British actor Benedict Cumberbatch gives a thumbs up at a promotional event in Tokyo July 16, 2013.
However, even though the new date got tongues wagging again, there is nothing that substantial to suggest that the date is accurate.
Sherlock executive producer, Sue Vertue, who is also the wife of Sherlock creator and executive producer, Steven Moffat, has come out to throw doubt over the new rumors.
Vertue has taken to social media networking site Twitter to post: "Not sure where #Sherlock latest rumoured tx date of 01/14 has come from. Not from me as tx date is not yet confirmed."
Although Vertue's comment seemed to debunk the rumors of a Jan. 1 premiere date, a careful look at exactly what she said reveals that she did not specifically exclude that date. She simply stated that she had no idea where that date had begun circulating from, and confirmed that the precise premiere date had not yet been officially finalized.
The newest premiere rumors were in fact started when blogger "Blogtor Who," who writes about TV shows including "Doctor Who," "Torchwood" and "The Sarah Jane Adventures," tweeted the date, according to Dan of Geek.
On Aug. 21, he tweeted: "Sherlock Series 3 Ep 1 is set in November and will air on Jan 1, 2014."
The blogger also refused to back down after Vertue's comments, pointing out that she had not specifically stated that the Jan. 1 date was wrong.
"She didn't actually deny the date. *coughs* read her tweet!" he tweeted at a fan who brought up Vertue's post.
He later also messaged another fan: "*coughs* Note: she did *not* deny the date."
