Sherlock Gets Dark In ‘The Irregulars’ On Netflix

Netflix is certainly no stranger to Sherlock Holmes stories. We saw Enola Holmes last year, but this time, things are going in a much more sinister direction. Netflix has announced the eight part dark, mystery drama, The Irregulars , for later this month. Take a look at the first teaser.

Not exactly elementary, is it? According to Netflix, this story: “follows a gang of troubled street teens who are manipulated into solving crimes for the sinister Doctor Watson and his mysterious business partner, the elusive Sherlock Holmes. As the crimes take on a horrifying supernatural edge and a dark power emerges, the Irregulars (based on the Baker Street Irregulars gang from the original books by Sir Arther Conan Doyle) must come together to defeat larger than life forces.”

Taking a look at the cast, we have Thaddea Graham (Letter For The King, Us) as Bea; Darci Shaw (Judy, The Bay) as Jessie; Jojo Macari (Sex Education, Hard Sun) as Billy; Mckell David (Snatch, Damilola Our Loved Boy) as Spike and Harrison Osterfield (Catch 22) as Leopold; Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Killing Eve, The Inbetweeners, Indian Summers) as Sherlock Holmes; Royce Pierreson (Judy, The Witcher, Line of Duty) as John Watson and Clarke Peters (His Dark Materials, The Wire, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as The Linen Man.

Executive producer Tom Bidwell (Watership Down, My Mad Fat Diary) also wrote the script. Joining him are executive producers by Jude Liknaitzky (My Mad Fat Diary, Doctor Foster) and Greg Brenman (Peaky Blinders, The Honourable Woman) with producer Rebecca Hodgson (Good Cop, Deep Water). Johnny Allan (Endeavour) served as the main director with Joss Agnew (The Split, Poldark) and Weronika Tofilska (Last Train).

See how the twisted tale unfolds when The Irregulars begins March 26th on Netflix.
