People are flocking to social media in excitement over Netflix's announcement of the release dates for Murder Mystery 2 and Extraction 2.

If you've already binge-watched your way through Kaleidoscope and Wednesday, then fear not, because more Netflix bangers are heading your way.

What better way to get through the rest of a cold, bleak and rather frosty January than to know you'll be getting to see a whole lot more of the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, as well as Golshifteh Farahani and Chris Hemsworth on your screen?

The first Murder Mystery - directed by Kyle Newacheck - came out in 2019 and saw Sandler and Aniston star as a New York cop and his hairdresser wife - the pair unintentionally becoming embroiled in a baffling murder on a billionaire's yacht.

Extraction - released in 2020 - is a gripping action thriller which sees a mercenary sent to Bangladesh to rescue a drug lord's kidnapped son.

The official synopsis for Murder Mystery 2 reads: "Struggling as full-time detectives, Nick & Audrey Spitz find themselves at the center of an international abduction when their friend the Maharaja is kidnapped at his own wedding."

Upon announcing the release date for Extraction 2, Netflix wrote: "Chris Hemsworth returns as Tyler Rake in Extraction 2, the sequel to Netflix's blockbuster action film Extraction.

"After barely surviving the events of the first movie, Rake is back as the Australian black ops mercenary, tasked with another deadly mission: rescuing the battered family of a ruthless Georgian gangster from the prison where they are being held."

Murder Mystery 2 is set for release onto the streaming service on 31 March and you'll be able to watch Extraction 2 on 16 June.
