*Spoilers for season 2 of Only Murders In The Building below!*
Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building officially wrapped up its second season in August 2022, but the true-crime podcast trio is poised to solve some new (!!) murder mysteries at The Arconia. In July 2022, Deadline reported that the series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez has been renewed for a third season.
The show’s official account also shared the exciting news on its social media pages. Alongside a video of a group text between Charles, Oliver, and Mabel, the post read, “My neighbors have a special message for you all: #OnlyMurdersInTheBuilding will return for Season 3! Now I just have to worry about who’s next… I hope it’s not me!”
Season 2 ended with a cliffhanger hinting at whose death Charles, Oliver, and Mabel may be investigating, but further details have not been confirmed. Fear not. We’re here to keep you updated on all the details of the new season from casting to release date and trailers. Ahead, everything we know so far about Only Murders in the Building season 3.
There’s no word yet on when season 3 of OMITB will premiere. But we know that season 1 was released on August 31, 2021, and season 2 premiered less than a year later, on June 28, 2022. If the filming schedule for season 3 remains somewhat similar to that of previous installments, it’s likely that we only have to wait until this summer for it to debut.
Yes! Our sleuths are sleuthing over at The Arconia, which means we’re one step closer to season 3’s premiere. On January 18, 2023, Selena was seen on set of the Hulu series, dressed in a chic pinstripe jacket, suit, and pumps, per photos obtained by Daily Mail UK. The star accessorized the sophisticated look with a stylish puffer bag. Her co-stars, Steve Martin and Martin Short, were also spotted on set in character, with Charles’s signature fedora in tow.
According to an announcement made on the OMITB social media accounts, “all of our favorite characters” will return in the third season. So the crime-solving trio, aka Charles, Oliver, and Mabel, will grace our screens once again.
On January 17, 2023, Selena announced a major (!) new addition. In a TikTok with the OMITB gang, the actress panned to castmates Steve Martin, Martin Short, Paul Rudd, and Andrea Martin — before landing on Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep (!!) and OMG. “Can this honestly get any better?,” Selena asks. “Well, I do think it can get a little bit better,” Paul adds as Meryl appears behind Steve, Martin, and Selena. Iconic. There are no details on Meryl’s role just yet, but you already know we’ll be on the lookout for more info regarding her involvement with the series.
Meanwhile, Paul will reprise his role as Broadway star Ben Glenroy after making a cameo in the season 2 finale, “I Know Who Did It,” according to Variety.
“Paul Rudd, after making an auspicious entrance into the world of our show at the end of Season 2 as Ben Glenroy, is someone we clearly want to know more about and see in our upcoming Season 3 — as he is a clear source of many upcoming questions and, as ever with our show, many twists yet to come!,” showrunner John Hoffman shared with the outlet.
But wait — there’s *another* famous face making its way into The Arconia. Tony Award-winning actor Jesse Williams joins the cast of Only Murders for season 3. According to Deadline, the former Grey’s Anatomy star will “play a documentarian with a particular interest in the case” that Mabel, Charles, and Oliver are working on.
The sophomore season of OMITB revolved around the killing of Arconia building manager Bunny Folger, and although we know now who her murderer was, the final scenes of the show spell out a whole new murder mystery for season 3.
Much like the setup for season 2’s storyline, the introduction to season 3’s plot occurs in the final minute of the finale episode. Paul Rudd’s character, Ben, collapses on stage, bleeding from his mouth, and is presumed dead — and just minutes before the curtains lifted, he and Charles were in a tense exchange, where Charles declared, “Stay away from her” and “I know what you did.” Who is Charles referring to? What does he know? All of these questions remain as we wait for the next chapter to unfold.
Selena dropped a cryptic post on Instagram that had fans speculating (and freaking out) in the comments. The first photo featured Selena’s blonde hair as she faced away from the camera, and the second photo showed a manicured hand pointing to a message on a pair of sweatpants that read “Thank You For Asking About My Mental Health.” Selena simply captioned the photo “3,” to which the official OMITB account responded, “3️⃣!!!”
“3 MINUTES TIL YOU ANNOUNCE THE ALBUM???” freaked out one fan, while another wrote, “3 WHAT?!”
The official Hulu account also posted a black and white photo of the all-star cast — Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Paul Rudd, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. That’s a stacked line-up if we’ve ever seen one.
No, there’s no trailer just yet. But be sure to check back here, and we’ll update you as soon as new clues drop.
