“There’s more of the story to be told. The story isn’t over yet,” Brown told Deadline when asked about the sequel to the beloved Netflix movie. Enola Holmes was one of the biggest hits on Netflix in 2020. It depicts the adventures of Enola Holmes, the teen sister of the classic mystery solver Sherlock Holmes. Millie Bobby Brown stars as the titular character who charmed the audience with her rebellious determination and her wit that’s at par with her brothers- Sherlock and Mycroft. And now, she is coming back!
Who Is Returning?
Esteemed actor, Helena Bonham Carter who played Mommy Holmes, Eudoria Holmes, is confirmed for the sequel. Though Carter made little appearance in the first part, her powerful aura made an impact. After all, it’s THE Helena Carter. Her famous quirky acting style fit perfectly with the eccentric Holmes family. We’ll again see Millie as the notoriously clever lead, with Henry Cavill reprising his role as her brother Sherlock Holmes. Louis Partridge will return as Tewksbury, as announced earlier.
Others to join the cast are David Thewlis, Susan Wokoma, Adeel Akhtar, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Hannah Dodd, Abbie Hern, Gabriel Tierney, and Serrana Su-Ling Bliss.
The Great Minds Behind It
Enola Holmes is run by a talented creative team. Harry Bradbeer, from Fleabag and Killing Eve, will again take the director’s chair and Jack Thorne, from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, will take his position as the writer. Legendary and Netflix will be co-producing the film. Adapted from Nancy Springer’s book series of the same name, Enola Holmes was one of the most-watched titles. With this level of admiration and a whole series of adventures left to explore, we knew it would return.
According to Millie Bobby Brown
“She isn’t grown up, there’s no conclusion. I think she’ll forever be someone who is always evolving, but there’s definitely more to be shown on screen. Harry and I loved working together, so this has to happen.”
