Happy Gilmore sequel with Adam Sandler, new Will Ferrell golf series in works at Netflix

Netflix is doubling down on golf comedy with a sequel to the 1990s classic Happy Gilmore and a new television show starring Will Ferrell.

On Wednesday, the streamer confirmed that Adam Sandler will return as the raucous professional golfer Happy Gilmore in a new movie. The golf comedy cemented Sandler as a bankable movie star with its 1996 debut.

While no talent and director are attached as of yet, actor Christopher McDonald, who played the conniving golfer Shooter McGavin in the original film, talked about the potential sequel earlier this year, hinting at his involvement.

Meanwhile, Ferrell will star in a new Netflix comedy series titled GOLF, where he will play a legendary fictional golfer. Ramy Youssef (Poor Things) will co-star on the series and is credited as a co-creator with Ferrell and Josh Rabinowitz.

While no release date is planned for either project, it’s possible both projects will go into production this year and will hit the green sometime in 2025.
