Murder Mystery was a surprise hit for Netflix back in 2019, when it topped the list of everything released on the streamer throughout the year, surpassing titles including Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, the third season of Stranger Things, and the Oscar-winning animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.


And now Murder Mystery is getting the sequel treatment, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston reuniting to reprise their roles form the first instalment.

The first movie follows New York cop Nick Spitz (Sandler), who whisks his wife Audrey (Aniston) on holiday in an attempt to fix their marriage only to end up getting framed for the murder of an elderly billionaire.

However, when the couple are forced to solve the crime and clear their names whilst on the run, their adventure ends up doing exactly what their holiday failed to do: bring them closer.

The sequel will bring Spitz and Audrey back onto our screens as they work to keep their private investigation agency afloat.

When their friend, the Mahajara (Adeel Akhtar), is kidnapped during his own wedding, they once again find themselves on a comic adventure to solve another murder, which, if successful, could just put their agency back on the map.

Murder Mystery 2 is directed by Jeremy Garelick with a script by James Vanderbilt, who also wrote the first movie’s screenplay, but when can we expect it to land on Netflix? Read on for everything you need to know about the sequel.
