Downey’s Sherlock Holmes spins-off into series

The actor is unlikely to return as the title character

Warner Bros

Two spin-offs of the Robert Downey Jr-Jude Law starring “Sherlock Holmes” are in the works with Warner Media for HBO Max, says Deadline.

The headline stars won’t return for the small-screen outings, which will focus on new characters.

Executive produced by Team Downey’s Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey, each of the proposed series would focus on a different character.

Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, and Team Downey’s Amanda Burrell are exec producing alongside Wigram Productions’ Lionel Wigram, who produced the two movies.

A third “Sherlock Holmes” film, production of which has been delayed two years now, has still not inched forward. The future of the series reportedly depends on the film’s fate.
