Good news for fans of the BBC's Lanky Sleuth: star Benedict Cumberbatch has confirmed he and co-star Martin Freeman will be coming back for a fourth series of the show. "We've agreed to two more [series of Sherlock] but I could get into trouble for saying that," Cumberbatch told RadioTimes (via), promising a continued alternative to CBS's Hackers Investigates, with Lucy Liu. "All I know at the moment is we're doing these three [episodes of the upcoming series] and another three. I just don't know what there is beyond that."
The first of the new batch of episodes begins shooting next Monday, and the actor says they'll likely air in the UK around Christmas. After all, the gift of Cumberbatch is the gift that keeps on giving off the vibe he's probably on the spectrum.
