Sam Claflin and his character, Mycroft Holmes doesn't appear with Millie Bobby Brown & Henry Cavill in Enola Holmes 2.

To continue the most recent interpretation of the cherished Sherlock Holmes universe, Enola Holmes 2 will soon be available on Netflix. In this rendition, Millie Bobby Brown plays Sherlock's sister Enola, best known for her role on Stranger Things.

The movie devotes a lot of time to the Holmes family, with Sam Claflin from Peaky Blinders playing Mycroft and Millie co-stars with Henry Cavill from The Witcher in the legendary role of Sherlock Holmes.

Why Is Sam Claflin Not In Enola Holmes 2? 

Fans have speculated that Sam Claflin is absent on Enola Homes 2 due to the schedule conflicts.

Recently, Netflix revealed the date for the eagerly anticipated Enola Holmes sequel, which is based on the same-named books by Nancy Springer. The streaming behemoth also made set photos available, showing the favorite characters ready to return to the bizarre mystery.

The first glimpse shows veteran Helena Bonham Carter and actor Louis Partridge reprising their roles as Mama Holmes and Tewkesbury, respectively.

Additionally, Henry Cavill will portray the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. He may even work with his sister Enola to solve a case. However, Mycroft Holmes (Sam), the third and oldest Holmes sibling, was completely absent. In addition, he is not included on any internet cast lists for the upcoming movie. 

Sam Claflin is probably not a part of Enola Holmes 2 unless there is a significant revelation in the movie's official trailer. Since Sam was chosen to play the lead in Daisy Jones and the Six on Prime Video, there most likely were schedule conflicts with Sam and Enola Holmes 2.

Sam spoke candidly in a previous interview about returning to the Enola Holmes sequel

Sam Claflin expressed his desire to return for a Netflix success sequel to Enola Holmes in an interview with Movie Web from 2020. Since its debut, Netflix's Enola Holmes has quickly risen to the top of the viewing lists and established itself as a huge hit with both consumers and critics.

As discussion swiftly shifted to the franchise's future, star Sam Claflin expressed his strong interest in returning for Enola Holmes 2 and any subsequent entries.

Claflin also talked about working with the other Sherlock brothers, portrayed by Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill from Stranger Things and Man of Steel. 

Claflin could not help but feel frightened when positioned next to two science fiction legends.

What Happened To Mycroft Holmes In Enola Holmes 2?

The fact that the three Holmes brothers from Enola Holmes all have significant parts in different Netflix series is delightful. Sam Claflin plays Oswald Mosley in Peaky Blinders, while Henry Cavill plays the title character Geralt in the historical fantasy The Witcher. 

Enola Holmes has a history of favoring a single male character that is disgusting, sexist, a pig, and consistently rebels against Enola's and the story's feminist goals. That character in the first movie was Mycroft Holmes (Sam Claflin), a government worker who served as Enola's legal guardian at the time and was generally a misogynist. 

Although it would be wonderful to see the three British actors reunite as siblings, the movie is already in the works. One can only hope that Sam Claflin serves as a delightful surprise for the audience.

Enola Holmes 2 Plot

In the movie's synopsis, which Netflix posted in February 2022, it is stated that Enola's next case would include her working with Sherlock to locate a missing girl. However, further mysteries must undoubtedly exist beneath the surface of the disappearance.

There isn't much information to go on regarding the kind of story Bradbeer & Thorne will be presenting in the eagerly awaited sequel, but based on what is known, we can anticipate Enola to be making lots of trouble once more as she investigates her new case.

The reform bill associated with the women's suffrage movement, in which both Eudoria and Edith are actively engaged, serves as one of the primary plot points in the first movie.

It's quite possible that this plotline will be brought up again in some fashion in the second movie, given that a major theme of the movie series is women's freedom and strength, both through the characters and the plot.

Enola Holmes ends with Tewkesbury's crucial vote helping the reform bill pass in the House of Lords, which is fantastic news for Eudoria and her fellow supporters. However, England in the 1800s still has a long way to go before equality is achieved, and it would be interesting to see the film's progressive ideals explored in other facets of 19th-century life as well.

In addition, Tewkesbury's membership in the House of Lords may be significant to the sequel's plot and involvement, but it's unknown how political the film series intends to be. 

Since Enola Holmes is geared toward a broad audience, we may anticipate that the follow-up will tell a similarly simple and enjoyable tale with a central mystery for Enola to solve. We can also wager that Enola and Tewkesbury's budding romance will be further upon in Enola Holmes 2, as well as a deeper examination of Enola and Sherlock's sibling bond.
