This New Show Puts a Supernatural Twist on ‘Sherlock Holmes’
The dark new drama premieres on the streaming service in March
Over the years, adaptations and spinoffs inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes novels have been plentiful in pop culture. The BBC series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman is a popular example; the films starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law another. Recently, there’s been the film adaptation of Enola Holmes, based on the novels by Nancy Springer, a young adult series that borrows characters and settings from the Sherlock Holmes canon.
This coming March, a new story is set to come out of that world: The Irregulars, a reimagining of the Baker Street Irregulars from the Sherlock Holmes novels. In Netflix’s adaptation, according to Entertainment Weekly, creator Tom Bidwell “reimagined the young gang of boys into a slightly older group of teens who are the only ones who can stop an impending dark magical threat from London.”
And, here’s the catch: “They don’t need Holmes to do it.”
The Irregulars premieres on Netflix on March 26 at 3 p.m.
