Netflix’s Enola Holmes 2 has landed, bringing Millie Bobby Brown back on our screens as Sherlock’s little sister Enola.
The sequel, which is based on the mystery book series of the same name by author Nancy Springer, sees Enola jump into action with her new detective agency and also brings back Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes after their two separate cases end up being intertwined.
The movie might only just have landed on the streamer, but already thoughts are turning towards a third outing.
Well, there were some hints and teases of further escapades towards the end of Enola Holmes 2, with one classic Holmes character unveiled and another making their debut in the credits scene.
But can we expect Brown to be back for another mystery on Netflix? Who else from the cast would be back, and when would it be released? Read on for everything you need to know about Enola Holmes 3.

Will there be an Enola Holmes 3?
A third Enola Holmes film hasn't been confirmed just yet, but there's certainly plenty of scope for a third outing based on Nancy Springer's book series.
There have been seven Enola Holmes books so far, meaning the series could potentially run and run.
Fortunately, Brown already has plans for a third movie, telling ScreenRant: "Yes, absolutely. I would love to be a part of another one. I would love to see her do more cases, be put under pressure, be put in crazy situations, make her feel vulnerable again. I absolutely love seeing her back at work."
We'll keep this page updated as soon as we have any news either way as to whether an Enola Holmes 3 has been greenlit by Netflix.
When would an Enola Holmes 3 be released?
It's not yet clear when Enola Holmes 3 would be released. It took just over two years for Enola Holmes 2 to be released after the first film, so if the production team keep up that rate we could potentially expect a third film to be out in 2024.
However, as we are nearing the end of the year, a second film hasn't yet been commissioned and the cast all have busy schedules coming up, we would think a 2025 release date is more likely. We'll keep this page updated as soon as we have any more concrete information.
Enola Holmes cast - who would be back for the third film?
If Enola Holmes were to get a third film outing on Netflix, we would certainly expect Millie Bobby Brown to return. Before the second film was greenlit she previously said that "as soon as I went on set and I played [Enola], I fell in love with her, and she became part of my heart".
She then confirmed that the first film was her "favourite thing" she's "ever done", saying that "to do it all over again would be a dream". And if that remains the case, we'd certainly expect her to be up for more.
We'd also expect Henry Cavill to be back as Sherlock, Louis Partridge to return as Tewkesbury and Helena Bonham Carter as the Holmes matriarch Eudoria.
Another character who almost certainly would be back is Dr John Watson, who first appeared in the Enola Holmes 2 credits scene. It certainly seemed like that was setting him up for more in this franchise, but for now we'll have to wait and see.
There could also be more for Sharon Duncan-Brewster's Ms Mira Troy, AKA Moriarty, after she promised to be back for her revenge.
While we don't yet have a confirmed cast list, here are the cast members we would expect to return for a third Enola Holmes film:
- Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes
- Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes
- Louis Partridge as Viscount Tewkesbury
- Helena Bonham Carter as Eudoria Holmes
- Adeel Akhtar as Lestrade
- Susan Wokoma as Edith
- Himesh Patel as Dr John Watson
- Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Moriarty
