Will There Be A Sequel To ‘Enola Holmes’?
We told you last week that Enola Holmes was well worth a watch and we’re not the only ones obsessed with it; the movie has become a huge hit on Netflix and has received critical acclaim.
Based on the YA series of the same name by Nancy Springer and directed by Fleabag director Harry Bradbeer, Enola Holmes follows the adventures of Sherlock’s younger sister, played by Millie Bobby Brown in her first major starring role after Stranger Things.
We were left wanting more adventures with Enola at the end of the moving, which got is wondering if there would be an Enola Holmes sequel. We put our detective hats on and did some investigating of our own…
The Movie Did Set Up A Sequel
*Major Spoilers ahead for Enola Holmes*
Okay, so although Enola did figure out who was trying to kill the Marquess and she managed to (briefly) reunite with her missing mother, the end of the movie did set up a lot for another movie.
There is a lot more to explore with Enola’s mother and her involvement in the Suffragette movement. And the movie also set up a budding romance between Enola and Tewkesbury.
We. Need. More.
The Movie Is Based On A Book Series
The Enola Holmes movie is based off the first book in the The Enola Holmes Mysteries series. The first book is called The Case of the Missing Marquess, which was obviously the plot of he first movie.
There are are five more books in the series. The second book in the series is The Case of the Left-Handed Lady. It sees Enola trying to find Lady Cecily Alistair, who disappeared from her bedroom, while dodging Sherlock Holmes and Mycroft Holmes.
Millie Bobby Brown Wants An Enola Holmes Sequel
Millie Bobby Brown, who produced as well as starred in Enola Holmes, is all for a sequel.
She told Entertainment Weekly that she is “optimistic about the future” and “so looking forward to [hopefully] getting back to work.” Brown also said that playing Enola “has been my favorite thing that I’ve ever done in my life. So to do it all over again would be a dream.”
While Netflix has yet to announce a second film, given the rave reviews and five more books to potentially adapt – we can hopefully count on seeing more of Enola’s scrappy detective work in an Enola Holmes sequel.
