Netflix's upcoming sequel Enola Holmes 2 now has an official release date. The follow-up to their 2020 hit starring Millie Bobby Brown as the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill) has been hotly anticipated for some time. The project, which is being helmed by returning director Harry Bradbeer, sees both stars reprising their roles along with other returning cast members including Helena Bonham Carter as their mother Eudoria Holmes, Louis Partridge as Enola's love interest Viscount Tewkesbury, and Susie Wokoma as Edith, a woman whose teahouse is a front for a secret martial arts academy. The new film will also star Harry Potter alum David Thewlis and Dune: Part One's Sharon Duncan-Brewster.
Enola Holmes 2 will follow Enola after she opens her own private detective agency and is asked to help a young girl who works at a match factory find her sister. Beyond that, not much is known about the contents of the film, as so far it doesn't seem to be based on any of the books in the Enola Holmes series by Nancy Springer, the young adult novels on which the franchise is based. For a long time, plot details and release information have been kept in the dark. However, Netflix has been starting to ramp up their promotional engine for the film, releasing an Enola Holmes 2 teaser poster before sharing three first-look images today. As Netflix doesn't advertise their films very far in advance, this led many to speculate the release date was drawing near.
The speculations about the promotional campaign have proven to be correct, as, per Netflix, Enola Holmes 2 now has an official release date. The sequel will be hitting the streaming platform on November 4, 2022. This is just over a month past the two-year anniversary of the original film, which debuted on September 23, 2020.
This release date, in addition to being consistent with the Fall release pattern established by the first film, will fill in the somewhat anemic slate of blockbusters between the end of Summer and the 2022 holiday season. -Screen Rant
