpson, well at least it will get made.

  • My main concern with Shelock was always that it might get in the way of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. To be honest, I’d rather anything involving Moffat be pushed back until 2014.

  • Sophia Jones

    this is like bubbles the fish in finding nemo: “sherlockians aren’t meant to be waiting. it does things to them” and then every single time something Sherlock comes up we’re all like “SHERLOCK SHERLOCK SHERLOCK” and then it turns out to be an announcement about MORE WAITING

  • James Bond

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This must be the work of Moriarty!

  • There was an update to this. Sue Vertue posted on her twitter that the delay in production wouldn’t cause any delay with any airdates.

  • Just got back from A&E after punching a wall so many times… not really, obviously. Really gutted though! :(

  • Whitney Howard

    So this is how time ussually passes……..REALLY slowly! I think we should be given the proper title : The Fans Who Waited…

    • brad renfroe

      is that a doctor who reference?

  • nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • Morgause137

    We need to have a little chat with Steven Moffat…

  • Sherlock Series 3 will very likely air in Autumn 2013. They start filming in March and it takes just under 4 months to film (based on Series Two’s filming schedule). Add in post production time and I’m pretty confident that Series 3 will air around November/December time.
