Netflix Reveals Synopsis for Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill’s Next Investigation

Netflix has shared the official synopsis of the film Enola Holmes 2 with actress Millie Bobby Brown in the title role and Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes.

And Enola Holmes was initially supposed to make a career in the cinema, the global health crisis decided otherwise and the little sister of Sherlock Holmes finally conducted her first investigation on Netflix after the streaming giant haggled over the distribution rights with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. A boon for the platform and its franchise ambitions – the film being adapted from a six-volume literary series – and probably for the film, which has surely gained in visibility. Enola Holmes was well received on the platform and so the plans for a sequel seemed obvious, even if Netflix dragged out its officialization for almost a year.

Netflix has not missed its target audience

Enola Holmes 2 ended up being announced last May, still starring Millie Bobby Brown as the witty and energetic little sister of Sherlock Holmes who will once again be played by Henry Cavill. Last January, it was announced that the filming of this second part was finished, while Netflix recently unveiled a trailer for its 2022 line-up including the first images of the sequel. At the same time, the platform unveiled its official synopsis:

Now a detective for her infamous brother, Enola Holmes embarks on her first official investigation to find a missing young girl, as the sparks of a dangerous conspiracy ignite a mystery that requires the help of friends – and Sherlock himself – to be elucidated.”

After being upstaged by his little sister, the best detective in the world (behind Batman) could therefore have a more important place in the plot which seems to follow that of the literary saga of writer Nancy Springer by adapting the second book, The Lady Alistair Affair, in which it is also a question of finding a missing young girl.

In addition to the return of Helena Bonham Carter as Eudonia Holmes and Louis Partridge as Lord Tewkesbury, the cast will also include two newcomers: David Thewlis (Harry Potter, Wonder Woman) and Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Rogue One : A Star Wars Story, Dune). For their part, Jack Thorne will resume his place as screenwriter, while director Harry Bradbeer will return behind the camera.
