The BBC has announced that Toby Jones (THE MIST, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER) will star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the villain in Season 4 of Sherlock. The network didn't release any details on his character, however he will make his debut in the second episode of the three-episode series. Jones says he is "excited and intrigued by the character I shall be playing in Sherlock."

Co-creator, writer and executive producer Steven Moffat said, "Delighted to have Toby Jones on board, bringing to life one of [Sir Arthur Conan] Doyle’s finest villains," while fellow co-creator Mark Gatiss added, "We're thrilled to welcome one of our finest actors to the Sherlock family. I know Toby will embrace the part with true relish!"

The new season (which officially kicked off production on Monday) will begin "with the nation’s favourite detective, the mercurial Sherlock Holmes, back once more on British soil, as Doctor Watson and his wife, Mary, prepare for their biggest ever challenge - becoming parents for the first time."

Sherlock Season 4 is expected to debut in early 2017.

Now I wish Toby Jones would have been cast as Moriarty instead of the cheesy joke that this character is acted in the show. Toby jones will hopefully bring something very special to this series and make a great vilain. The show has become worse since season 2, I consider the first episode of that 2nd season a tv masterpiece. The christmas special should have been great but turned out boring and badly written, season 3 was just plain bad.... and now, we are talking about parenthood..... gosh.

I don't disagree with everything you said, but I do not agree with your thoughts on the casting of Moriarty. I thought Andrew Scott was a weird choice when he was first shown in the show, but then I grew to love his version of Moriarty. I think of it kind of like the thoughts with the Joker. Each actor brings their own type of thing and I think that Andrew Scott was perfectly insane and ingenious as Moriarty. He pissed people off with this annoying quirks which made him so much easier to hate

He pissed people off with this annoying quirks which made him so much easier to hate and to love to hate.
But yes, season 3 was a let down for me considering the excellent season 2.

this is exactly what I hate about andrew scott 's interpretation Ryan. Moriarty is everything but this, he uses all the cliches from other actor's insane serial killer crap we've seen a thousand times in the past. Moriarty is not the joker nor Anthony hopkin's hannibal Lector... this is such an easy hollywoodian cheesy path for a tv show that succeded at reinterpreting Conan doyle's work in almost every ways.... Playing evil clever and insanely looney doesn't work for me anymore, got tired of

So I've only seen up to the season finale of Season 3. I have not seen any Christmas specials that came afterwards, or anything like that. Is there anything out there where they resolve season 3's cliffhanger with the supposed return of Moriarty? Or is that a question mark? If so, do we suspect that Toby Jones' character is connected to that thread?

The Abominable Bride special from last year does (eventually) tie into the S3 finale, although its a bit inelegant. Worth watching at least once.
