Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler are coming to Netflix to solve another murder mystery along with the new roster of cast members. Murder Mystery was an enormous hit on Netflix with views from 83 million households in the first 28 days and it became the fifth most-viewed film on Netflix. Now, the streaming giant is back with a sequel, which will be filmed in Hawaii, Paris, and the Caribbean. Here’s everything you need to know about Netflix’s Murder Mystery 2.

Why Netflix Is Making Murder Mystery 2

After Murder Mystery was a huge hit on Netflix, the streaming giant announced the sequel film back in October 2019, just after a few days of the release of the film. Over the years, Netflix has offered films like The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, and Hubie Halloween, but none of them have the same effect on the audience as Murder Mystery. Moreover, the idea of seeing Hollywood’s favorite, Jennifer Anniston also drew in viewers to the first movie. Hence, it makes sense that the streaming platforms is working on a sequel.

Netflix still hasn’t announced a release date for Murder Mystery 2. Moreover, the film has just started its filming and production in Oahu, Hawaii, in January 2022. Thus, it will take some time to complete the shoot.
