According to Deadline, the Netflix gods have answered all our prayers and have officially signed on to produce a Murder Mystery sequel. And with Hollywood legend Jeremy Garelick set to direct? We've got a feeling we're in for a real treat here. Not only is the A-list director the mastermind behind gems like The Break-Up and The Wedding Ringer, but he'll also be helping with the script for this future project.

As for what to expect - aside from a whole lot of laughs and "whodunit"s? While the project is still in the early stages of production, both Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are allegedly set to return to the big screen in the upcoming comedy. Will they still be traveling across the world aboard the Orient Express? We guess we'll have to wait and find out.

In case you forgot, Murder Mystery saw Sandler and Aniston as a happy couple vacationing aboard a dreamy yacht. That is, until they became framed for the murder of another passenger, an elderly rich guy. And while we won't tell you how that mystery ends (spoiler-free zone here), we will say that if you haven't already seen it? Add it to your watch list asap before we tag along on their latest adventure.

But this actually isn't the first time the Hollywood legends got into trouble on our screens together. Back in 2011, Sandler and Aniston starred as coworkers turned fake-spouses turned spouses (complicated, we know) as they starred in the hit comedy Just Go With It. Safe to say, their on-screen chemistry is undeniable, and we can't wait to watch them back in action in the near future.

Until then, stay tuned. (And feel free to check out these other Netflix best comedies streaming right now!)
