According to The Hollywood Reporter, the second season of Audible’s fictional podcast taking place in the Sherlock Holmes universe, Moriarty: The Silent Order, just announced a new lineup of actors who will be joining the latest installment. Helen Mirren, Anya Chalotra, Ross McCall and Arielle Goldman will star alongside the mystery thriller’s returning cast, which includes Dominic Monaghan as Professor James Moriarty and Phil LaMarr as Sherlock Holmes. The series’ sophomore season, available Nov. 9 exclusively on Audible, (spoiler alert) picks up six months after Moriarty survives near death at Reichenbach Falls and tracks down the woman he loves in New York City, where she is trapped in the web of The Order — an evil organization that stretches beyond Britain and the Crown, according to Audible. When he fails to break her free, he returns to London to take down the organization, led by Mirren’s Lady Milverton, the worst woman in London,” per her character description, “a pleasant, charming blackmailer who doesn’t believe in trust, only in leveraging to get people to do what she wants.” Mirren’s participation in the podcast amid the actors strike is permitted due to the fact that Audible does not fall under projects produced under the SAG-AFTRA TV/Theatrical Agreements. The podcast company has a bespoke agreement with SAG under their Audiobooks division, which also covers original audio content and is considered non-struck work.

It was lovely to be part of the rich, beautifully realized world of Moriarty. It’s fun for me to take on a villainous role, and I particularly enjoyed delving into the different dimensions of Lady Milverton. This story was my first podcast drama, and I couldn’t imagine a more exhilarating story as an entry into the format. (Helen Mirren)
