Last month, it was announced that “Only Murders in the Building”, the hit original comedy series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez had been picked up for a second season. The show streams on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and on Disney+ in all other territories, including Europe.
“Only Murders in the Building” follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.
The series has proven to be incredibly popular with audiences and critics alike and became Hulu’s most-watched comedy premiere.
With the first season streaming its finale recently, many fans are wondering when Season 2 will be released. According to Co-Creator John Hoffman, season 2 will begin filming by the end of 2021, which means season 2 could arrive as early as mid-2022. You can read what Hoffman said during an interview with Queerty below:
“We do have a good solid track for season 2. We actually start shooting in a month. It’s going to be very exciting as the actors start arriving and everything else. We have been working with the writers for a few months now. With this show, you have to sort of build the mystery backwards to forward and twist our way to the resolve. So you have to know everything at the end first and hide things and twist your way there. That’s what we’ve been doing, and now we’re speeding our way through the scripts, and we’re about halfway through.”
“Only Murders in the Building” hails from co-creators and writers Steve Martin and John Hoffman (“Grace & Frankie,” “Looking”). Martin and Hoffman executive produce along with Martin Short, Selena Gomez, Jamie Babbitt, “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal.
