Hot off its second season on Hulu, Only Murders in the Building will be returning for a third season the Disney-owned streamer confirmed today.
Season one of the series quickly became Hulu’s most-watched comedy series in Hulu Originals’ history. The series is a heavy favorite in several categories, going into tomorrow’s Emmy nominations. Season two, which stars Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez is still ongoing and new episodes release every Tuesday.
“Only Murders in the Building is the true crown jewel of our slate. Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan, John, Steve, Marty and Selena’s work. We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story.”Craig Erwich, President, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment
Amy Ryan, Nathan Lane, and Aaron Dominguez also return from the hit first season. Other newcomers to the series include Cara Delevingne, Amy Schumer, Michael Rapaport, and Shirley MacLaine. Paul Rudd was spotted on set earlier this year leading many to believe he has a potential cameo, maybe something to the degree of Tina Fey in the first season.
Disney’s 20th Television produces Only Murders in the Building. Martin and John Hoffman co-created the series and executive produce with Short, Gomez, Jamie Babbitt, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman (who has a rich overall deal at 20th), and Jess Rosenthal.
