The Irregulars is Netflix’s latest remix on the world of Sherlock Holmes. Except for this time, it focuses on a group of teens living on the street who are coerced into helping Watson and Holmes solve supernatural crimes happening around London.
Since season 1 just aired last month, we’re definitely going to have to wait a bit before season 2 arrives. But that doesn’t mean there’s no news about what’s next for the Netflix Original show.
Check out everything we know about The Irregulars season 2 release date and more!
How many seasons of The Irregulars are there?
So far, there is only one season of The Irregulars and it became available to stream on Netflix on Friday, March 26.
Is there going to be a season 2 of The Irregulars?
The short answer is yes! According to a report from What’s on Netflix, Netflix renewed the series for a second season in mid-March of 2021 before season 1 even aired. Clearly, they had faith in season 1 and expected fans to want another season.
They were also probably thinking of the massive popularity of Enola Holmes and betting that this reincarnation of the Holmes world would be a hit as well.
How many episodes will be in season 2 of The Irregulars?
Since season 1 was eight episodes, it’s likely a second season will be a similar length.
Unless the creators want to add more elements to the story and need to expand the number of episodes, it’s most likely going to be another eight-episode season.
When is The Irregulars season 2 filming?
It’s been announced by Newsweek that production has already started in Liverpool. Since Netflix already greenlit the second season, filming will probably continue until later this year to ensure the second season comes out early to midway through 2022.
The Irregulars season 2 release date
While we don’t have an official release date, we’ll most likely see a new season around the same time as we did this year (around late March).
Most Netflix dramas come out with a season per year, so it’s very unlikely we’d see season 2 in 2021. If they finish filming by the end of this year, we should see season 2 in the first half of 2022.
As for the cast, it’s likely all the main characters will be back. Thaddea Graham, McKell David, Jojo Macari, Darci Shaw, and Harrison Osterfield will most likely all be back. Their characters were all alive and well at the end of season 1.
Osterfield’s character, Prince Leopold, might not spend as much time with the Irregulars crew as he did in season 1. As we saw in the season finale, he’s set to be married, but he shouldn’t be excluded from the show’s storyline entirely.
Royce Pierreson is also likely to be back as the mysterious Dr. John Watson. He may have been heartbroken at the end of season 1, but he’ll be back to help the gang solve whatever the next mystery is haunting London.
As for Sherlock (played by Henry Lloyd-Hughes), we will likely only see him in flashbacks if we see him at all. And if you don’t know why, just go watch season 1 and try not to drown in your own tears. We’re unlikely to see Jessie and Bea’s mother, Alice, either as she was sent back into The Rip.
