'Sherlock' Finally Has An Official Premiere Date, So Let's Celebrate Our Emotions About It

Share

We're fine. We're fine. We're not at all emotionally compromised. The U.S. air date for Sherlock Season 3 was announced. We have a date. It is Jan. 19. Let's try not to freak out too much.

The best part about all of this? The show will almost definitely premiere in the U.K. at least a few weeks before the PBS airing — our money's on late December or New Year's Day — which means Sherlock Holmes and John Watson and all their angst and sexual tension (oh, and their crime-solving) will be back in our lives even sooner.

Another good part the Sherlock Season 3 air date? It means that the existence of Sherlock season 3 was not just the product of our collective fan imaginations. We'd seen on-set pictures and all that jazz, but we still had our doubts.

It's been two years since Season 2 ended, and, in that time, the Sherlock fandom has gone a little, well, crazy. Good crazy! Fun crazy! But yes, very very stir crazy.

This is like finding out a loved-one is coming back from war, except for it's the fun TV version where no one was actually in danger in the first place. So let's celebrate with a butt-load of Sherlock gifs, shall we?

Just look at that SWAG.
