The mystery that shocked the world (not really) will finally be revealed when Sherlock returns with a brand new season on Wednesday, February 5 at 8.30pm on Channel Nine. The episode has already aired in Perth.

In the season two finale John Watson (Martin Freeman) saw his colleague and best friend Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) fall to his death. Or did he?

After two years of wondering how he did it, viewers will learn how Sherlock pulled off the greatest trick in history. But how will John react when he learns of the deception?

The season three premiere picks up two years after his “death” as Sherlock returns to London and discovers that a lot has changed. However, the detective soon needs his old friend’s help when his brother Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) investigates an underground terrorist network planning an attack somewhere in London.

All the old favourites are back including Mrs Hudson (Una Stubbs), D.I. Lestarde (Rupert Graves) and Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey), plus we meet John’s new girlfriend Mary (Amanda Abington) and a new nemesis for Sherlock: Charles Augustus Magnussen (Lars Mikkelsen).

In a season filled with terrorists, surprise revelations, a wedding and another baffling finale, once again the game is on for Sherlock and John.
