‘Only Murders In The Building’ Season 3: Release Date, Cast, News

*Spoilers ahead*

The game is afoot — the Only Murders in the Building sleuths plan to return for season 3 with seemingly even more twists in store.

It may be case closed for season 2 of the charming whodunnit comedy, but it’s just the start of another killer follow-up for true crime obsessives Charles (Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short) and Mabel (Selena Gomez). With the death of Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell) solved, the unlikely trio can’t catch a break as the strange murder of a new character sends the investigation in a whole new direction.

Despite the Hulu original’s latest installment just wrapping, fans of the show are already curious about what’s next — we’re one step ahead. Here are all the clues we’ve dug up around Only Murders in the Building season 3:

Will there be a season 3 of Only Murders in the Building?

One mystery’s solved: Only Murders in the Building season 3 is officially next in the lineup. The renewal news came just three episodes into season 2, with Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment president Craig Erwich calling it the “true crown jewel of our slate.”

He said in a statement: “Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan [Fogelman], John [Hoffman], 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.”

It may come as no surprise deduction since the trio previously hinted at season 3 on TikTok. Selena, Martin and Steve raised a cheers to “a great season 2,” with Steve saying, “to a great season 3.” This prompted surprised oh’s from Selena and Martin. “Well, next year,” Steve added as Selena replied, “Hopefully.” Ask and you shall receive!

How many episodes are in Only Murders in the Building season 3? What is Only Murders in the Building season 3 the release date?

We’re still tailing leads, but season 1 and 2 each pack in 10 suspense-filled episodes.

When it comes to nailing down season 3’s release date, let the record show that season 1 premiered in August 2021 and season 2 debuted in June 2022. If our theories are correct, the thrilling comedy will return with a season 3 sometime in summer 2023.

Who will be in the Only Murders in the Building season 3 cast?

The Arconia’s been quite the revolving door for a slate of celebrity guest stars, including the likes of Sting, Tina Fey, Amy Schumer, Shirley MacLaine, Cara Delevingne and more. We expect the star-studded roster to grow with each season. But, it’s a murder mystery, after all. So, as of now, all evidence points to the usual suspects:

  • Selena Gomez as Mabel Mora
  • Steve Martin as Charles-Haden Savage
  • Martin Short as Oliver Putnam
  • Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Detective Williams

In a most grandiose entrance, Paul Rudd made a cameo in the season 2 finale as the star of Oliver’s play, Ben Glenroy. Though his curtain call came abruptly (a nasty onstage death by poison), we can expect this mystery to trail into Only Murders in the Building season 3.

As we speculate whether Paul will reappear as a series regular or a fleeting guest star, the series co-creator John Hoffman assured Variety he’s “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!”

What will Only Murders in the Building season 3 be about?

Get your red push pins and detective hats ready. The creators revealed that the upcoming season plans to shift focus toward Oliver, which season 2 already tiptoed toward with the one-year jump forward to Oliver’s Broadway directorial debut.

John explained to The Hollywood Reporter: “If season 1 was a little more focused on the emotional storyline for Mabel and Tim Kono, and season two was a little more emotionally connected to Charles and his relationship with his father and himself, I’m very excited to both lean into the theatrical side of New York City and also into Oliver and his world.”

As of August 23, 2022, the show’s writers are already six weeks into writing for season 3, with promises of an “insane” and “so exciting” season ahead. “It’s also very twisty,” John admitted to TVLine. “We try to check ourselves, like, ‘OK, what can we do and how can we do this differently?’ and ‘What feels like a different take? A fresh take?'”

He added: “So I can only say hang tight! There’s a lot going on, and certainly, the victim is colorfully drawn so far.”
