Martin Short earned his first SAG Award nomination this morning for his role in the Hulu/Star Original “‘Only Murders In The Building.” Short also took the time to reveal that Season 2 of the hit comedy series will feature appearances by Shirley MacLaine and Amy Schumer, and that Nathan Lane’s Teddy Dimas will, in fact, be returning. You can see what Short said below:
“Before Christmas, [I shot scenes with] Shirley MacLaine and Amy Schumer,” he said. “The quality of actor that this show is attracting makes it endlessly fun to go to work.”
It was recently revealed that Cara Delevingne had joined the cast for the second season. Delevingne will have a recurring role as Alice, ”a sophisticated art world insider who becomes enmeshed in the mystery.“ Christine Ko and David Letterman are rumored to appear in the second season as well.
“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.
Season 2 will follow the trio in a new mystery as they try to unravel who killed fellow Arconia resident Bunny, in order to clear their names. The second season officially started filming last month.
The series streams on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and on Disney+ in all other territories, including Europe. The series has proven to be incredibly popular with audiences and critics alike and became Hulu’s most-watched comedy premiere.
“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.
