After the incredible success of Murder MysteryIt should come as no surprise that Netflix ordered a sequel to the Adam Sandler comedy. With filming set to begin in Hawaii in January 2022, we still have a long wait ahead of us before Murder Mystery 2 falls on Netflix. We’ll be keeping track of everything you need to know about the upcoming sequel, including the plot, cast news, production updates, and the Netflix release date.

Murder Mystery 2 is an upcoming Netflix Original comedy film and the sequel to Netflix’s incredibly successful 2019 comedy, Murder Mystery. Jeremy Garelick replaces Kyle Newacheck as project director, but James Vanderbilt has returned to write the sequel.

Murder Mystery is one of Netflix’s most successful originals, thanks to an audience of over 83 million households. Yes Murder Mystery 2 was to replicate even half of its predecessor’s success, we suspect Netflix will be incredibly happy.


What is the production status of Murder Mystery 2?

Official Production Status: Hawaii Unit Shooting Planned (Last Updated: 11/18/2021)

Thanks to the information listed in issue 1273 of Production Weekly, we now have a shooting date for the Hawaiian unit of Murder Mystery 2. Filming is currently scheduled for Honolulu, Hawaii, from January 10, 2022 to February 5, 2022.

As of this writing, no filming date has been confirmed for Paris, France. With the current issue of the global pandemic, all filming dates in Europe will be tentative at best until production can proceed with the safety of the cast and crew.

As with the first film, production will be handled by Adam Sandler’s own production, Happy Madison Productions.


What is the plot of Murder Mystery 2?

At the time of writing, no plot details have been revealed for Murder Mystery 2. We plan to learn a brief plot synopsis once filming begins in January 2022.


Who are the actors of Murder Mystery 2?

So far, only Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston have been confirmed to reprise their roles as Nick and Audrey Spitz.

We think we’ll learn more about the cast in the coming weeks. However, we may not receive a casting update until filming begins.

Sandler has had an extensive and lucrative relationship with Netflix. Of the eleven collaborations between Netflix and his production company, Happy Madison Productions, Sandler will have starred in a total of nine films by that time. Murder Mystery 2 falls on Netflix.

If you include Uncut Gems, which is a Netflix Original outside of the United States, then Sandler will have starred in ten original films for Netflix.


When can we expect to see Murder Mystery 2 on Netflix?

With filming currently slated for Q1 2022, we’d be incredibly lucky to see the feature hit Netflix before the end of 2022. A more realistic release date would be Q1 2023.

However, we cannot rule out the possibility of a late 2022 release date as the film could feature in Netflix’s Christmas / Winter lineup.
