Season 2 of “Only Murders in the Building,” the hit original comedy series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, officially started filming earlier this month.
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.“ According to a new report from The Illuminerdi, we may also know who else will make appearances in Season 2.
The outlet claims that according to their sources “Only Murders In The Building” is interested in Murray Bartlett (Iron Fist, The White Lotus) to play the father of Steve Martin’s character Charles. It looks like the series will be exploring a bit more of Charles’ past in the new season with his father showing up in flashbacks.
They also revealed that the series is negotiating with Christine Ko (Dave, Upload) to play the new character Nina Kim. Nina is described as gorgeous, affluent, very pregnant, and powerful. Nina has a take no prisoners pragmatism in order to get what she desires. With Bunny gone, Nina is taking her chance to become the new Board President of the Arconia and she is willing to do whatever it takes. Nina’s desire to take Bunny’s position makes her a prime suspect for the trio’s new case.
Additionally, they shared that Hulu is eyeing David Letterman as the potential celebrity to make an undoubtedly hilarious cameo as himself. If Letterman does make an appearance as himself he would also be playing a new resident of the Arconia.
“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 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.
