After the incredible success of Murder Mystery, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Netflix has commissioned a sequel for the Adam Sandler comedy. Filming came to an end earlier in 2022, and has since been in post-production. There’s still no word on a release date, however, we now expect to see Murder Mystery on Netflix sometime in 2023.
Murder Mystery 2 is an upcoming Netflix Original comedy movie, and the sequel to Netflix’s incredibly successful 2019 comedy, Murder Mystery. Jeremy Garelick replaces Kyle Newacheck as the director of the project, but James Vanderbilt has returned to write the sequel.
Murder Mystery is one of Netflix’s most successful Originals ever, thanks to amassing an audience of over 83 million households. If Murder Mystery 2 was to replicate even half the success of its predecessor we’d suspect Netflix will be incredibly happy.

Who are the cast members of Murder Mystery 2?
Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston have been confirmed to be returning to reprise their roles of Nick and Audrey Spitz.

MCU fans will be familiar with John Kani thanks to his brief stint in the franchise as King T’Chaka, the father of T’Challa.
Adeel Akhtar was last seen on Netflix in Enola Holmes as Detective Lestrade, and will reprise his role in Enola Holmes 2. Akhtar was hilarious in the British comedy Four Lions, and a fan favorite in the British cult show Utopia.
The remaining cast members have yet to have their roles revealed, however, we expect the likes of Mark Strong, Melania Laurent and Jodie Turner-Smith to give great, and hilarious performances.
