Sherlock's Return Causes an Internet Fandom Meltdown

Jul 2 2014 - 5:52pm

You may have heard some strange noises coming through the Internet pipes today — the sound of a fandom having a bit of a breakdown at the news that Sherlock is, in fact, returning for a fourth season [1]. With shooting not even beginning until January 2015, fans have a long time to wait. So the news was met with all sorts of conflicting emotions from shock to joy to sorrow to deep anger at the show's creators.

Take a peak at how the Interwebs dealt with the news and tide yourself over until 2015 with a look back at Sherlock season three [2].
