‘Elementary’ At NY PaleyFest: Rhys Ifans Confirmed For Season 2; Other Castings

By | Saturday October 5, 2013 @ 6:07pm PDT

Diane Haithman contributes to Deadline’s TV coverage.

Sherlock Holmes’ brother Mycroft Holmes (Rhys Ifans) “will absolutely be back” in Season 2 of CBS’ Elementary, creator/producer Robert Doherty confirmed at this evening’s PaleyFest: Made in NY panel. Doherty said the series plans to include “as much as we can get” of the character. “You’ll see him a couple more times in the first 12 (episodes) and four more times in the back 12,” said Doherty, who was joined on the panel by EPs Craig Sweeney and Carl Beverly and cast members Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu, Aidan Quinn and Jon Michael Hill. The panel was moderated by TV Guide’s Bruce Fretts. Doherty added that Mycroft will be coming to New York and “circumstances will draw him back into Sherlock and Joan’s orbit”. Producers also confirmed that guest Natalie Dormer (as Irene Adler) will return “around midseason” and that the show hopes to have Sean Pertwee return as Inspector Lestrade but nothing has been confirmed.
