Enola Holmes 2: Netflix reveals release date, first look at Millie Bobby Brown-led mystery sequel

Netflix has revealed the release date and first images of Enola Holmes 2. Starring Millie Bobby Brown, the mystery sequel is set to debut on the streaming platform on November 4. Fresh out of her first mystery in Enola Holmes (2020), the teenage detective returns to tackle her first official case. Enola Holmes 2 also brings back Henry Cavill as his brother and veteran detective Sherlock Holmes, and Helena Bonham-Carter as matriarch Eudoria. Harry Bradbeer returns to direct Enola Holmes 2.

According to Netflix, Enola Holmes 2 kicks off with titular Enola (Brown) opening her own detective agency, only to find that life as a female detective for hire isn’t as easy as it seems. Forced to deal with the struggles of adulthood, she meets a penniless match girl, who offers Enola her first official job. The task of finding her missing sister becomes confusing over time as Enola is thrown into the depths – from grim London factories, music halls and the highest echelons of society.

The first images from Netflix show Cavill returning to 221B Baker Street, as he assists Enola with the missing person’s case. Louise Partridge also returns as Viscount Tewkesbury, the runaway heir to the late Marquess of Basilwether. Carter’s (Harry Potter franchise) Eudoria also appears to be in on the deal, as we see the duo hiding inside a transport wagon. Although she’s established herself as an excellent detective, London police don’t seem used to the idea, as one of the images shows Enola being chased by a couple of angry officers.

Susan Wokoma reprises her role as Edith, the historic British martial artist who taught Eudoria the art of jujutsu. New to the cast of Enola Holmes 2 would be David Thewlis (I’m Thinking of Ending Things) and Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Dune), whose roles are being kept in obscurity.

While Enola Holmes sounds like a “what if?” A concept piece, it’s actually based on author Nancy Springer’s bestselling eponymous book series for young adults. It was later adapted into a screenplay by Jack Thorne, known for writing HBO’s His Dark Materials, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Enola Holmes 2 releases November 4, exclusively on Netflix worldwide.
