Michael Rapaport has joined the cast of “Only Murders in the Building” Season 2. Rapaport will have a recurring role and star opposite Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.
According to Deadline, Rapaport will play Detective Kreps, a police detective involved in the new murder case introduced in the Season 1 finale.
“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 in December.
Cara Delevingne has joined the cast for the second season as Alice, ”a sophisticated art world insider who becomes enmeshed in the mystery.“ It was also recently revealed Season 2 will feature appearances by Shirley MacLaine and Amy Schumer, and that Nathan Lane’s Teddy Dimas will, in fact, be returning.
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.

Rapaport can be seen next in Amy Schumer’s upcoming Hulu comedy series Life & Beth. He previously starred on Netflix’s Atypical for all four seasons and has been a regular guest host on The Wendy Williams Show this season.
