The Irregulars: Netflix’s supernatural Sherlock Holmes spin-off tells a tale of the street kids

The series tells the story of the street kids who helped Holmes and Dr. Watson with their investigation

Netflix made an official announcement regarding their upcoming series The Irregulars in February 2021, and also released some first look images and a teaser trailer. Further promotional events will be happening in March.

Endeavour director Johnny Kenton is part of the project in some way, and so is short film director Weronika Tofilska. The series has been created by Oscar-niminated writer Tom Bidwell (Watership Down) and tells the story of the street kids who were part of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s canon in helping Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson with their various investigations. The series will be premiering on Netflix on March 26, 2021.

What’s the plot?

The crimes soon start getting horrifying and supernatural, and after the emergence of a mysterious dark power, it’s up to the Irregulars to come together to save London, and in a way, the entire world.
