The sister of Sherlock Holmes is back again in action. This year, Netflix will come up with the sequel, Enola Holmes 2.
Enola Holmes is a mystery crime British movie released on September 23, 2020, on Netflix. Directed by Harry Bradbeer, it is based on the young adult fiction novel with the title The Enola Holmes Mysteries: The Case of the Missing Marquess by Nancy Springer.
The first movie gained a very positive review from critics and audiences, thanks to its story as well as Millie Bobby Brown’s performance in the film. It also became one of the most watched original Netflix movies, with approximately 76 million households watch it over the first four weeks of its release.
Enola Holmes revolves around the titular character who is the sister of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. Enola travels to London in the effort to find her missing mother. Little did she know, she ended up dealing with thrilling adventure alongside a runaway lord.
So with that kind of success—and considering that there is still another book to adapt into screen—when will we see Enola Holmes 2?
