In the new installment, Enola opens her own agency, only to find that life as a female detective-for-hire isn’t as easy as it seems. Resigned to accepting the cold realities of adulthood, she is about to close shop when a penniless matchstick girl offers Enola her first official job: to find her missing sister. The case throws Enola into a dangerous new world, and she must call upon the help of friends — and Sherlock — to unravel her mystery.
Harry Bradbeer returns to direct, with a screenplay by the first film’s writer Jack Thorne based on a story by Bradbeer and Thorne. Legendary’s Mary Parent, Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes produce along with Brown and Paige Brown through their PCMA Productions shingle. Legendary’s Joshua Grode, Michael Dreyer, Bradbeer and Thorne exec produce.

The films are based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated book series The Enola Holmes Mysteries, comprised of six books in total. The first and fifth books in the series were nominated for Edgars in 2007 and 2010, respectively. They put a dynamic female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family.
When streamers began picking up projects to put on their platforms during the pandemic Enola Holmes was one of the first big splashes, with Netflix landing worldwide rights, minus China, in the spring. An estimated 76 million households watched in the first 28 days.
