TVLine Items: Sherlock Season 3 Delayed, HBO Orders Beyoncé-Centric Documentary and More!

Fans eagerly awaiting a new season of Sherlock will have to be patient a tad bit longer — particularly here in the U.S.

Production on the third cycle of the sleuth drama has been pushed back from January to March, thus delaying its BBC debut until late 2013, has confirmed.

Sherlock‘s stateside home, PBS, can’t launch Season 3 until the British run has concluded, meaning that it likely won’t air until even later in 2013 or possibly early 2014.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

• HBO has ordered a documentary following multihyphenate mega-star Beyoncé, who will direct and exec-produce the film. The flick, which boasts an “intimate” look at the Grammy winner’s life, premieres Feb. 16, 2013.

      • People don’t really go to heaven when they die. They’re taken to a special room and burned.

          • 1. It’s a quote from the show. 2. It’s “you’re” not “your”.

  • Sherlock being delayed is an absolute tragedy! Such a brilliant series and the US has to wait… sometimes it is just depressing to miss out on all the wonderful television across the pond!

    • “Us has to wait”… Are you serious? Do you *know* how long does non-US have to wait for (legal) 90% of USA tv production?

      • And from what I hear, it airs all over the place; different seasons on different networks (and not even all seasons). Is that true?

  • It won’t be that noticeable… its already an age between seasons, and seasons are three episodes… so, whats another couple of months? Ah well… I look forward to it whenever it lands.

  • It sucks that Sherlock is getting delayed, but not surprising given that Cumberbatch and Freeman are in hot demand right now.

  • If you are going to delay such a wonderful show than they should make an extra episode, or 2 or 47.

  • Why does PBS keep getting Sherlock? It took them almost six months to air season two after BBC UK did! Just air it on the same day on BBC America like you do with Doctor Who! What a strange and awful arrangement for US fans

  • I’m happy to wait as long as Cumberbatch and Freeman are still with it. I don’t care how long we have to wait in order to work around their busy schedules.
    Its a rare British series that can keep their cast together this long, so I applaud both them and the showrunners for making it work.

  • Okay, that didn’t make my day. That’s as bad as the wait for Louie! Maybe worse! It feels like ages since I saw the last installment. I think my friend got me hooked on that show sometime last spring and I caught all the episodes online. So that means close to a 2-year wait then? That is worse than Louie.

  • Disappointed about Sherlock, but it’s probably all the better for PBS ratings. When it comes back it’ll be a show with two movie stars, not just a show with Those Guys You Saw in That Thing.

  • Not surprised. Both Cumberbatch and Freeman are two of the hottest properties right now. It also makes sense for the show, as after the release of Hobbit and Star Trek, both its stars will be huge as hell. Good for them and good for the show.

  • Would this delay give the Elementary people enough time to craft a Holmes is dead season finale and an oh-no-he’s-not season opener to come out before the UK show and steal the Sherlock people’s thunder ?!

    • :eeek: sorry for the Holmes is dead spoiler :(

  • The spoiled is not he is dead it is he is not dead.

  • So does this mean Moffat can give us more Who? (Yeah, I know he won’t, but it never hurts to ask)
