New Delhi: Actress Helena Bonham Carter is all set to return for the upcoming sequel to ‘Enola Holmes’, the hit female-centric Sherlock Holmes from Legendary Entertainment and Netflix.

According to Variety, Bonham Carter will join a previously announced cast including Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill for the new installment. Bonham Carter plays Eudoria Holmes, the parent of a famous investigative family, in the series based on Nancy Springer’s beloved books. The films tell the story of Sherlock Holmes (Cavill)’s rebellious teenage sister, Enola (Brown), who is a talented super-sleuth in her own right and often outdoes her famous siblings.

Rounding out the ensemble are David Thewlis, Susan Vukoma, Adil Akhtar, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Hannah Dodd, Abby Hearn, Gabriel Tierney and Serana Su-Ling Bliss, along with Brown, Cavill and Bonham Carter.

During last week’s TODAY global fan event, Netflix announced that Louis Partridge would be reprising his role as Tuxbury.

Emmy and BAFTA-winning director Harry Bradbeer and BAFTA and Tony-winning writer Jack Thorne are also returning for the sequel.

Principal photography for the upcoming sequel is set to begin in London. The project is being bankrolled by Legendary in partnership with Netflix after Netflix acquired the worldwide rights to Legendary’s debut last year, excluding China.

Enola Homes 2 is produced by Legendary’s Marie Parent, Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes. Brown and Paige Brown also produce through their PCMA Productions shingles. Executive producers include Legendary’s Joshua Grodd, as well as Michael Dreyer, Bradbeer and Thorne.

Brown was last seen in the Legendary-created monster hit “Godzilla vs. Kong,” and season four of Netflix’s “Stranger Things” is in the pipeline. Cavill is the star of Netflix’s fantasy series The Witcher. The second season of the series is set to hit the screens later this year.
