Lupin 2

We’ve all heard of Sherlock Holmes but who is Herlock Sholmes? Well, the story behind his existence is very funny. Due to copyright reasons, the producers couldn’t exactly use the name, Sherlock Holmes. So, they decided to make some changes to the name and use it in the series. 

Arthur Conan Doyle is the genius behind the creation of the world’s most famous detective in 1891, Sherlock Holmes. His stories were translated into French and received immense popularity. Maurice Leblanc took inspiration from these stories and created his own character, Arsene Lupin- a gentleman burglar. Leblanc uses Sherlock Holmes’ character in his stories when a man approaches him, suspecting that Lupin is about to rob him. Holmes runs into Lupin, who ends up stealing his watch. Before things could proceed much further, Conan and his lawyers made a call to Leblanc. And asked him to stop or they’d sue him for copyrights. So what does Leblanc do instead of abandoning his story? He simply changed Sherlock Holmes’ name to Herlock Sholmes and carried on with his story!

Now, the question that we are all curious about is whether this new season will feature Sherlock Holmes or Herlock Sholmes. We do think that Netflix will follow the source material and hire an imitator of Benedict Cumberbatch and name him Herlock Holmes.
