"As the crimes take on a horrifying supernatural edge and a dark power emerges, the Irregulars (based on the Baker Street Irregulars gang from the original books by Sir Arther Conan Doyle) must come together to defeat larger than life forces."

Sounds fun, right?

Embracing on The Irregulars

The supernatural aspect will probably be the topic of much debate for diehard Sherlock Holmes fans, but could this be an intriguing new direction to take the sleuth?

The series also stars Royce Pierreson (Judy, The Witcher, Line of Duty) as John Watson and Clarke Peters (His Dark Materials, The Wire, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as The Linen Man.
