Netflix's 2020 film Enola Holmes, based on the first book in the series of the same name by Nancy Springer, managed an impressive RT score of 91% and managed to be a viewership success for the streaming service. It seems as no surprise than that Netflix has confirmed a sequel is in development with the creative forces driving the continuation. With six books in total, it's a strong bet the sequel will be based on the second book in the series.
The film (and the books) tell the story of Sherlock Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her famous siblings. In the first film, Millie Bobby Brown played Enola and Henry Cavill took on the role of a kinder, more friendly version of Sherlock Holmes (which actually led to a lawsuit by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's estate who found it violated the character's nature). Both Brown and Cavill will return in-front of the camera as their respective characters while director Harry Bradbeer and screenwriter Jack Thorne are returning in their respective roles for the sequel. Brown had this to say upon the announcement of the sequel:
“I can’t wait to collaborate again with my Enola Holmes family! Enola holds a special place in my heart — she’s strong, fearless, intelligent and brave. I look forward to fans seeing how her journey continues!”
Hopefully, the sequel will be just as fun and narratively propelling as the first film! Stay tuned!
