Millie Bobby Brown dazzles in “Enola Holmes 2,” which starts streaming on Netflix on Nov. 4, but the movie leaves fans with one major question: will there be an “Enola Holmes 3”? Netflix has yet to confirm if the film series will turn into a trilogy, but the odds seem pretty good.
The Enola Holmes movies are based on The Enola Holmes Mysteries, a series of seven books written by Nancy Springer. The original six books were published between 2007 and 2010, with a seventh book released in 2021. The first Enola Holmes movie, which debuted in 2020, and the new one adapt parts of the first two books in the series, “The Case of the Missing Marquess” and “The Case of the Left-Handed Lady.” “The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets” is the third book in the series. That means there’s lots of material to adapt for future movies, and Brown said she’s definitely interested in doing more.
In an interview with ScreenRant, published Nov. 3, she said, “I would love to be a part of another one.” Brown explained, “I would love to see [Enola] do more cases, be put under pressure, be put in crazy situations, make her feel vulnerable again. I absolutely love seeing her back at work.”
The most mysterious part of another Enola Holmes movie is whether Henry Cavill would return as Sherlock Holmes, Enola’s older brother. The actor recently announced that he’s leaving his lead role in Netflix’s “The Witcher” after season three drops sometime in 2023. Plus, he’s returning to the DC Universe as Superman, which could include another stand-alone Superman movie. It’s not clear if Cavill leaving “The Witcher” means he won’t appear in any more Netflix projects or if his slate will be too busy with Superman to appear in any more Enola Holmes films. “The Witcher” replaced Cavill with Liam Hemsworth, so if it did come to that, they might choose to recast Cavill in this film series, too.
We’re still waiting for “Enola Holmes 3” to get the official green light, but we’re optimistic it’ll happen soon.
