“Sherlock” Season 3 finally has an air date – or does it?
Kpopstarz reports that the air date for Season 3, Episode 1: “The Empty Hearse” is October 31, as shown on IMDB.
However, producer Sue Vertue said on Twitter that fans the date wasn’t completely set in stone yet.
A fan tweeted, “@suevertue @IMDb is listing #Sherlock Series 3 as airing 31 Oct. Truly or are they placeholding? #tenterhooks”
“@Glorious_Dawn @IMDb . Place holding!” Vertue responded.
Series creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have spoken out about the much-anticipated episode, which they’ve promised will reveal how Sherlock survived his fall and apparent funeral in the Season 2 finale, as well as show Sherlock’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John’s (Martin Freeman) emotional reunion.
"It's a rational explanation," Moffat said, according to TV Guide. "When you see the answer, you'll see that yes, we did know in advance. We had to plot it out."
However, he added that the explanation is secondary to the emotional reunion between Sherlock and John, who believes that Sherlock is dead.
"That moment is quite electrifying," Gatiss said.
“It goes on and on. ... It's a long, complicated emotional journey and extremely funny,” Moffat added.
Moffat previously declared that three words, rat, wedding and bow, hinted at plots for each of Season 3’s three episodes. That means that somehow Sherlock’s death will involve a rat.
