Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are also in talks of reprising their roles, but no deal has been closed just yet.
Murder Mystery premeired on Netflix in June 2019. The plot revolves around a married bickering couple who go on a European vacation in an attempt to save their stagnant marriage. While on vacation, the two end up in the middle of an Agatha Christie-like murder plot, with them eyed as suspects.
