The worst possible news: Sherlock won't return in 2012

 executive producer Sue Vertue has dismissed suggestions apparently made by husband Steven Moffat that the programme will return in 2012

The showrunner was supposed to have said on Friday (January 20) that a third series of the BBC drama - which concluded last Sunday (January 15) - would air later this year

Moffat also apparently claimed that scenes showing how Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) survived his rooftop plummet in series two finale 'The Reichenbach Fall' had already been filmed. 

In response to the comments, Vertue has taken to Twitter and clarified that a 2012 Sherlockreturn is "sadly unlikely". 

"Sorry to be a killjoy but @steven_moffat didn't actually mean S3 of #sherlock would tx before end of year," she wrote. "I think that is sadly unlikely."

Moffat has, however, said that fans will not have to wait "that long" for the next series of Sherlock.

He confirmed this week that a third run of the show had been secretly commissioned along with its second last year

Did anyone actually expect it to return this year?

I'm fine with 2013 if that is it. I want to wait a little bit of time to build up that anticipation. Plus, if any fandom can keep themselves going until then, it is Sherlock.

Not really, I was kinda like "Buh?" when Moffat said that

yeah, I just kind of rolled my eyes and assumed he was lying/trolling/meant something different

I thought he meant it would film sometime this year, like the season that just aired filmed during last summer.
