Netflix pumps the break on Enola Holmes 2. Millie Bobby Brown will, of course, return as Enola Holmes, but not in February. Even before Netflix confirmed a sequel, fans were already convinced that the story wasn’t over for the teenage sleuth.
It was announced back in May 2021 that Stranger Things actress and Henry Cavill would be back as Enola Holmes and Sherlock Holmes, respectively, as well as writer Jack Thorne and director Harry Bradbeer. Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, and Ali Mendes are among the producers. Producer credits will also go to Ms. Bobby Brown and her sister Paige.

Enola Holmes was the second most-watched film on the platform when it was released on September 23, 2020. The film, directed by Harry Bradbeer and adapted from the Nancy Springer book series, follows Enola, the younger sister of Mycroft (Sam Clafin) and Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill).
When is Enola Holmes 2 coming out?
As of now, we don’t have a definite release date for Enola Holmes 2. This makes it clear that the movie is not slated to release in February, at least.
The new season of Stranger Things is slated for release in mid-2022, so, as per Netflix Life, we can anticipate Enola Holmes 2 to be released later in the same year — potentially in September like the first film, given that the production was completed on January 7, 2022 which was officially announced by Netflix on Twitter.

For Netflix movies and series, the post-production process usually takes six to eight months. However, depending on whether CGI or other special effects are used, the program or film might be in post-production for up to 12 months. In addition, if there are delays, post-production may take longer.
Enola Holmes 2 Plot
It is unknown yet what the plotline for the film will be, but the narrative may be based on a number of stories. If the film series follows its chronological order, the young detective will most likely be seen investigating the disappearance of Lady Cecily Alistair in The Case of the Left-Handed Lady.
Who Among The Cast Members Will Return For Enola Holmes 2?
Besides Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill has been confirmed to return as Sherlock Holmes. In an Instagram video, Cavill also revealed that he had finished filming all of his scenes for the upcoming film.

Sam Claflin is expected to reprise his role as Mycroft, one of the Sherlock siblings, and Helena Bonham Carter will return as Eudora Holmes, the matriarch of the Holmes family.
In addition, Louis Partridge will reprise the role of Tewkesbury, Enola’s love interest. At the end of the first film, he and Enola parted ways, although the two could easily reunite if the director and writers wanted to.
Will There be Enola Holmes 3?
Netflix has not confirmed Enola Holmes 3. However, if the second installment follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, the saga can continue to grow in numbers. Considering Springer has written six novels, Enola Holmes could easily adapt the entire literary saga for Netflix.
For those who are interested in reading the source material before diving into Netflix’s film adaptations, the books should be read in the following order: The Case of the Missing Marquess, The Case of the Left-Handed Lady, The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets, The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan, The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline, The Case of the Gypsy Goodbye.
