Season 3 of Murders in the Building is the only show to have expanded beyond the Arconia and onto Broadway. The three played by Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez will return for another round of the mockumentary true crime series’ murder investigation.
Paul Rudd, who made a surprise appearance at the end of the season 2 finale as actor Ben Glenroy, will join them.
A veteran actor, a failed Broadway director, and a directionless young woman form an unusual trio in Only Murders in the Building. Season one received 14 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series, and was Hulu’s most-watched original series ever.
At first, they looked into the murder of their next-door neighbor Tim Kono. The three then set out to exonerate themselves from suspicion in the death of Bunny Folger, president of the building’s governing board.
They move ahead a year, but then they are involved in another murder that has personal ties to one of them. Here is everything we know about Season 3 of Only Murders in the Building at this time.
When Will Only Murders in the Building Season 3 Be Released on Hulu?
Season three of Only Murders in the Building is in the works, but no release date has been set as of yet.
Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment President Craig Erwich made the announcement, and he had this to say about Only Murders in the Building: “Only Murders in the Building is a true crown jewel of our slate. Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament of 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.”
The crew behind this comedy-drama may have a quicker turnaround than usual, but a precise release date has not been announced as yet. The first season aired from August to October 2021, and the second from June to August 2022. The release date is yet to be announced.
Only Murders in the Building Season 3 would likely return in 2023 according to usmagazine.
Who Will Return in Season 3?
Hulu has not yet confirmed the series’ full cast, but we can assume that our favorite characters will return for more secrets and mayhem. That is to say, we may look forward to further appearances from Steve Martin (Charles), Martin Short (Oliver), and Selena Gomez (Mabel).
Selena Gomez promises, “All of your favorite characters are going to be returning for season 3!” in the season 3 announcement video for Only Murders in the Building. That is to say, we anticipate further anarchy from recurring characters like Da’Vine Joy Randolph’s Detective Williams and Tina Fey’s Cinda Canning.
In perhaps the most significant development, Paul Rudd‘s casting as actor Ben Glenroy in the upcoming third season has been officially confirmed. The murder of Ben will be the central plot point of the upcoming season.
John Hoffman, the show’s creator and executive producer, has told Variety that he hopes Harry Styles will join the ensemble. The man spoke thusly: “Harry Styles should be visiting the apartments in the Arconia. Why not?”
What Will Be the Storyline of Only Murders in the Building Season 3?
The main three characters would continue their investigation into the murder of Bunny and their investigation into the identity of the Glitter Guy throughout the third season.
Following a skip in time, Mabel, Charles, and Oliver find themselves embroiled in another murder. Next season, Mabel, Charles, and Oliver will have to solve another murder, although this time the body was found in a theatre on Broadway rather than in their own building.
The death of Rudd’s character, Ben Glenroy, takes place on the opening night of Oliver’s new Broadway production, which also stars Charles in the role Glenroy previously had.
The Only Murders Instagram account included the following text in the description of a photo promoting the third season of the show: “Now I just have to worry about who’s next… I hope it’s not me!” … I guess we’ll just have to sit tight and see what happens!
How Will the Investigation Into Ben’s Murder Proceed?
“I’m about six weeks into writing with the room for Season 3, and what we have planned is insane and so exciting. It’s also very twisty,” Hoffman told TV Line in August 2022. “We try to check ourselves, like, ‘OK, what can we do and how can we do this differently?’ and ‘What feels like a different take? A fresh take?’ So I can only say hang tight! There’s a lot going on, and certainly, the victim is colorfully drawn so far.”
