‘Sherlock’ premiere date: Production gets underway Spring; there may be a crossover and character death

“Sherlock” won’t begin production until this spring, as Kpop Starz reports, which was also mentioned by show creator Steve Moffat, though he did not give any specific date when it would begin production.

“I think we’re starting next year, April-ish,” Moffat said to Collider last year, which would make sense as the show will premiere in 2017.

“We do have the next ‘Sherlock’ announced, that is coming about a year from now,” PBS President Paula Kerger said as a confirmation when the show will come out. She has also said that Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock Holmes, wants to continue working on the series.

Kpop Starz also said that a possible crossover with “Doctor Who” has been stated by Moffat, but no further information have been given about it.

With “Sherlock” still a year away from its next season premiere, there are speculations as to what might possibly happen in it. One involves the death of Watson’s (Martin Freeman) wife, Mary (Amanda Abbington), which was speculated on in this Parent Herald post.

Show creators Steve Moffat and Mark Gatiss have hinted season four will be dark and will involve much emotional upheaval. It’s also known that in the original books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that Watson had a short-lived marriage.

This has fueled fan speculation that Mary will die somewhere along the series, and season four might be the time it will happen.

Freeman himself has stated that somewhere along the way, Mary will die as the show, even though it is set in modern times, still follows the stories as it was written back then by Sir Conan Doyle.

Still another speculation has been brought up by Cross Map, as it says that there might be a third Holmes after Sherlock and Mycroft. This is based on Mycroft mentioning about what happened to “the other one.” The third Holmes is said to be Sherrinford and he might possibly be played by Tom Hiddleston.

The speculations may or may not be true, and as there is still no official word yet on what would be coming for season four, most of these rumors still have no basis as of yet.
