Enola Holmes hit Netflix September 2020. The Netflix original showcased Enola, the sister of famous detective Sherlock Holmes. “While searching for her missing mother, intrepid teen Enola Holmes uses her sleuthing skills to outsmart big brother Sherlock and help a runaway lord.” I found myself adoring the movie more than I thought I would. The banter between Enola and her brothers (played by Henry Cavill and Sam Claflin) mixed in with the innocence of Enola realizing the world outside of her home, made for a wonderful coming of age mystery. While it was announced there will be a sequel to the film, I thought I’d put together a list of TV shows and other movies to stream while Enola Holmes 2 is in production.
