Only Murders in the BuildingHulu

Only Murders in the Building Season 3 is on the way, so here’s everything we know so far, from any release date information to trailer, cast, plot, and other details.

Only Murders in the Building Season 2 reached its conclusion on Disney+ just a few months ago. The series follows three unlikely friends Charles, Oliver, and Mabel – played by Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez respectively – who live in the prestigious Arconia building, as they attempt to solve the mystery of their neighbor’s death, with the second season having them framed for another murder.

The first two seasons of Only Murders have served many twists and turns, while simultaneously managing to come to a satisfying conclusion, and the show overall has been unanimously loved by critics and viewers alike.

The gang is back, could thus honestly get any better? Oh wait….”

The camera then cut to acting legend Meryl Streep, who popped her head out from behind the coach. Gomez captioned the tiktok “meet our new and old crew! Excuse me while I scream in a pillow.” At the time of writing, the video has already garnered over 2 million views despite only having been posted less than half a day ago.

Only Murders in the Building Season 3 plot: What will happen next season?

Sadly, there is currently no official plot for Only Murders in the Building Season 3.

It’s likely that we won’t get much information about the plot regardless, since the show is of the mystery genre. But there are things that we can expect.

The last episode ended on a cliff-hanger, with Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd) dying onstage in front of all our main cast. Therefore, we can imagine that the third season will cover what led to this series of events, as well as the creation of the golden trio’s podcast, which discusses each murder. Not only that, but Glenroy and Charles clearly had a vendetta with one another, so that will likely play into everything.

Although, we can perhaps expect this season to dive into Oliver, as the previous two seasons had Mabel and Charles’ past play into the grander mystery. And since this third season murder happens at one of Oliver’s shows, this season could be focusing more on him.

This was even suggested by showrunner John Hoffman. In an interview with Slash Film, Hoffman stated that for Season 3 they were eager to lean “towards Oliver Putnam and the world of theatrics, and his wishes and dreams to regain a reputation after his debacle with Splash!”
