    The new Sherlock Holmes-based Prime Video series ‘Young Sherlock‘ will feature Fiennes Tiffin in the title role. The series would be directed and executive produced by Guy Ritchie, and is set to premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

    Written and executive produced by showrunner Matthew Parkhill, ‘Young Sherlock‘ promises an irreverent, action-packed origin story of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved detective. It shows the popular detective in his teens, disgraced, raw, unfiltered, and unformed.

    The 19-year-old lead character gets embroiled in a murder mystery at Oxford University that threatens his freedom. Despite his lack of discipline, Sherlock’s first case leads him to uncover a conspiracy that will change his life forever.

    The executive production team of the show will include Simon Kelton, Ivan Atkinson, Simon Maxwell, Dhana Gilbert, Colin Wilson, and Marc Resteghini, with Harriet Creelman taking on the role of co-executive producer.

He shared his enthusiasm for the project recently. “In ‘Young Sherlock’, we’re going to see an exhilarating new version of the detective everyone thinks they know in a way they’ve never imagined before. We’re going to crack open this enigmatic character, find out what makes him tick, and learn how he becomes the genius we all love,” he said.

    The head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, Vernon Sanders, also expressed his excitement. “This exciting new chapter about one of the world’s best-known literary characters will delight our global customers with its captivating storytelling,” she said.

    With the brilliant creative team led by Guy Ritchie and Matthew Parkhill, we will explore untold mysteries of how young Sherlock found his way to a life of truth-seeking,” he said.

    The show reunites Ritchie and Tiffin, who previously collaborated for ‘The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare‘. Further details of the show are still under wraps.
