With the "Sherlock" Season 4 release date just two weeks away, BBC has already revealed details about the upcoming season. For instance, the fourth season of the series' air dates for its three episodes has already been revealed by the British network. In addition, the network recently released a "Sherlock" Season 4 trailer which hints of a darker season up ahead.

BBC Reveals 'Sherlock' Season 4 Release Date

The British network will still follow a weekly release format for the three episodes of the series' fourth season. The first episode of "Sherlock" Season 4 release date is slated for a New Year launch  this coming January 1, 2017, reports Digital Trends. The first episode is titled "The Six Thatchers" which is thought to be a reference to Doyle's "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons" published in 1904 which tells the story of Sherlock and Watson's investigation of a case of smashed Napoleon Bonaparte statues.

The "Sherlock" Season 4 release dates for the second and third episodes have been revealed as well. Episode 2 titled "The Lying Detective" airs a week after on January 8, 2017 while the still unnamed episode 3 which is also the season's finale will air on January 15, 2017.

'Sherlock' Season 4 Trailer - A Darker Season Up Ahead

Meanwhile, BBC recently released a new "Sherlock" Season 4 trailer which is intriguing to say the least. While it is hard to make sense of due to its very short length, some say that based on the new trailer, a dark season is definitely up ahead as Sherlock will be pitted against the most challenging opponent he could ever have - himself.

That seems to be the case, and it may have something to do with Sherlock's own darker secrets. In the "Sherlock" Season 4 trailer, the protagonist was asked "What's the very worst thing you can do to your very best friends? Tell them your darkest secrets." Is the line a hint that Sherlock's own secrets will get in the way of whatever case he will be handling in the coming season?
