The sequel is being developed and produced by Legendary in partnership with Netflix after Netflix acquired the worldwide rights, ex-China, to the first film from Legendary last year.

“I can’t wait to collaborate again with my ‘Enola Holmes’ family,” Brown said, announcing the franchise’s new installment. “Enola holds a special place in my heart — she’s strong, fearless, intelligent, and brave. I look forward to fans seeing how her journey continues!”
Legendary’s Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, and Ali Mendes; Millie Bobby Brown and Paige Brown through their PCMA Productions shingle, are producing with Legendary’s Joshua Grode; Michael Dreyer; Harry Bradbeer; and Jack Thorne as Executive Producers.

The film is based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries, which comprises six books in total. The first and fifth books in the series were nominated for Edgar Awards in 2007 and 2010.
‘Enola Holmes’ was Released globally on Netflix last year, and according to the streamer, an estimated 76m households chose Enola Holmes in the first 28 days.
