LONDON, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- New episodes of the British detective drama "Sherlock" likely won't air in the United States until late 2013 or early 2014, EW.com reported.

Production on the show's third season has been pushed back from January to March to accommodate the film schedules of the show's stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, the entertainment news website said.

The BBC has not announced a U.K. premiere date for Season 3 of the show, which is set in modern-day London, EW.com said. Each season of the series airs in England before its U.S. broadcast.

Cumberbatch will soon be seen in "Star Trek Into Darkness" and Freeman is the star of "The Hobbit."
