Enola Holmes is gearing up for a new adventure, and bringing her famous older brother alongside her.
Netflix finally declared on Thursday that they’re making a sequel of Enola Holmes with Millie Bobby Brown returning as the titular character, and Henry Cavill back as Sherlock Holmes.
In the first film, Brown played the youngest member from the Holmes family, who experienced childhood in a secluded countryside manor with their eccentric mother Eudoria (Helena Bonham Carter) utilizing unconventional education methods that’d prove handy for when she left Enola to fight for herself after her 16th birthday celebration.
With Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes previously having positively influenced London society, they endeavor to form Enola into somebody “proper,” yet she just can’t resist the urge to be an ingenious super-sleuth who defies the rigid expectations Mycroft (Sam Claflin) has for her and rather tackles a conspiracy stemming from young Marquess gone missing (who is played by breakout star Louis Patridge).
Since the filmmakers are free of their past copyright dispute with the Conan Doyle estate, who argued the family of the Sherlock Holmes maker held a copyright for any depiction of the detective, chief Harry Bradbeer and essayist Jack Thorne are getting back to make Enola Holmes 2, which will be founded on another story from writer Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes book series.
Brown kept it short and basic in simple of the news, posting an Instagram inscription that says “the sequel is afoot.” She recently told EW, preceding the continuation being greenlit, “I love that I can continually play her, and with the Enola book series… I really am optimistic about the future. I’m so looking forward to [hopefully] getting back to work.”
No news yet on when the film will show up on Netflix.
