Set in modern-day New York City, former Scotland Yard consultant Sherlock Holmes is the dangerously eccentric consulting detective who is addicted to impossible cases. Together with Dr. Joan Watson, his “sober companion” turned partner in detection, they take on some of the strangest crimes New York has ever seen. Returning to the scene of the crime, they assist the police in uncovering clues that unlock the city's most sinister secrets. When Sherlock's estranged brother Mycroft reunites with him, events unfold that ultimately affect Sherlock and Watson’s close relationship. In the wake of a crisis of treason and murder, secrets are revealed that will force Sherlock to re-evaluate everything. Only to the very sharpest minds do the incredible solutions seem elementary.

Special features include a gag reel and “Holmes Goes Home” featurette.
