Now, where to begin? Enola Holmes has released the first look at its sequel coming soon to Netflix. If you missed Millie Bobby Brown as Enola and her big brother Sherlock, played by Henry Cavill, the wait is finally over. While we don’t have much in the way of plot, trailers, or a premiere date, a sneak preview is better than nothing!
As a part of TUDUM, Netflix’s global fan event sprawling over three hours today, the streamer teased the upcoming spy sequel with a GIF tweeted to Netflix’s official Twitter account featuring Enola and The Viscount Tewkesbury, Marquess of Basilwether, aka Tewks, played by Louis Partridge.
Both Brown and Cavill will reprise their roles as the Holmes siblings. The news was announced back in May, with Harry Bradbeer set to return as director and writer Jack Thorne back penning the script. Both will also executive produce, alongside Legendary Entertainment’s Joshua Grode and Michael Dreyer. At the moment, other Enola Holmes cast members like Helena Bonham Carter, Sam Claflin, and Louis Partridge have not been announced to be returning, but stay tuned for more updates.
The series is based on Nancy Springer’s women-led Sherlock Holmes book series, which is comprised of six novels in total. Could that mean we’ll be waiting for another four Enola Holmes sequels after this one lands on Netflix? Director Bradbeer says that just might be the case.
“That would be amazing,” Bradbeer told Decider last year. “Someone’s going to have the energy for it! It’d be wonderful to get five more movies out of this scene. I do think they’re extraordinary stories to tell, and what a period. As you go forward, things like that three-wheeled car—which was a lovely thing we discovered — to find our characters playing on some of the new contraptions, at some point in the early 20th century. Of course, we get airplanes and the Wright brothers. Who knows what other challenges are going to come out of this really restless, productive period.”
Stay tuned for the premiere date, trailer, and more to come on Enola Holmes 2.
