First Photo Released of "Sherlock" Season 3

Posted Tuesday November 5, 2013 6:21 PM GMT

Whetting fans appetites for the return of the popular BBC series, the network released the first official photo for "Sherlock" on Tuesday (November 5).

In the photo, a forlorn-looking Watson sits with a hot beverage at a diner while his partner stands just outside the window looking in.

The snapshot refers fans back to Sherlock's faked death from a rooftop fall in the season two finale. However, Watson was not in on the ruse, which explains his down expression in the pic.

Returning to U.S. audiences on January 19th at 10:00pm on PBS, the popular show stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character, with Martin Freeman playing his trusty sidekick.
