Two Sherlock Holmes Shows In The Works For HBO Max


It’s been revealed that there are two Sherlock Holmes shows in development for HBO Max and Robert Downey Jr. will be acting as an executive producer on the show.

This news comes to us via The Hollywood Reporter.

Their article also revealed that these series will be executive produced by Sherlock Holmes star Robert Downey Jr.

He’ll be joined by Lionel Wigram who’ll also be serving as an executive producer on these new series.

These two shows are currently in the very early stages of development.

The Hollywood Reporter’s article then states that they aren’t sure whether Downey Jr. will reprise his role of Holmes in the upcoming shows.

My guess is no and that these shows might offer a new look at a younger Holmes.

However, that could be completely wrong.

Downey might be looking to play the character again and he might like the idea of starring in a new limited series on HBO Max.
