Will there be an Enola Holmes 3? Here’s what we know about another sequel:

Enola Holmes 3

Netflix original Enola Holmes first hit our screens in 2020. In its first five days, the mystery drama became the streaming platform’s most watched film! Based on a series of young adult novels written by Nancy Springer (her take on Conan Doyle’s iconic books), the movie follows the adventures of the bright and witty younger sister of Sherlock Holmes.

After receiving a majority of high praise and positive reviews, the movie was renewed for a sequel. Millie Bobby Brown reprised her role as the lively Enola and had us all glued to screens once again with her performance in Enola Holmes 2.

After two blockbuster releases, will there be an Enola Holmes 3? Read on to find out!


What is Enola Holmes 2 about?

The sequel continues following the adventures of Enola, with Sherlock and Lord Tewkesbury supporting her. This time, Enola takes on her first case as an official detective for Bessie Chapman, whose older sister Sarah is missing. Sarah used to work at a matchstick factory as well as a dancer at a music hall. As Enola investigates she suspects the matchstick factory since the girls working there have been dying of Typhus.

Will there be a third Enola Holmes movie?

Enola Holmes 2 ends with the introduction of two immensely important and iconic characters from Doyle’s franchise — Moriarty and John Watson. The twist is that in this version of the story, Moriarty is a black woman. In fact, she even assures both the Holmes that they will meet yet again.

These initial encounters in the film are set up in a way that promises future interaction. Coupled with Enola finally setting up her detective agency, it is highly likely that there will be an Enola Holmes 3. While there have been no official statements from Netflix at the time of writing this, the positive reviews suggest a renewal announcement will be made soon.


What could Enola Holmes 3 be about?

With Moriarty and John Watson inducted into the series, Enola Holmes has brought together all the classic A.C. Doyle characters. It’s safe to say that they will play a crucial role, should there be a third instalment. As in the first two instalments, the third will also probably be loosely based on one of Nancy Springer’s novels.

With the decision to have Moriarty be played by the wonderful Sharon Duncan-Brewster, the franchise is opening up a number of possibilities to make a statement on the racial dynamics in Victorian England. Fingers crossed, the future movies do it justice!

Although, we hope that the long-admired Sherlock-Moriarty relationship doesn’t overshadow Enola herself. After all, this is her series and the quirky, young girl deserves to keep her spotlight.


When could Enola Holmes 3 be released?

Enola Holmes 2 premiered two years after the first movie. Considering Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill are both actors with busy schedules, it’s safe to assume that the third instalment will be released sometime in 2024.

Of course, this is all speculation as there has been no official news regarding a third movie. In an interview with ScreenRant, Millie Bobby Brown herself admitted looking forward to another film with more challenging cases for Enola. So do we, Millie. So do we.

  1. Thoroughly enjoyed both films. Can’t see why they don’t continue this as a series. It would be a big time win for Netflix if they did.

  2. I loved both movies so much!!! I found that the actors played there role super well and that both movies are so different but really good. One is about who Enola is and the second is about her as a detective and how she tries to live up to the Holmes name. I truly hope that there will be a 3rd movie so we can see more of theese new characters and more of the old ones. It’s all super exciting and I have to say that the Enola Holmes franchaise is my favourites movies of all time.

  3. Absolutely adored this charming series. The writing is clever and the actors perfect representations of the charactors. I found both movies a sheer delight!!! I will look forward to hearing news of additional movies. The game remains afoot!

  4. Please. Please. Please keep this series going! It’s funny, intriguing, excellent acting & our granddaughter can come into the room & we don’t have to pause it because the content is not rough!

  5. I am a fan of Ebola Holmes and both movies so far. I hope there will be a 3 and possibly many more!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
