Adam Sandler & Jennifer Aniston Return For Murder Mystery 2

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are expected to return for Murder Mystery 2. Starring Sandler and Aniston, Murder Mystery is one of several Sandler-produced films available exclusively on Netflix. Set in the same vein of a whodunit mystery as Clue and Knives Out, Murder Mystery was released in June of 2019 and set a new streaming record for Netflix’s original movies.

Directed by Kyle Newacheck, Murder Mystery follows Nick (Sandler) and Audrey (Aniston), a married couple whose passion and romance have been replaced with stale conversations and predictability. Attempting to rekindle the spark in their marriage, the couple takes a trip that results in a mysterious murder on a yacht. After being framed for the murder, Nick and Audry must unravel the clues, deal with outlandish characters, and solve the crime. Written by James Vanderbilt, Murder Mystery surpassed almost 31 million views in three days. A few months after Murder Mystery’s release, it was teased that a sequel was in the works. Now, it appears Sandler and Aniston will officially have a new murder case to solve.


Per Deadline, Sandler and Aniston are expected to return for Murder Mystery 2 with Jeremy Garelick attached to direct. Penned by Vanderbilt, the script for the sequel film is expected to receive a tune-up by Garelick. Director of The Wedding Ringer, Garelick wrote The Break-Up, which starred Aniston and Vince Vaughn. Reportedly, Murder Mystery 2 is on the fast-track for production and is expected to begin filming in Paris and the Caribbean later this Fall.

At this time, plot details for Murder Mystery 2 remain under wraps. However, it can be expected that the longtime married couple, who stumbled through clues in an attempt to clear their names in Murder Mystery, will be faced with a new level of sleuthing and detective work in the sequel. Of course, with Murder Mystery 2 being placed on the fast track, the film could release in June of 2022 in a nod to the original film’s release date and be a high priority for Netflix’s summer catalog.

Ending on a cautiously closed note, Murder Mystery’s stellar ratings and star power certainly paved the way for a sequel – possibly even a trilogy – featuring Sandler and Aniston’s married couple. Clocking in at a comfortable 97 minutes, Murder Mystery delivered the perfect, breezy watch and left audiences wanting more. For now, it’s expected that Sandler and Aniston will grace the small screen soon in the highly anticipated Murder Mystery 2.
