Sherlock Holmes meets the supernatural? No, it’s not a decade-late Sherlock/Supernatural crossover. It’s a new Netflix series, The Irregulars.
The show is based on the Baker Street Irregulars gang from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original books. In the series, Holmes and Watson manipulate a group of teens into solving supernatural crimes. Check out the teaser trailer below:
