Netflix has confirmed Enola Holmes 2, the adorable little sister of Sherlock Holmes. Netflix picked up the first movie, which was originally meant for theatrical release. It went on to become one of Netflix’s top 10 most-watched movies.
Enola Holmes received a staggering 76 million views within its first month on the platform. It’s not surprising that we’re getting a sequel to it! The details are not available as the Enola Holmes 2 has just been confirmed. However, there are six books to inspire and an eager audience for the sequel.
Enola Holmes 2, with Jack Thorne as the writer and Harry Bradbeer as the director, will return to Nancy Springer’s book series. While we expect to see more familiar faces return on-screen soon, Netflix has been sparing with details.
There are still a few things we don’t know, but here’s what we know so far about Enola Holmes 2.
Enola Holmes 2 release date speculation
Netflix stated that Enola Holmes 2 was ordered by it on May 13th on its social media accounts, but no release date has been announced.
Enola Holmes premiered on Netflix in September 2020. However, it seems futile to hope for the sequel to drop in that month. We should also mention that Millie Bobby Brown is returning to Stranger Things season 4 as Eleven. We can’t imagine that the actress was simultaneously filming two different series and a movie.
We’re assuming that the new season of Stranger Things will be released next year. Perhaps Enola Holmes 2 may follow in 2022.
Enola Holmes 2 cast
Enola Holmes 2 is not completely unknown to us. Tweet from Netflix announcing the acquisition The return of Millie Bobby Brown is Enola Holmes And Sherlock Holmes: Henry Cavill.
The film didn’t explore the relationship between the siblings. Enola, the title, forging her course, while Sherlock and Mycroft acted more as hindrances.
Netflix was involved in a lawsuit over Enola Holmes’s release. According to Arthur Conan Doyle’s estate, Holmes was portrayed as being too warm and emotional, and when combined with the respect for women, it was allegedly copyright infringement. (via The Guardian).
It was dismissed without prejudice. The case may have been settled behind closed door doors. However, it will be fascinating to see how Cavill returns to the role of the famous detective.
Enola has completed her first mystery. However, Enola still has plenty of time for her family ties to be reexamined. At this point, we don’t know whether Sam Claflin will return to Mycroft Holmes or if Helena Bonham Carter is going to be playing Eudoria Holmes.
If Enola’s next outing takes place in a different location than where she was left on the streets of London, Mycroft, Eudora, and Adeel Akhtar will almost certainly return to their roles as Inspector Lestrade. But, this is speculation and wishful thinking until confirmation comes through.
Story and plot of Enola Holmes 2,
The original Enola Holmes movie was inspired by The Case of the Missing Marquess. The film changed some details, such as Enola’s age, and Lord Tewksbury’s disappearance, as most adaptations do.
Enola Holmes 2 could be taken from any of the books but it will most likely be The Case of the Left-Handed Lady. It is about Enola’s search for Lady Cecily Alistair who vanished from her bedroom. Enola disguised as Enola talks to Lady Cecily’s relatives and they believe she has fled with the son of a tradesman. Enola discovers some unusual paintings that make her suspicious about their story.
