As it turns out, and probably should not come as a surprise to anyone, sleuthing runs in the Holmes family. The new Enola Holmes headlines this week’s upcoming Netflix releases, and stars Millie Bobby Brown in the title role–the younger sister of the famous Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes. Brown, perhaps best known for Netflix’s Stranger Things, takes on the role of the teenaged Enola, opposite the already-famous Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin). In this film adaptation of the Nancy Springer book series with the same name, Enola vies to be taken seriously as a lady, a detective, and also embarks on a quest to find her missing mother. Enola Holmes comes to Netflix on September 23.
On either side of that date, meanwhile, are some great opportunities to stave off early onset seasonal affective disorder with some laughter. On September 22, Season 4 of British comedian Jack Whitehall’s travelogue series Travels with My Father sets sail for Australia. Seeing how past seasons have seen the mismatched pair of perky comedian and party-pooper curmudgeonly father stumble into a Magic Mike show in Las Vegas, wander through the site of the Chernobyl disaster, and attempt parkour in Thailand–it shouldn’t be hard for them to get up to some shenanigans in Australia.
Fast-forward to September 26, and the fourth and final season of NBC’s afterworld sitcom The Good Place will be coming to Netflix. For those who haven’t yet seen how it all wraps it up, it’s probably best to side-step potential spoilers and recount the show’s premise: Kristen Bell stars as Eleanor Shellstrop, a woman who has died and gets welcomed to the titular “good place” by a secret ethereal architect, Michael, played by Ted Danson. If you happen to not be current on the show, it would be inadvisable to skip to the final season first–there are lots of twists along the way that we won’t spoil for you here.
