Sherlock Season 3 SPOILERS: Mini Episode ‘Many Happy Returns’ To Air On Christmas Day

SIGN UP TO RECEIVE THE LATEST NEWS FROM FASHION&STYLE

Fans of “Sherlock” have something to look forward to (besides the Season 3 premiere, of course): a mini episode titled “Many Happy Returns” will air on the BBC’s interactive Red Button service beginning on Christmas Day, writes Hypable.

The synopsis reads, “Sherlock has been gone for 2 years. But someone isn’t quite convinced that he’s dead…”

Could that someone be Watson? Whoever it is, they’re right! As the Season 3 trailer says, “#SherlockLives.”

There’s no word yet on whether Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will star in the episode, or whether it will focus on other characters or even fans of the detective.

The news is surprising as a “Sherlock” producer had previously gone on the record to say there would be no Christmas special.

“Sorry to squash the rumour but we haven’t shot a #Sherlock Xmas special I’m afraid,” tweeted producer Sue Vertue in September.
Vertue also seemed to deny rumors of the January 1 premiere date, which was leaked in August by fan blogger Blogtor Who.

“Not sure where #Sherlock latest rumoured tx date of 01/14 has come from. Not from me as tx date is not yet confirmed.”
Blogtor Who continued to insist his information was correct. “she didn't actually deny the date. *coughs* read her tweet!” he tweeted at a fan who pointed out Vertue’s correction. “*coughs* Note: she did *not* deny the date,” he tweeted at another “Sherlock” fan.

As we previously reported, the first full episode of Season 3, “The Empty Hearse,” will air on January 1; the second episode, “The Sign of Three” will air later that same week on January 4, while the third and final episode, “His Last Vow” will air on January 12. “Sherlock” Season 3 will begin airing in the US on January 19.
