Fans have had to wait a great deal between seasons to watch "Sherlock" which first aired in 2011. The first season only consisted of three movie-length episodes, as did the second.
The third season is all set to air in late October, early November 2013, as per IMDB. Benedict Cumberbatch was quoted as saying, "Hopefully we're going to broadcast it simultaneously here and in the States by the end of the year, I'm hoping. That is a hope that we talked about a while ago" as per BBC America.
The first episode of Season 3 is titled "The Empty Hearse" and is based on Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Empty House."
This story by Doyle was also the one where he resurrected Holmes. So it makes sense that it should be the next one in the "Sherlock" series since Sherlock was killed off at the end of the second season and will now be resurrected.
