‘Enola Holmes 2’ First Look: Millie Bobby Brown And Henry Cavill Are Back On The Case In Netflix’s Sequel

There have been numerous Sherlock Holmes adaptations over the years, but the best and most charming of all wasn’t about the super-sleuth at all. Rather, it was about his kid sister, Enola Holmes. Millie Bobby Brown won the hearts of millions were her role as the equally brilliant younger sister to Sherlock, and now her sleuthing adventures are continuing with our first official look at Enola Holmes 2!

As seen in these new photos released by Netflix, Millie Bobby Brown is back as Enola Holmes, joined by the returning Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes and Helena Bonham Carter as their mother, Eudoria Holmes. And it looks like Enola hasn’t missed a beat, as she’s seen deciphering clues alongside Sherlock and Tewkesbury, with Alan Partridge reprising the latter role.

Also returning for the sequel are Adeel Akhtar as Lestrade and Susie Wokoma as Edith. David Thewlis has joined the cast in an unknown role, as well.

Details on the plot had been kept shrouded in mystery, but Netflix now has an official synopsis:

Fresh off the triumph of solving her first case, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) follows in the footsteps of her famous brother, Sherlock (Henry Cavill), and opens her own agency — only to find that life as a female detective-for-hire isn’t as easy as it seems. Resigned to accepting the cold realities of adulthood, she is about to close shop when a penniless matchstick girl offers Enola her first official job: to find her missing sister. But this case proves to be far more puzzling than expected, as Enola is thrown into a dangerous new world — from London’s sinister factories and colorful music halls, to the highest echelons of society and 221B Baker Street itself. As the sparks of a deadly conspiracy ignite, Enola must call upon the help of friends — and Sherlock himself — to unravel her mystery. The game, it seems, has found its feet again!

Once again penned by Jack Thorne and directed by Harry Bradbeer, Enola Holmes 2 hits Netflix on November 4th.
