Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective is back on the case with Sherlock: Season Two arriving on DVD and Blu-ray on May 22nd from BBC Home Entertainment.

Benedict Cumberbatch (War Horse, the upcoming Star Trek 2) returns as Holmes and Martin Freeman (The Office, the upcoming The Hobbit) is back as Dr. John Watson in three new 90-minute stories from writers and executive producers Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen).

Inspired by Doyle’s classic tales of the brilliant crime-solving icon, Sherlock: Season Two is a spectacular blend of the 21st century and the original wit and spirit of the mysteries that will have keep you on the edge of your seat.

The second season premiered in Canada on February 2, 2012 on BBC Canada, and will launch in the U.S. on May 6, 2012 as part of Masterpiece Mystery! on PBS.

In A Scandal in Belgravia, the first episode of the new season, Sherlock gets embroiled in the complex plans of the dangerous and desirable Irene Adler (Lara Pulver, True Blood), and finds himself employing every one of his remarkable skills to survive as the unlikely duo square off in a battle of wits…and perhaps emotions. 

In The Hounds of Baskerville, the increasingly popular detective and his companion Watson travel to the wilds of Dartmoor to investigate the claims of Henry Knight (Russell Tovey, Being Human) and discover a supernatural beast lurking in the eerie landscape. Meanwhile, Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott, The Hour) is still out there in the shadows, and is determined to bring Sherlock down—at whatever the cost—in The Reichenbach Fall. Nothing is what it seems, and nothing will be the same again, when this thrilling season reaches its conclusion. 

The first season of Sherlock, now available on DVD, received 4 primetime Emmy® nominations and won a Peabody Award. USA Today called it “…the most unabashedly entertaining new show of the season…” and The New York Times said “The appeal is elementary: good, unpretentious fun, something that’s in short supply around here.”
