Enola Holmes was a surprise hit when it dropped on Netflix in 2020, with the story of Sherlock Holmes' inquisitive sister resonating with viewers in a big way. It helped, of course, that the title character was played by Stranger Things breakout star Millie Bobby Brown, while Man of Steel star Henry Cavill made for a great Sherlock.
The sequel is coming to the streaming service on November 4, and we now have a first look thanks to some exciting stills for the movie (titled simply Enola Holmes 2).
Now a detective-for-hire like her infamous brother, Enola Holmes takes on her first official case to find a missing girl, as the sparks of a dangerous conspiracy ignite a mystery that requires the help of friends - and Sherlock himself - to unravel.
Fresh off the triumph of solving her first case, Enola Holmes (Brown) follows in the footsteps of her famous brother, Sherlock (Cavill), and opens her own agency - only to find that life as a female detective-for-hire isn’t as easy as it seems. Resigned to accepting the cold realities of adulthood, she is about to close shop when a penniless matchstick girl offers Enola her first official job: to find her missing sister.
However, this case proves to be far more puzzling than expected, as Enola is thrown into a dangerous new world - from London’s sinister factories and colorful music halls, to the highest echelons of society and 221B Baker Street itself. As the sparks of a deadly conspiracy ignite, Enola must call upon the help of friends - and Sherlock himself - to unravel her mystery.
The game, it seems, has found its feet again!
Directed by Harry Bradbeer, with a screenplay by Jack Thorne and story by Harry Bradbeer & Jack Thorne, Enola Holmes 2 also stars David Thewlis, Louis Partridge, Susan Wokoma, Adeel Akhtar, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, and Helena Bonham Carter.
