'Sherlock' Season 4 Spoilers & Premiere Date Give Fans Agita

"I always hear 'punch me in the face' when you're speaking ... but it's usually subtext." My goodness, how can you not love the show Sherlock? If you haven't been watching the series, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, spend that less than $10 to get Netflix and binge-watch immediately. Right now. It's worth it. Because season 4 is officially official, Sherlock spoilers and rumors are running rampant.

Apparently, before the premiere, there will be a one-episode special. "There is an idea for this one-off special that's such a good idea," Martin Freeman, who plays Dr. Watson, said. "As I was listening to it, I thought 'we've just got to do this.' It's a fantastic, really mouth-watering idea. But I really don't know when we are going to get to do it."

The Epoch Times reported that season 4 will premiere on January 2016. But because Cumberbatch and Freeman are so busy, everything is up in the air. And January 2016! Way too long to wait.

Hopefully fans will get to see something in 2015, but as Martin says, to get these two stars together for filming seems to be a monumental task.

Still, some SPOILERS have come out regarding season 4. If you haven't watched the series yet (seriously?), then you may want to stop reading now.

Reportedly, Dr. John Watson and Mary Mortsan (Amanda Abbington, who's Freeman's girlfriend IRL) will be parents in season 4. Can't wait to see a little baby Watson! Mortsan told The Vulture, "They'd probably be reckless because they're both quite psychopathic. That kid has got nothing to worry about." Imagine Sherlock babysitting. So much good stuff to come. This is torturous.

Janine (Yasime Akram), Mary's friend and guest at the wedding, may return. Maybe there will be an awkward date or two with her and Sherlock. On top of that, fans have been hoping for Irene Adler (Lara Pulver) to return, but sadly, that might not happen.

"The danger is you have a successful character like Irene Adler and she makes a massive impact because that story is so perfect, but if she then moves in around the corner, it becomes a bit cozy," Mark Gatiss, series creator who also plays the brother to Sherlock, told Digital Spy.

Also, apparently Sherlock has another brother, Sherrinford Holmes, in some of the short stories. A lot of speculation is going around that Tom Hiddleston of The Avengers could join the cast. There would be so much crazy handsome hunky Britishness happening if that turns out to be true that everyone's televisions will seriously explode. A girl can dream ...

Lots to look forward to for the next, sigh, two years! So unfair. These guys really need to be less busy. And Hiddleston + Cumberbatch, can we please make that happen?! They could read a phone book together for all I care.

For now, enjoy this Sherlock blooper!

Do you watch Sherlock? Are you excited for the premiere even though it's so far away?
