When it comes to Sherlock Holmes spin-offs, Netflix giveth and Netflix taketh away.
While The Irregulars has been cancelled after just one season, there’s better news for fans of recent hit film, Enola Holmes, which tells the story of the famous sleuth’s headstrong teenage sister solving crimes in 20th century London.
Netflix has announced that the movie is set for a sequel, with original cast members Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill reprising their popular roles.
The idea for the first movie is based on a series of six novels, ‘The Enola Holmes Mysteries’ by Nancy Springer, so perhaps its no surprise that Enola Holmes 2 is in the works. There are certainly many stories left to tell from the source material. Millie Bobby Brown plays our heroine Enola, while Cavill plays her brother Sherlock.
Deadline quotes Brown as saying she “can’t wait” to start work on the sequel. “I can’t wait to collaborate again with my Enola Holmes family! Enola holds a special place in my heart – she’s strong, fearless, intelligent and brave. I look forward to fans seeing how her journey continues!”
Netflix has also confirmed that writer Jack Thorne and director Harry Bradbeer (who also directed Fleabag), will return for the sequel, alongside many of the behind the scenes talent who worked on the original.
