A few weeks ago, Selena Gomez announced the completion of filming for Season 3 of the popular series “Only Murders in the Building,” but Disney/Hulu did not disclose any official release details.
During the recent stop of Steve Martin and Martin Short’s “You Won’t Believe What They Look Like Today!” tour in Orlando, Florida, Variety verified from multiple attendees that Martin revealed the release date for Season 3 of “Only Murders in the Building” as August 8th, 2023.
Martin stated “Catch the new season August 8th”.
An August premiere for Season 3 will take the new episodes into the fall.
“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.
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.
Cast for Season 3 includes Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, as well as Meryl Streep, Paul Rudd, Jesse Williams, Ashley Park, Jeremy Shamos, Linda Emond, Wesley Taylor, Don Darryl Rivera (Let the Right One In), Allison Guinn (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and Gerald Caesarto (Dear Evan Hansen).
Seasons 1-2 of “Only Murders in the Building” are available to stream now on Hulu in the US and Disney+ internationally, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
