It’s a wonderful day for fans of the BBC One series “Sherlock,” as the network just announced some goodies on the way.

According to the BBC One Twitter handle, the show will air a special in January 2015 before unleashing a fourth batch of three new installments.

Sherlock’s enemy Jim Moriarty “took over” the social media account with posts like “Did you miss me?” and, "#Sherlock, the hit @BBCOne drama, will return for a Special, followed by a series of three new episodes. #221back.”

Furthermore, Martin Freeman told press, "If that’s going to be a special — I’m speaking off-message here; if this was New Labour I’d get fired — I think that might be for next Christmas. A Christmas special. That’s what I understand."

"Sherlock" also stars Benedict Cumberbatch.
