Netflix has officially announced that a sequel to the 1996 golf comedy "Happy Gilmore" is in development, with Adam Sandler confirmed to reprise his role as the title character. The announcement was part of the streaming service's presentation of its upcoming films for 2024 and 2025. Although no specific release date has been set, it is anticipated to premiere within that timeframe.
