‘Sherlock’ season 3 teases the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character

Benedict Cumberbatch’s return as Sherlock Holmes for BBC One’s Sherlock season 3 teased in new trailer.

Here’s the first teaser trailer for the third season of the hit BBC series Sherlock.

The season opens with most of the characters reacting to the fact that Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) isn’t quite dead, and so in the teaser we see the shadow of his return to the world. Also, Martin Freeman is donning an intense new mustache.

Talking with Inside Movies at EW, Cumberbatch reflected on the previous season and looking ahead.

“It’s great,” he says, calling from the London set. “The second series was weird. Because it was such a phenomenal success, we were a bit distanced from the routine and the inhabiting of those characters. This season, straight into it, comfortable. And [the characters all] immediately fit under our skins. Really hard work because it wouldn’t be a good show unless we were trying to evolve it and set ourselves new challenges and standards. But I love it. I’m very fond of playing him. You’re in for a treat this series.”

Can the Star Trek Into Darkness star give fans a preview or a hint?

“Ummmmm…no,” Cumberbatch says. “Nothing that’s worth my liver or whatever part of my body they’d remove if I said anything.”

Pre-production on the third and final episode began awhile back, with an October expected premiere – more here
