TV fans are eager to know the Murder Mystery 2 release date, following the huge success of the first film in 2019.

In the original Murder Mystery, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston played a cop and a hairdresser respectively and, while on a holiday intended to fix their marriage, find themselves framed for murder. Four years later, the duo are returning as full-time detectives embarking on yet another mystery solving excursion - this time instead of Monte Carlo, Murder Mystery 2 filmed in two different, but equally iconic locations.  

The Murder mystery 2 release date announcement comes not long after that of another popular Netflix show, You season 4, while fans of Netflix dramas have also been asking where is Treason filmed and has Dead to Me been cancelled. So, if you're looking for your next detective story with plenty of humour involved too, then you'll probably want to know when Murder Mystery 2 is coming out...

Murder Mystery 2 release date

Murder Mystery 2 will premiere on Netflix on Friday 31 March. It is the sequel to the 2019 movie Murder Mystery, which is one of Netflix's most successful originals ever, with over 30 million account holders watching it in the first three days of release.

Filming for the sequel took place in 2022 and wrapped up in April, and we know that the locations used for filming include Hawaii and Paris. Since then, production has been handled by Adam Sandler's company, Happy Madison Productions, and the release date for the film was announced on 30 January 2023.
