Make sure you're sitting down right now, Sherlock fans, because you're about to get some exciting news.
Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed some minor details about the upcoming season and he is SUCH A TEASE.
Though he didn't give any plot points, because we all know Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss would terminate him, he did promise some interesting situations to come.

Ben told Empire:
'I can't give any plot away… but their pitch for the Christmas special and the series beyond that is just phenomenal. We've never seen [Sherlock] being really pressed yet, so that will be interesting.'
UMMMMM! Talk about not giving us ENOUGH information!
But that's not all the Sherlock-related news!
The Imitation Game actor also revealed just how long he wants to play the role… and you MIGHT be surprised to hear the answer!
'I'd like us to finish on a high, but we'll do it until we don't want to do it anymore. As long as the ideas are still there and the audience still wants it… I'd love to do it into old age, I really would.'
Can you imagine a 75-year-old Benedict busting criminals on the show?
That would be ADORABLE! Fingers crossed it happens!
