Netflix availability

Sherlock seasons one through three are streaming on Netflix in the United Kingdom and United States. However, fans in several different countries — Italy, Spain, Denmark, Portugal, Norway, Finland and Sweden, at least — have access to the latest season four episodes on the subscription streaming site. So if you have friends or family who live in any of those countries and you're a hardcore Sherlockian, now may be the time to plan a trip.

When it's coming to the U.S.

Sherlock airs on Sunday nights on PBS as part of the Masterpiece series. The episodes are uploaded to the Masterpiece website shortly after they air. If you prefer watching on Netflix, Netflix Life guesses that U.S. subscribers to the streaming service will likely have to wait until June or July for season four to become available.

Another option is to leave your house to get your Sherlock fix. The season four finale, Sherlock: The Final Problem will play in movie theaters nationwide for two nights only: Jan. 16 and Jan. 18. Tickets are available on FathomEvents.com.
