Season 2 of “Only Murders in the Building,” the hit original comedy series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, officially started filming last week.
Nathan Lane, who played Teddy Dimas in Season 1 of the series recently gave an interview with Deadline during a TCA panel about the possibility of his character and Dimas’ son Theo (James Caverly) returning in the second season. “We don’t know,” Lane said. “We’re not allowed to say under pain of death. Send those cards and letters that you want to see more of the Dimas’. In fact, a Dimas spinoff would really be spectacular.”
Lane also added, “I had a great time, in particular, working with James. He’s a really gifted young actor and he really knocked it out of the park with his performance. Yes, I would be thrilled to go back and, you know, when the Dimas’ seek revenge.”
Last week, it was announced 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.“
“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 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.
