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 Stage of Production is Murder Mystery 2 in?
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.
Who Plays What Roles in Murder Mystery 2?
It has been reported that Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston will reprise their parts as Nick and Audrey Spitz.
Sandler has starred in ten Netflix Original movies if you including Uncut Gems, which is a Netflix Original outside of the US.
Murder Mystery 2’s new cast members are;
- John Kani as Colonel Ulenga
- Adeel Akhtar as The Maharajah
- Mark Strong
- Melanie Laurent
- Jodie Turner-Smith
- Kuhoo Verma
- Enrique Arce
- Tony Goldwyn
John Kani is well-known to MCU viewers due to his brief appearance in the series as King T’Chaka, T’Challa’s father.
Adeel Akhtar most recently appeared on Netflix in the character of Detective Lestrade in Enola Holmes, and he will return in Enola Holmes 2. In the British comedy Four Lions and the cult hit Utopia, Akhtar was a crowd favorite.
Although the roles of the remaining cast members have not yet been made public, we anticipate that actors like Mark Strong, Melania Laurent, and Jodie Turner-Smith will deliver fantastic and humorous performances.
When Will Netflix Premiere Murder Mystery 2?
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.
