Over the past 24 hours, a rumor that made its way across Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook suggested that the Sherlock series 3 air date is set for November 24.

So is it true?

We reached out to PBS, who airs Sherlock in the United States, and they told us that no date has been set for Sherlock series 3 in the United States or United Kingdom at this time.

Now for our speculation: it’s probable that no date will be set until the majority of filming is completed. We know that Sherlock series 3 just began shooting episode 2 and the cast will take a break to attend to other duties before moving on to episode 3. So, we may be waiting a while to know the date.

There’s been speculation that Sherlock series 3 will premiere by the end of 2013 or early 2014 at the latest.

Check out what we know about the episode they’re shooting right now, and also be sure to see these photos depicting Sherlock right after the fall (moderate spoilers).

Here’s an additional bit of good news: we already know that Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson) are signed on for series 4.

We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as the Sherlock series 3 premiere release date is set!
