The fantasy drama show, The Irregulars, which was a spin-off series of Sherlock Holmes won’t be happening for The Irregulars Season 2. This news has come as a huge shock and disappointment to the fans of the series. The fans have contributed a lot in bringing The Irregulars to the number one spot in the ‘Top 10 most popular lists’ in US and UK.
About The Irregulars Season 1
The horror, fantasy, crime drama spin-off was released on 26th March 2021 and it became a recipient of a mixture of pretty and fairly good reviews from the critics as well as fans, but also some criticism from some of them.
Despite this news having been clearly confirmed, the fans and audience are still retaining their hopes for The Irregulars Season 2 for a while. But with no official announcements updated, they are giving away their hopes gradually.
Also, we are assuming that Netflix would want to finance The Irregulars Season 2 because of its evident achievement and would try to get the production on Season 2 and run the show as soon as it could. This type of move is also dependent on the show maker Tom Bidwell and the cast of The Irregulars if they are available for investing their time in the renewal of the show.
Why was The Irregulars Season 2 canceled?
The first installment of the mystery crime drama has been able to receive deserving and favorable reviews and a green light was rumored to have been given to The Irregulars Season 2 for its renewal before the series premiered. But, Netflix aired The Irregulars in March 2021 but decided to stop after Season 1.
So visibly, something or anything went wrong with the series after it got released in March 2021. Looking back to many of the cancellations of shows by Netflix, we can figure out that the cast and crew of The Irregulars might have become the sufferers of the circumstances and the bad timing.
Assuming that the whole main cast members were willing to move forward with The Irregulars Season 2, the show might have been canceled by Netflix as it didn’t get to become a multi-season hit.
One more of the reasons for the cancellation of the show may have been the content. The cases shown handled by the star team of The Irregulars were quite often burial and disturbing. Plus, the weird supernatural stuff was also way too spooky.
The Plot of The Irregulars
The Irregulars at first seems like a normal, supernatural drama series including a bunch of street kids, who are struggling to support themselves. They get involved in petty and immature crimes for earning money for survival.
But the arrival of a “well-known” confederate of one of the Legendary Fictional Detectives, known by everybody, Sherlock Holmes, brings much attraction to the show and a lot of mystery and suspense.
The story focuses on the characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The Irregulars has been set in a part of Victorian London and it shows 4 street children and a prince beneath the wings of 221B Baker Street, The Irregulars, Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes.
As the name of the series suggests, the children are nothing compared to the extraordinary Sherlock Holmes but, they are very much superior because of their passion. Throughout the series, The Irregulars unveil the spread of evil in London with the help of a sequence of missions.
Fantasy Elements and Scientific Theories
There is a demon in the show who is the main antagonist of the show. The demon’s objective involves opening the link or bridge set between the Human World and the Demon World.
The link or magical portal, known as “the rip” in the show, connects both the world and the mission of the Demon of expanding and merging both the worlds and exposing the earth to various multi-verse will become successful and will allow demons to possess human bodies.
The lesson is given at the conclusion of the Show
The Irregulars, with the help of Jessie’s supernatural magical powers, attempt hard to restrict the demon from opening “the rip”. In the end, all the characters attempt to close “the rip” and manage to do so with some tough sacrifices. But they learn that it is very important to let go of selfishness for the well-being and prosperity of Humanity.
