Actress Drew Barrymore has revealed in a recent interview that a sequel to the beloved comedy ‘Happy Gilmore‘ is currently in the works, following discussions with her longtime friend and co-star Adam Sandler.

Barrymore’s excitement was ignited after Kevin Nealon, who portrayed Shooter McGavin in the original film, shared that Sandler had shown him a first draft of ‘Happy Gilmore 2’. Eager to confirm the news, Barrymore reached out to Sandler directly to inquire about the sequel.

During a preview of her appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Barrymore shared the details of the exchange, expressing her strong desire for the sequel. She even mentioned staying up late watching ‘Billy Madison‘ with her daughter and sending Sandler a video to convey her enthusiasm.

Following a commercial break on the show, Barrymore revealed that Sandler had confirmed the script for ‘Happy Gilmore 2’ is in the process of being developed, marking a significant development for fans of the original film.

The conversation echoes a recent revelation made by Kevin Nealon, who disclosed during a podcast appearance the exciting news of Sandler sharing the first draft with him. Nealon expressed his enthusiasm for a potential sequel and emphasized the demand from fans for a continuation of the story.

While both Netflix and a representative for Adam Sandler declined to comment on the potential sequel, Barrymore’s confirmation adds weight to the speculations surrounding ‘Happy Gilmore 2’ finally coming to fruition.

Adam Sandler himself addressed the leak of information about the sequel, humorously sharing that Kevin Nealon had inadvertently revealed the script details despite being urged to keep it under wraps. Sandler hinted at ongoing discussions surrounding the sequel during a recent comedy special, acknowledging the interest in revisiting the popular character.

Despite the lack of specific details about the plot or release timeline, the news about ‘Happy Gilmore 2’ has sparked excitement among fans and the entertainment industry alike, reigniting hopes of witnessing Sandler reprise his iconic role. The potential sequel marks a significant development since director Dennis Dugan expressed skepticism about the possibility back in 2015.
