Millie also took to social media to announce the sequel. Sharing a picture from the previous film she wrote, “The sequel is afoot #EnolaHolmes2.” The film was based on Nancy Springer’s Edger Award-nominated book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries, which comprises six books in total.
Writer Jack Thorne and director Harry Bradbeer will be working on Enola Holmes 2 which will continue the adventures of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her famous siblings as she runs about early 20th century London.
