Millie Bobby Brown will return in Enola Holmes 2Netflix

The younger sister of the famous fictional detective looks to be making her first two films into a trilogy, as plans for Enola Holmes 3 officially materialize.

While leading star Millie Bobby Brown is still in the process of wrapping up Stranger Things 5, the question of whether there will be a third Enola Holmes film has stayed with fans.

Enola Holmes follows a young girl searching for her missing mother, with the intrepid teen using her sleuthing skills to outsmart big brother Sherlock and help a runaway lord. The sequel was just as much of a success, with our review reading: “If you liked the first Enola Holmes, you’re most likely going to get a kick out of this one, as for everything that the first film did better, this film did other things better in other ways.”

While Enola Holmes 2 made a good impression and left behind plenty of unanswered questions, will there be an Enola Holmes 3? Here’s everything we know so far.

Will there be an Enola Holmes 3?

According to Netflix, Enola Holmes 3 is officially in development.

Speaking to Collider, Head of Netflix Film Scott Stuber said: “You know, she’s such a great homegrown star for us. I mean, obviously, Stranger Things is huge for us in that, and watching her grow as an actress. We have a film called Damsel with her in the spring, which I’m really excited about, [from] Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Then, getting that character right.

“The Holmes IP is weirdly elastic. Obviously, Warner Bros. did an incredible job with Downey and Jude Law, so this idea that we can extend that IP with her is exciting. So, we’re working once again on a screenplay to try to get that. But yes, aspiration. I’d like to do another one.”

Is there an Enola Holmes 3 release date?

Currently, there is no confirmed release date for Enola Holmes 3.

The first film in the series was released in September 2020, with the sequel following up in October 2022. This means that Enola Holmes 3 could also likely receive a Fall release window.

That’s the story of growing up. I’ve gone through that. It resonates with me in so many ways,” Millie Bobby Brown told Vogue about her character.

Harry Bradbeer has previously directed both of the Enola Holmes movies, with Bobby Brown also acting as a producer.
