Sherlock season 4 is nearing its airdate, and fans can't wait to see stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman back on the case.

Of course, Cumberbatch and Freeman have become much bigger stars since their humble Sherlock beginnings; both actors have become big movie stars, with Cumberbatch having headlined franchises like Star Trek and Marvel's Doctor Strange, while Freeman led The Hobbit trilogy and even joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a supporting role during Captain America: Civil War.

It's only fitting then, that both stars have their new big-screen status honored the right way: by having Sherlock season 4's final episode get a movie theater release!

BBC announced that Sherlock season 4's third and final epiosde (titled "The Final Problem") will be showing in US theaters on January 16th and 18th at 7pm local time.
