Just as everyone hoped, the Sherlock panel at San Diego Comic Con revealed the first trailer for season 4.

This trailer is basically the pinnacle of Sherlock. It’s action-packed and stylish, while giving absolutely nothing away. The most shocking revelation is the presence of Benedict Cumberbatch‘s goatee, possibly thanks to the overlap between filming Sherlock¬†and Doctor Strange.

Oh, and for those who are keeping track of Sherlock‘s ever-increasing level of “darkness,” actress Amanda Abbington described this season as “the darkest yet and a real emotional rollercoaster.”

Season 4 is due to air in early 2017. We look forward to seeing all the fan theories about this trailer, because Sherlock fandom has a good six months to pick it apart.
