'Sherlock' Mini-Episode Released: Watch A Prequel To Season 3

"Sherlock" fans, Christmas Eve is your lucky day. The BBC released a seven-minute mini-episode that acts as a prequel to "Sherlock" Season 3. "Many Happy Returns" doesn't give us all the answers, but it hints at what Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) has been up to.

The video (watch it above) was written by producers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and teases Season 3 with mysterious crime-solving. Just remember, #SherlockLives.

"Sherlock" will air on PBS Masterpiece on Jan. 19. at 10 p.m.
