Bobby Brown who plays the lead Enola and also produces the movie shared her plans for the upcoming series in an interview with ScreenRant. She said: “I would love to be a part of another one. I would love to see her 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 stories are based on the books of the same name by Nancy Springer, there’s seven in total, meaning the show has potential for many more seasons.

When will it be released?

Enola Holmes 3 has not started filming yet, so there are little clues as to when the movie could be released. The second film took two years to be released after the first, so there is a possibility that fans can expect to see it in 2024.

However, given how busy Bobby Brown and Cavill will be with their upcoming filming commitments, it could be sometime before a third movie is released.

Who will star in Enola Holmes 3?

The cast of Enola Holmes cannot be complete without Bobby Brown who stars as the lead and also has a role as producer. Speaking about her experience playing Enola to Entertainment Weekly, the actress said it was the “favourite thing” she’s “ever done”.

She added: “I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, I’ll just do one movie, like, obviously…’ and then as soon as I went on set and I played Enola, I fell in love with her, and she became part of my heart. Ultimately, this has been my favourite thing that I’ve ever done in my life. So to do it all over again would be a dream.”

We can also expect Cavill to return as Sherlock, Louis Partridge as Tewkesbury and Helena Bonham Carter as Enola’s mother Eudoria. Dr John Watson is also predicted to be included in the third film, with the second one setting him up to be a feature of the franchise.

Here are the cast members we expect to see in Enola Holmes 3:

What can we expect from Enola Holmes 3?

The previous two films have been based on books from Nancy Springer, so it’s expected that the third instalment will be no different. There is speculation it will be based on “The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets”. In this novel, Dr Watson is kidnapped, with Sherlock and Enola trying to uncover the story of what happened to their missing friend.
