Helena Bonham Carter will rejoin Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill for a new "Enola Holmes" mystery from Legendary and Netflix.
Netflix's upcoming Enola Holmes 2 confirms the returns of Helena Bonham Carter, Susan Wokoma, and Adeel Akhtar while adding several newcomers to the cast. Last year, the streamer released Enola Holmes, the first movie based on author Nancy Springer's young adult series. The movie starred Millie Bobby Brown as Enola, the brilliant younger sister of Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft Holmes (Sam Claflin). Enola Holmes quickly became a hit for Netflix, ranking among the biggest original movies of the year.
Director Harry Bradbeer and writer Jack Thorne are also back in their respective positions. Legendary is producing the feature in partnership with Netflix. Legendary's Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, and Ali Mendes will produce alongside Millie Bobby Brown and Paige Brown through their PCMA Productions banner. Legendary's Joshua Grode is executive producing alongside Michael Dreyer, Harry Bradbeer, and Jack Thorne.
Enola Holmes was a massive hit upon being released in 2020, telling the story of young Enola, the rebellious and quick-witted sibling of famous detective Sherlock Holmes, whom Cavill plays. Audiences and critics widely praised the film for its clever storytelling, and it was reported that 76 million users tuned into the movie during its first 28 days on the streamer.
