Netflix was vocal in announcing this morning that series 2 of Steven Moffat’s wildly popular Sherlock is now available for instant streaming.
The television and film streaming service sent out an e-mail to its customers this morning announcing the news. “Becoming embroiled in the complex plans of the dangerous and desirable Irene Adler, Sherlock needs every one of his remarkable skills to survive,” they write.
Until today, only season one of the BBC program had been available to Netflix users. This’ll make it much easier for newcomers, like myself, to see the show legally. Unsurprisingly, the show has a 4.5 star rating made up of over 1 million reviews.
A couple weeks ago Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch spoke about filming of season 3. “We’ve had a couple of meetings but I don’t think we’re filming until January. I need to have some more talks with [Moffat and co-creator Mark Gatiss] and tease them about the fact that I do have a career outside of Sherlock now, so they’d better f*cking write something.” Around the same time, Moffat revealed three words that clue us in on what is to come in the next three episodes: rat, wedding, and bow.
