Showrunner Steven Moffat was met with cheers when he promised Sherlock fans that they would be returning to 221B Baker Street this Christmas and premiered the first footage from the special Victorian episode of the show at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday.
The special will play in select movie theaters in the U.S. this December, Moffat revealed
The self-aware clip—which played after cast members like Benedict Cumberbatch apologized in a video for not being able to make the convention—acknowledged Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s long absence from the small screen. (The last episode of season three aired in January 2014.)
Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes quips, “I hardly knew myself [when I would come home], Mrs. Watson. That’s the trouble with dismembered country squires, they are notoriously difficult to schedule.”
The trailer earned laughs with its conclusion: “Coming soon…ish.” The episode will also be shown on British television over the Christmas season.
