Are you ready for a new period crime drama to check out? Want something with a supernatural twist? The Irregulars is on Netflix tonight.

You’ll be able to start watching the series from 3:01 a.m. ET tonight. That’s 12:01 a.m. PT.

For this series, you’ll want to forget everything you know about the world of Sherlock Holmes. Yes, Holmes and Dr. Watson turn up in the series, but they are not the people you’ve come to know in the various works of art over the years. In fact, they’re darker and more sinister than you will be able to believe.

They’re not the ones who have solved all the crimes around Victorian London. You can thank the Baker Street Irregulars for that. While in Sir Arthur Conan Doyles’s novels the group of kids help to gather clues, in this series, they are the ones who have solved the crimes.

A supernatural element to The Irregulars

The series also touches on the supernatural. While Holmes and Watson take credit for the solving of crimes, the group of teenagers deals with the supernatural threats in London. If the teens don’t take care of the supernatural threats, the entire world is at stake.

Harry Lloyd-Hughes and Royce Pierreson star as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, but this isn’t their story. It’s about the five teens known as “The Baker Street Irregulars.” They’re played by:

  • Rhaddea Graham as Bea, the leader of the group
  • Darci Shaw as Jessie
  • Jojo Macari as Billy
  • McKell David as Spike
  • Harrison Osterfield as Leopold

All eight episodes will drop as once, which is standard for Netflix. You’ll be able to spend all of Friday, March 26 binge-watching the series. Yeah, we know what you’re doing!

The great news is you can get to the end without worrying about being invested. Netflix has already renewed The Irregulars for a second season.
