It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Netflix has ordered a sequel for the Adam Sandler comedy after Murder Mystery’s phenomenal success. Early in 2022, filming came to a close, and post-production has now begun. Although a release date has yet to be announced, we now anticipate that Murder Mystery will appear on Netflix sometime in 2023. The follow-up to Netflix’s wildly popular 2019 comedy, Murder Mystery, is the upcoming Netflix Original comedy film, Murder Mystery 2. Kyle Newacheck is replaced as the project’s director by Jeremy Garelick, while James Vanderbilt is back to pen the follow-up. One of Netflix’s most popular Originals ever, Murder Mystery has amassed a viewership of over 83 million homes. If Murder Mystery 2 manages to equal even a fraction of the success of its predecessor, we have a feeling Netflix will be overjoyed.
What is Murder Mystery 2’s storyline?
At the time of writing, no plot details for Murder Mystery 2 had been revealed. We might expect to receive a brief narrative synopsis once filming begins in January 2022.
Who are the Murder Mystery 2 cast members?
It has been reported that Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston will reprise their roles as Nick and Audrey Spitz. If you include Uncut Gems, which is a Netflix Original outside of the United States, Sandler will have starred in eleven Netflix Original films. Murder Mystery 2’s new cast members include:
John Kani as Colonel Ulenga
Adeel Akhtar as The Maharajah
MCU fans will recognise John Kani from his brief appearance in the franchise as King T’Chaka, T’Challa’s father. Adeel Akhtar was last seen on Netflix as Detective Lestrade in Enola Holmes, and he will reprise his role in Enola Holmes 2. Akhtar was a fan favourite in the British cult drama Utopia and was hilarious in the British comedy Four Lions.
The remaining cast members’ roles have yet to be disclosed, but we anticipate fantastic and funny performances from Mark Strong, Melania Laurent, and Jodie Turner-Smith.
When will Murder Mystery 2 be available on Netflix?
In the first few months of 2022, Murder Mystery 2 was filmed. Beginning on January 28th, 2022, principal photography continued for three months until coming to a finish on April 26th, 2022. We are aware that Hawaii and Paris, France, were employed as the backdrops for the movies. Similar to the first movie, production will be handled by Happy Madison Productions, Adam Sandler’s own company.
We do not anticipate seeing Murder Mystery 2 on Netflix until the end of 2022 because there has been no indication from the streaming provider. The sequel is now anticipated to debut on Netflix sometime in the first half of 2023.
