Enola Holmes 2 is heading to Netflix soon to continue the latest take on the beloved Sherlock Holmes universe. In this adaptation, we focus on Sherlock's sister Enola, played by Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown.

She stars alongside The Witcher's Henry Cavill, taking on the iconic role of Sherlock Holmes, while Peaky Blinders star Sam Claflin plays eldest Holmes sibling Mycroft, so the show gives plenty of attention to all of the Holmes family. 

The Enola Holmes films are based on the young adult fiction series (opens in new tab) of the same name by Nancy Springer, following Sherlock Holmes' teenage sister.

Speaking about reprising the role of Enola for another film, Millie said: "I can't wait to collaborate again with my Enola Holmes family! Enola holds a special place in my heart – she's strong, fearless, intelligent and brave. I look forward to fans seeing how her journey continues!"

Here's everything we know so far...
