These two potential spinoff series from the Warner Bros. movie franchise starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are in early development at HBO Max. Executive produced by Team Downey’s Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey, each of the proposed series would focus on a different character.
The potential shows would be set in the world of 2009’s “Sherlock Holmes” and 2011’s “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” starring Robert Downey Jr. as the master detective and Jude Law as Dr. John Watson, which were inspired by the books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. According to sources, the two shows would each focus on a new character that would be introduced in “Sherlock Holmes 3.”
“Sherlock Holmes” proved to be a massive hit for Warner Bros., with the film grossing over $524 million worldwide against a reported budget of $90 million. “A Game of Shadows” went on to gross over $543 million worldwide two years later. The third film was originally intended to be released in December 2020, before it was pushed back to December 22, 2021. With that date now come and gone, the third film does not have a release date and is not currently in production.
