Netflix is known for putting out various shows for us viewers every season. Most of them tend to take the same view of teenage romance, but here we have something quite unique and interesting. The Irregulars is an upcoming crime drama TV series based on a universe created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This story is based on a group of teenagers living on Baker Street. These kids were called Irregulars, who were often known for looking for clues to Sherlock Holmes. This show has a different view from the story in which Sherlock Holmes is a drug addict and criminal. The Irregulars will work with Dr. Watson for solving supernatural mysteries on the streets of London, the credit of which is taken by Sherlock Holmes.
Tom Budwell, the man who directs Netflix’s Watership Down, is the creator of this show. ‘The Irregulars’ is an old idea from Tom Bidwell which became his dream project. He envisions a fairly unique spin-off that takes a different perspective on the relationship between Holmes and Irregular. The main story takes place on Baker Street in Victoria London. Here, there are some supernatural elements that seem to be causing havoc.
The Season 1 teaser trailer for Irregulars will be released on February 22, 2021. The show will be an eight-episode series that will premiere on Netflix on March 26, 2021.
The Irregulars Season 2 Rumors Update
Netflix is rumored to have planned The Irregulars Season 2 ahead of the premiere of Season 1. Netflix seems confident with its Sherlock Holmes spin-off series. Season 2 was postponed and finally resumed production as filming concluded between August and September 2020. And if the source is correct, production for The Irregulars Season 2 will begin shooting in Liverpool, England in the summer of 2021. Like The Irregulars Season 1, Season 2 will also created by Tom Bidwell. He will be joined by Greg Brennan, Jude Liknaitzky, Michael Ray, and Rebecca Hodgson as producers.
To date, Netflix hasn’t officially announced The Irregulars Season 2, but we hope it will be announced as soon as Season 1 releases. This isn’t the first time Netflix has decided to update the show before its initial season release. The Irregulars could be the first in the Sherlock Holmes universe spin-off lineup. Another project that will be coming soon is a feature film titled, Sherlock Junior.

What’s the Season 2 Irregulars Release Date?
Irregulars Season 2 will be released sometime in the summer of 2022. If the reports are considered true, Irregulars Season 2 will start shooting sometime this summer. Given season 1 itself has been delayed, it is likely that the team has started pre-production for The Irregulars Season 2. Previously, a show would only have taken a year or so. But now, due to pandemic restrictions, production is likely to take longer. So, this might even push the release date further into Fall 2022.But, if all goes according to plan, The Irregulars Season 2 will be out in the summer of 2022.
This eight-episode series appears to be an ace in Netflix’s hands as they are confident enough to invest in a long-term cast plan for the show.
