Read on to find out more about this exciting new Netflix Original project, who will star and when it is likely to premiere.
Enola Holmes 2 on Netflix
Enola Holmes was originally supposed to screen in theaters under the Warner Brothers banner. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Warner Brothers sold the rights of the film to Netflix. This turned out to be a good deal for the streaming channel when it premiered in September 2020, as the film did very well.
Rumors of a sequel started early this year, with Millie Bobby Brown showing strong interest. She asked people to see how they feel after the first movie. Brown explained how much she had fallen in love with Enola herself and said there is definitely more of a story to be told. In May 2021, the official announcement of Enola Holmes 2 was made by the streaming channel.
Who will be starring in the sequel?
Initially, Netflix only confirmed the two lead cast members for the sequel, namely Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill, as Enola and Sherlock. In the meantime, an announcement was made at Netflix’s TUDUM event, revealing that Louis Partridge will also return as Enola’s sidekick Tewkesbury.
Netflix finally confirmed the cast members on September 28. These include Helena Bonham Carter (Enola Holmes), David Thewlis, Susan Wokoma (Enola Holmes). Adeel Akhtar (Sweet Tooth) and Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Dune). Hannah Dodd (Harlots), Abbie Hern (The Pact), Gabriel Tierney (Endeavour) and Serrana Su-Ling Bliss will also star.
Harry Bradbeer will return as the director of Enola Holmes 2. Meanwhile, Jack Thorne will adapt the script from the Nancy Springer novels, as well as being an executive producer. Producers of Enola Holmes 2 will be Micahel Dreyer, Ali Mendes, Paige Brown, Alex Garcia, Joshua Grode and Mary Parent.
What can we expect from the sequel?
Enola Holmes ended with the Holmes family reuniting. However, Enola stated that moving forward, she needs to find her own path. Bradbeer told Decider that we must expect a lot of family tensions and that there are a lot of issues left in the dysfunctional family. Currently, it is unknown which mystery will feature in the sequel as there are many to choose from.
Where does production stand for Enola Holmes 2?
Production on Enola Holmes 2 was scheduled to start in late 2021. In fact, reportedly, filming will kick off in early October. As with the first movie, the sequel is to be set in London. However, the tweet below, sent on September 27, notes that sets were also being dressed in the High Street in Hull. While no official release date is out as yet, it looks like the movie will premiere early in 2022.
