The Irregulars teaser: It has been 5 years since we saw Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman solving complex cases together in London. As Sherlock and Dr John Watson, they have become our favourite detective duo of the last decade. Will there be a season 5 or not? Only the makers know. But Netflix has presented us with a series that can manage to fill the season 5 void for some time. If you are wondering why and how, well, keep on reading.
Today, Netflix shared a teaser of The Irregulars which features a team of young detectives – but that’s not the only common factor. The story is set in London and the address shown in the video is 221B Baker Street. Did it ring any bells? Of course, it did! Any die-hard Sherlock fan knows this is the place where our favourite high-functioning sociopath and his partner reside, receive/refuse, brainstorm and work on cases (sometimes).
The 1 minute 12 seconds teaser of The Irregulars gave us a clear hint of how the show is nothing like BBC’s Sherlock. Here, the group of misfits (as described by Netflix) has to tackle supernatural cases. Isn’t it interesting? In the teaser, there’s a voiceover of a man intending to give us the creeps and intensity to expect in the series.
Everything looks promising in the teaser. The twist of having them connected with Sherlock Holmes is also thrilling. But what caught our attention is one line in the background. The voiceover says, “You think you’ve seen horror? You know nothing of what it is to be afraid.” Well, we are ready for anything ghostly the makers have in store for us.
On YouTube, The Irregulars‘ official description is as such – Welcome to 19th-century London, where The Irregulars – a group of misfits, work to solve supernatural crimes at the behest of Dr. Watson and his elusive partner, Sherlock Holmes.
The series will release on Netflix on March 26, 2021. Check out the teaser below:
In the comments section, Sherlock Holmes fans have shared their reactions. Some fans have talked about waiting for season 5 starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, many are expressing their curiosity to catch up on this spin-off type series soon.

Coming to Sherlock Season 5, only speculations have been floating for the past few years. But fans are hoping they will get to see their favourite detective duo on the screen soon. Another Sherlock saga in the making is Robert Downey Jr’s threequel. Also starring Jude Law, the threequel was confirmed last year. However, Dexter Fletcher, the director of Sherlock Holmes 3 had earlier confirmed that the film has been indefinitely pushed back.
