The Irregulars Season 2 cast updates
Most of the young cast members will likely be back for The Irregulars Season 2.
This would include Theddea Graham (Bea), Darci Shaw (Jessie), McKell David (Spike), and Jojo Macari (Billy) as the Baker Street Irregulars.
It is unknown if Harrison Osterfield will return to the role of Prince Leopold, as he left at the end of the first season. However, as such an important part, if the kids need help again, he could very well return.
Royce Pierreson should also return as Dr. John Watson, the man who brought the kids in to help him in Season 1.
However, Sherlock Holmes (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) is likely gone completely, as he walked off into the abyss in Season 1. However, since this is a Sherlock Holmes spinoff series, he could possibly return.
The Irregulars Season 2 spoilers
The first season of The Irregulars saw the Baker Street Irregulars pop into action. This group of kids first appeared in A Study in Scarlet, a Sherlock Holmes story published in 1897. They also appeared here and there throughout the Holmes stories.
The good news is that fans won’t have to wait anxiously to see what happens in The Irregulars. The first season had a proper ending, and the second will almost surely start a new adventure for the Baker Street Irregulars.
The first season made two of the Irregulars the main focus, as Bea and Jessie teamed up with their friends and allies to stop the Rip, which opened a portal between worlds.
The Linen Man found his way into our world and it was up to these kids to stop them, thanks to Dr. John Watson knowing that Jessie had powers.
This was due to the fact that their mother was Alice, and she had powers and a connection to Sherlock Holmes in the past. The Linen Man persuaded Holmes to open the Rip and he would take him to Alice, who had crossed over years before.
The Linen Man planned to use the Rip to develop powers to rule over all humans through fear and nightmares.
It was Jessie, using her powers, to stop the Linen Man, forcing him to remember everyone he ever hurt in his life and breaking him. As he fell to his death in the end, he told Jessie her mother Alice opened the Rip.
This forced Jessie to battle her mother Alice, who had gone mad after 15 years on the other side. She wanted to bring her family into the other side and destroy Earth in the process. Jessie and Bea stood up to their mother and finally bid her goodbye again and closed the Rip.
However, the end also had a twist. Sherlock Holmes leaped into the Rip and went to the other side to join Alice and repent for originally opening the Rip 15 years ago.
With Sherlock Holmes gone, one wonders if John Watson will try to get him back in Season 2 or if The Irregulars will just move on with a fresh new supernatural tale for the Baker Street Irregulars.
Netflix has yet to announce when The Irregulars Season 2 will premiere.
