Throughout "The Empty Hearse," characters such Anderson will come-up with their own version of how Sherlock survived. Also, the review indicated that a good number of people knew that Sherlock is not dead, which is going to infuriate Watson.
The premiere episode, "The Empty Hearse," will pick-up two years after Sherlock jumped down from the roof of St. Bartholomew's Hospital to his fake death. The second episode is called "The Sign of Three," while the third episode of Season 3 is "His Last Vow."
