Bloody hell, have you heard!? That consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes and his “platonic”, live- in assistant, Dr. Watson, are coming to San Diego Comic-Con!
All right, so as of now Sherlock stars and rising nerd icons, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, have not been confirmed as attending. Simmer down, Cumberbitches. But Entertainment Weekly has just announced PBS is bringing their Masterpiece hit to Comic-Con in what will be the first PBS program to ever hold a panel at the convention in its 44-year history!
Confirmed to appear are Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Sue Vertue, which surely isn’t too shabby of a line-up, now is it? They’re also promising “surprises”. Soo… a pre-recorded message from Cumberbatch and/or Freeman? Footage from Season 3? At the very least a frickin’ trailer? Come on, BBC, we’re frothing at the mouth for new Sherlock!
The series will return on BBC later this year, but for us in the U.S. we’ll be waiting until 2014 for Season 3. I’m sure we’ll hear a confirmation on that at the panel, of which Comic-Con will release the exact time and day for tomorrow, so stay tuned!
How awesome is it to see a show like Sherlock, one not one usually considered just for the nerd crowd, holding a panel at Comic-Con?
