Sherlock Holmes’ sister, Enola Holmes, will soon be returning to the big screen in Enola Holmes 2. The film will see Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill reprise their roles from the first film as the detective siblings.
The film was first announced in May this year and now has a Netflix listing. It will likely be released sometime this coming Winter.
The first film, which was produced by Brown, as well as her performing in it, was the most viewed film on Netflix in the United States over the first five days of its being available on the streaming platform, with 77 million views.
The Enola Holmes films are based on the books by Nancy Springer of the same name and depict Sherlock’s younger sibling as she follows in her brother’s footsteps in investigative capers.
In November 2012, Henry Cavill announced that he had finished his last day of filming. Then, in January, Netflix revealed that the film’s principal photography had been completed.
Helena Bonham Carter joins Brown and Cavill and once again takes up her role as the Holmes siblings’ mother, Eudoria Holmes. The sequel film will also see Louis Partridge, Adeel Akhtar and Susie Wokoma reprise their roles as Tewkesbury, Lestrade and Edith, respectively.
Sharon Duncan-Brewster, known for her performance as Liet-Kynes in Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune, will join the cast alongside David Thewlis. Harry Bradbeer will take on directing duty, having previously worked on the TV shows Fleabag and Killing Eve.
Bradbeer commented on the potential of a sequel in 2020, saying, “I know quite a bit, which I can’t divulge. But I’m excited about the other things that she’s going to do. She’s such an extraordinary character that we’re going to dig out some more secrets about her. If we do go again, there’s a lot of issues left in this dysfunctional family. Not only in the country, which is dysfunctional, but the family as well.”
