‘The Irregulars’: Netflix Releases Teaser & March Premiere For Sherlock Holmes-Related Drama
Netflix has released a little teaser trailer and announced a March premiere date for ‘The Irregulars‘, an interesting twisted take on the Sherlock Homles story.
Set in Victorian London, the series follows a gang of troubled delinquent teens who are manipulated into solving crimes for the sinister Doctor Watson and his elusive partner, Sherlock Holmes. As the crimes take on a horrifying supernatural edge and a dark power emerges, it’ll be up to the Irregulars to come together to save London, each other, and potentially the entire world.
the delinquent teens are played by Thaddea Graham (‘Letter For The King’, ‘Us’) as Bea, Darci Shaw (’Judy’, ‘The Bay’) as Jessie, Jojo Marcari (‘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’) takes the role of Sherlock, with Royce Pierreson (Judy’, ‘The Witcher’, ‘Line of Duty’) as Doctor Watson, and Clarke Peters (’His Dark Materials’, ‘The Wire’, ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing’, ‘Missouri’) as Linen Man.
The series is written and executive produced by Tom Bidwell (‘Watership Down’, ‘My Mad Fat Diary’), with Jude Liknaitzky (‘My Mad Fat Diary’, ‘Doctor Foster’) and Greg Brenman (‘Peaky Blinders’, ‘The Honourable Woman’) also exec producing. ‘The Irregulars’ is produced by Rebecca Hodgson (‘Good Cop’, ‘Deep Water’) and the lead director is Johnny Kenton (‘Endeavour’) with Joss Agnew (‘The Split’, ‘Poldark’) and Weronika Tofilska (‘Last Train’) also directing. The drama was filmed in Liverpool by production company Drama Republic.
‘The Irregulars‘ Season 1 premieres Friday, 26th March 2021 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
