OMG. Wait, it's real? It's actually premiering next year? And we've got details?! The cast is awesome?! Yes, yes and yes.

Yes. As most loyal fans know, Millie Bobby Brown is set to produce and star in the Enola Holmes series under her PCMA Productions company.
And finally, the Enola Holmes series is coming together!
First, here's the gist: The Enola Holmes series will be based on the young adult novels under the same name, written by Nancy Springer. It's centred around Enola Holmes, Sherlock's bright and intelligent younger sister.
Uh, looks like Sherlock isn't the only brilliant detective in the family. Who else is looking forward to this spin in the world of Sherlock Holmes?
Oh, and will Enola get her own Watson? We don't know yet, but what we do know, is that the series is currently in pre-production, and get this:
There's actually quite a star-studded cast involved.
Can anyone guess who'll play Sherlock Holmes? It's actually none other than Man of Steel's Henry Cavill, who played as Clarke Kent/Superman. Judging from his age, this Sherlock Holmes might be in his prime as a detective.
Who else is wondering how this will affect the dynamic between the smart siblings?
And who else is in the cast? Well, Helena Bonham Carter, who's known for her role as Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter film series, and she'll be playing as Enola’s mother.
Next, is Murder Mystery's Adeel Akhtar AKA Maharajah, Harry Potter's Fiona Shaw AKA Petunia Dursley and finally, The Hunger Games' Sam Claflin AKA Finnick Odair.
It's unclear what roles they'll be playing, but they make an impressive cast, don't they?
And who's the director? A highly anticipated series will need an awesome director and a talented writer, right?
Well, the director is none other than Harry Bradbeer, winner of the British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series and the writer is Jack Thorne. He's won five BAFTA awards: Best Mini-Series for This is England '88, Best Drama Series for The Fades, Best Single for Don't Take My Baby, Best Serial for This is England '90 and finally, Best Original Series for National Treasure.
Looks like we have a winning recipe here.
And the Enola Holmes novels? The books altogether have over 24,000 ratings with an average rating score of 4.06 out of 5 in Goodreads, a popular book review site. (For those who don't know, these ratings are pretty impressive).
Not to mention the first and fifth books in the series were Edgar Awards nominations in 2007 and 2010, respectively.
And the best part? Well, there are six novels. So could we be expecting six episodes?
So, get to the point! When is Enola Holmes premiering?!
Well, here's the plan. Production is expected to commence in the summer this year, so it’s right around the corner! And the premiere date? Next year 2020. A little way away, but...
We think it'll be worth it.
