Following the film's successful launch, a sequel was officially announced by Netflix last September, and Aniston and Sandler will reprise their roles in Murder Mystery 2.

Helmed by Kyle Newacheck, Murder Mystery follows Nick Spitz (Adam Sandler) and Audrey Spitz's (Jennifer Aniston) attempt to reinvent the spark of their marriage but eventually leads them to be framed for the murder of an elderly billionaire.
