TV news: The return of ‘Sherlock’ and, um, ‘The Killing’

Good news, Cumberbitches: The long-rumored fourth season of “Sherlock” will indeed take place, with a standalone special followed by three episodes. The special will shoot in January, with the episodes filming later in the year. No word on exactly when these might air, but it’ll be a while — Martin Freeman, in an recent interview, said he thought “Sherlock” might be back for Christmas next year. It’s a long wait between seasons, but Sherlock and Watson are busy gentlemen. Nice to know that the game is back on . . .

And, meanwhile, the TV series that will not die (seriously! it won’t!) is back yet again: “The Killing,” after being cancelled twice by AMC, is back for a fourth season — on Netflix, with streaming beginning August 1. I’m attaching the trailer here just so that you can see that apparently it’s now raining blood in Seattle, that Linden still seems pretty messed-up, and that the hilarious words “The Final Season” appear. (This is, by my count, the show’s third final season.) Doesn’t Joel Kinnaman have something better to do?
