‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 3: Disney+/Hulu Release Date Estimate

Only Murders in the Building season 2 wrapped up with a head-scratching cliffhanger and the lifeless body of Ben Glenroy on stage. So it’s only natural that the fans are desperately waiting for the release of season 3 of this acclaimed comedy/mystery thriller. 

With almost a quarter of 2023 behind us, the question on everybody’s mind is when will the third season of Only Murders in the Building air on Hulu and Disney+.

Let’s take a look at everything we know about the upcoming season of Only Murders in the Building, along with a release date estimate.

Will There Be An ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 3?

Yes! Fans can breathe a sigh of relief because the third season was officially renewed in July 2022.

“‘Only Murders in the Building’ is the true crown jewel of our slate,” said Craig Erwich, president of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment. “Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan, John, Steve, Marty and Selena’s work. We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story.”

Filming for the new season began early this year, commemorated by a selfie by Steve Martin featuring the main cast.

‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 3 Release Date

Now to the real question that everybody’s asking: What’s the release date for the third season of Only Murders in the Building?

Despite the anticipation, Disney hasn’t given an exact release date for when the third season is coming to Hulu or Disney+. But we can certainly speculate a release period based on the previous seasons.

Selena Gomez revealed that Season 3 officially wrapped filming on April 21, 2023.

Assuming that a few months are needed for post production, along with the first season being released in August of 2021, and the second in June 2022, we expect a late summer or early fall release for season 3

We’ll be sure to update this article the moment we hear some official news from Disney/Hulu.

What Will Happen In ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 3?

According to Deadline, Season 3 will step outside the comforts of home as they follow the latest murder, that of Ben Glenroy (Rudd), the lead actor in Oliver Putnam’s (Short) Broadway play who falls dead on stage just as the curtain flew up signaling the show to begin

The season will most likely shed some light on the backstories of our beloved sleuths. And it seems that there have been talks of Mabel getting married as well?!?

In any case, the real question is who’s the killer behind the Ben Glenroy Case? Why did Charles threaten Glenroy, and did he have to do anything with Glenroy’s death? What could the lead actor of Oliver’s new play have done to infuriate Charles so much? Our guess is that it has something to do with Mabel, but only time will tell.
