There’s going to be a sequel to Enola Holmes, and this really shouldn’t be a surprise: the movie was a huge streaming hit, and there’s multiple volumes of source material to draw on. The key was always going to be Millie Bobby Brown, and she used Instagram to confirm she’s back. The writer of the first movie, Jack Thorne, is also returning, as is director Harry Bradbeer.
Interestingly, Henry Cavill will be back as Sherlock. We say interesting, because his portrayal as the great detective landed the movie in a legal tangle. To keep it short, there’s an estate which owns the right to the later Sherlock Holmes IP, but not the early ones which are public domian, and they pop up every time someone uses Sherlock to try and get their claws in. As Henry Cavill played Sherlock as more of a nice, human figure, the estate are claiming that’s the Sherlock from the later books when he chilled out a bit. Anyway, that was settled and he’s back.
