Murder mystery. Hardy Boys. Sting. True crime podcasts. Only Murders in the Building has it all and if you haven’t watched it yet, you absolutely must. It’s comedy gold with a gripping murder mystery at the center and a whole lot of heart which quickly became my comfort show last year.
Martin Short and Steve Martin are unbelievably funny and Selena Gomez holds her own against the comedy stalwarts. The three portray residents of an apartment building who form an unlikely bond over their obsession for true crime podcasts and ultimately get together to solve a murder.
If you already adore the show and the trio’s silly shenanigans you’ll be happy to know that the breezy mystery-comedy is returning very soon. Hulu has dropped a new trailer earlier today featuring the return of the three amateur detectives, some delightful new faces and a meta wink to season two.
Everything we know about season 2
Much like season 1, a brand new murder is afoot only this time it’s the lead trio who have been accused of the crime. The trailer also teases a secret tunnel in Arconia along with the return of [Spoiler] Tim Kono’s killer, Jan.
Aside from the main three, guest stars include Amy Schumer and Academy Award winner Shirley MacLaine. Cara Delevingne will also feature as Mabel’s rumoured love interest with Steve Martin and John Hoffman returning as the series creators. Season 2 will follow the sleuths as they try to unmask the killer of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger.
Only Murders in the Building season 2 is set to debut on Hulu on June 28. You can stream it on Disney Plus in Australia.
Prepare to get sleuthing!
