SAN DIEGO, July 19 (UPI) -- "Sherlock" co-creator Steven Moffat says John Watson, Sherlock Holmes' sidekick in sleuthing on the British drama series, will get married next season.

"Hot off the presses from 110 years ago ... John does get married," Moffat told the crowd at Comic-Con in San Diego Thursday. "The secret was out before you were born."

The contemporary London-set show is based on the 19th century detective stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In the modern incarnation, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Holmes, while Martin Freeman plays Watson.

Moffat offered a glimpse of the second episode of Season 3 in which Watson walks down the aisle.

"There's slightly more humor, it's slightly more real," Moffat said of the episode. "It's a very unusual episode, but I think it's everything you'd hoped it would be."

TVGuide.com said Season 3 of "Sherlock" is to air in 2014, with the first episode taking place two years after the Season 2 finale.

The celebrity news website did not say who Watson will wed.
