Well, there isn’t a genre yet that Netflix, the streaming giant, hasn’t covered. But when it comes to the mix of mystery and thriller genres, this platform has great original and licensed content like Stranger Things and Riverdale. Now, the creators came up with The Irregulars. The show is somewhat British and excels in the drama as well as crime genres. This has been specially created by Drama Republic. The inspiration for the show was drawn from the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The main focus of this series will be placed on the Baker Street Irregulars who all work under the leadership of Dr. Watson. This is their way of saving London from threats and supernatural elements that might cause trouble.
The creator of this series is Tom Bidwell. Rebecca Hodgson is the producer of The Irregulars while we have Tom Bidwell and Greg Brenman and Jude Liknaitzky as executive producers. There will be eight parts in the first installment of the show. So, the main protagonist in this series is The Irregulars. They are a group of teenagers living in Victoria London. They are all related to Dr. Watson and work under him to solve the supernatural crimes that have been on the rise in London recently. The main change here is that it is Sherlock Holmes who gets the prize for their work.

Netflix Irregulars Release Dates and Plots
For the first time, it was revealed in the media in December 2018 that Netflix had decided to work on a new project while joining forces with Tom Bidwell. It is said that the streaming giant will be working on the Baker Street Irregulars. In one of the interviews with Tom Bidwell, he announced that this was his dream project and wanted to do it for a long time. So far, we knew from the premise that this show would be very unique. We’ve always seen Sherlock work alone with Dr. Watson and solve crimes in London. But this time, we have a new group of people who will help Dr. Watson as well as Sherlock and thus, a new protagonist has been created. Every time our Sherlock sits in a good place but this time, he’s just going to be a drug addict doing nothing. He was going to use this group of kids to solve his case and take credit in the end.
Truth be told, no one can say that they didn’t anticipate how the show would draw its plot and what all the crimes would be solved. It is a legacy that all adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work have become a treat for fans who admire the genre. There are various locations designated for the filming of the series. It all started in December 2019 after the casting process was completed at Dorfold Hall. Later, they moved to Liverpool. Recently, Netflix has released a teaser trailer for the show stating the release date. The Irregulars will be released on March 26, 2021 only on Netflix.
