Why isn't Ritchie returning? OP neither knows nor cares, but Dexter Fletcher is here to save the day.
Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, The Judge) and Jude "iPhone Notch Hairline" Law are returning as Holmes and Watson, not to be confused with "Holmes and Watson" (2018).
Sherlock Holmes 3 is set to release on December 21st 2021, 10 years after film #2.
