Series four of Sherlock is literally so close now that Sherlockians across the globe really have to keep themselves back from not grinning from ear to ear and just breaking out into happy dances while thinking about it.
Of course, our excitement about series four is also triggered by all those teasers and clues that are shared by the Sherlock officials.
While we got used to seeing teasers all over Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, the Sherlock team did not stop there. They also took over the screens of London’s Piccadilly Circus to promote series four of the popular BBC show, as a new teaser shows.
Just like Moriarty in the show, the teaser was shown on one of the billboards of Piccadilly Circus. One could see the promo picture of John and Sherlock sitting in 221B, which is flooded, while yellow words appeared on the screen. They read the words Moriarty said in the broadcast at the end of series three: “Miss me?” We’ll also get to see Moriarty’s face very briefly after the words appear on the screen, which has us super psyched.
Does this mean we will actually meet Jim Moriarty again in series four? It is Moriarty, the criminal mastermind, after all but did he really pull it off to shoot himself in the head and surviving? That sounds even too complicated to do for Jim. According to Sherlock creator Mark Gatiss, Moriarty really is dead.
While we still have to make a proper deduction whether Moriarty will definitely come back from the dead in series four or not. We already know whom Sherlock will definitely face in upcoming episodes.
Culverton Smith (Toby Jones) will make his debut on Sherlock and from previous trailers, we are sure that he will be one of the creepiest villains we have yet to see on the show.
