Here’s some things to keep you busy as you’re waiting for Sherlock, Season 4

Something’s coming…

according to this brand-new trailer of Sherlock, Season 4.

While we’re all wishing that 2017 could come a little quicker, we’re still trying to decipher what this trailer means. Did Moriarty never die and his death was all a ruse? Or if he is dead, how is he managing to execute his evil plan in the afterlife? Who is this ominous-laughing new guy? There are so many questions! But whatever it is, we’ve gathered a few Sherlock-related things that will help as we impatiently wait for the new season of 2017 to hit the screens.

Sherlock Personality Quiz

Which Sherlock character are you? This personality quiz will tell you what character you would be if you lived in the Sherlock world. Are you Sherlock, Mycroft, Watson, or Mary? And if you need a little refresher of all the characters between now and the release of season 4, there is a Season 3 Character Hub.

Speaking of a refresher, it’s been so long since Season 3 came out, so do you need to rewatch it before Season 4 begins?

To test your Season 3 knowledge, there are some quizzes on all three episodes.
Episode 1
Episode 2
Episode 3

With questions like, “When Moriarty’s dead body is used to impersonate Sherlock’s for the Reichenbach Fall, contact lenses are inserted to make his manic eyes blue instead of,” are you actually Sherlocked?

Cast Comic-Con Skit

Many Sherlock cast members had the chance to attend this year’s comic-con, but with budget cuts they couldn’t afford to sent everyone. Watch this video on how they picked who made the cut to go.

Hopefully, that satisfies your need for more Sherlock even if it’s just for a few minutes. So until season four begins, we’ll leave you with this question…
