Unlike many of our favorite true-crime shows, Only Murders in the Building features a cast of podcast hosts who find themselves at the center of an investigation. Comedic legends Steve Martin and Martin Short star in the show, which is Netflix’s most-watched original comedic series ever, as residents of a luxurious Manhattan building who investigate the murder of their neighbor. It was a blessing for fans, but a curse for the residents of Aronian, who were already dealing with another murder. Mabel (Gomez) was found bloodied and hunched over the body of the building’s top board member, Bunny, by Charles (Martin) and Oliver (Short) in the season 1 finale (Jayne Houdyshell). So far, here’s what we know about the upcoming case in the popular sitcom.

Only Murders In The Building: Season One Recap
They’ve decided to extend their stay at Arconia, even though there have been several murders in the building. At the very least, we hope that rent will decrease. Hulu’s most-watched original comedy on premiere day has been a resounding success for the show since its inception. Gomez, Martin, and Short star as a trio of true-crime enthusiasts who launch a podcast to investigate a murder in their Upper West Side building, only to be drawn into the investigation by their unexpected ties to the crime. Along with having a better coat collection than HBO’s The Undoing, the show has proven to be a reliable source of lighthearted entertainment in what can be an otherwise depressing genre. OMB has been renewed for a second season by Hulu, so it’s no surprise.
From the moment [co-creator Dan Fogelman] met Steve and learned he had an idea for a TV show, to the moment [co-creator and executive producer John Hoffman] jumped on board to help co-create the show, to the moment Steve agreed to star in the show only if Marty joined him, to the moment Selena was brought on board, everything about this project has felt almost fated from the beginning,” said Karey Burke, president of 20th Television. There has been a lot of focus on the comedy this team produced, with Hulu treating it like the prized possession that it is. A complete rundown of what we know so far about this potential next investigation is provided below.
Who Will Be The Cast In Only Murders In The Building Season 2?
Short, Martin, and Gomez are all returning to reprise their roles. Gomez took to Instagram following Hulu’s season 2 announcement to express her excitement for the upcoming season. Martin and Short don’t have Instagram, but we can assume they’re just as excited as Gomez’s character, Mabel, because they’re “olds.” Cara Delevingne, best known for her roles in Paper Towns and Suicide Squad, has been cast as Alice, a “sophisticated art world insider who becomes enmeshed in the mystery,” in season 2, Variety reported on December 1, 2021.
Mabel’s love interest, Alice, “puts Mabel in touch with a side of herself she’s been somewhat neglecting since the show began,” Vanity Fair reported on May 5. The friendship between Gomez and Delevingne contributed to their on-screen chemistry. Showrunner John Hoffman said it was “amazing to have the two of them know each other and feel comfortable.” There’s a certain joie de vivre to it that makes you feel like someone has opened your eyes to something new.
“Most like me than any other character I have ever played, but with some more daring looks, for sure,” Delevingne said to ELLE.com about the character’s style. It wasn’t long before Andrea Martin from My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Annie’s Zoe Colletti joined the cast as unannounced characters. According to Vanity Fair, Amy Schumer portrays herself as a new Arconia resident subletting Sting’s season one apartment. Jan’s “self-obsessed character expresses interest in adapting the Only Murders podcast for the screen—she wants to star in a feminist antihero version told from the viewpoint of Jan,” according to VF; she needs to clear Charles, Oliver, and Mabel’s names first.
For the second season of the show, Shirley MacLaine plays Bunny’s mother, who has an “exciting” character arc, according to Hoffman. Season 1 Arconia residents Uma (Jackie Hoffman) and cat-lover Howard will have more screen time this season (Michael Cyril Creighton). Bunny’s voice actress, Jayne Houdyshell, will appear in flashbacks.

When Will The Second Season Of Only Murders In The Building Air?
Make a note of the date: Tuesday, June 28th marks the return of Only Murders in the Building to Hulu. Watch the hilarious video below to see how Gomez, Martin, and Short announced their date. This video was taken from YouTube and imported. It is possible to find the same information in a different format, or additional information, on the website. Season 2 will begin filming by the end of 2021, according to co-creator Hoffman.
What Will The Next Chapter Be About?
The official season two synopsis has been released by Hulu:
Following the shocking death of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger, Charles, Oliver & Mabel race to unmask her killer. However, three (unfortunate) complications ensue—the trio is publicly implicated in Bunny’s homicide, they are now the subjects of a competing podcast, and they have to deal with a bunch of New York neighbors who all think they committed murder.
For those of us who watched the season finale, we were left wondering what season 2 would hold. After killing Tim Kono in a jealous rage, Jan, Charles’ girlfriend, poisoned himself in a fit of rage. Fortunately, Charles flops around the building long enough for Mabel and Oliver to notice him, and the three of them work together to arrest Jan. Mabel is found in her apartment, kneeling in front of a corpse, after the fire alarm goes off in the Arconia, and Charles and Oliver rush down the stairs to find her.
Is she telling the truth when she tells her friends, “It’s not what you think?” Surely, this isn’t Mabel’s first time manipulating the facts. Still, it seems like a stretch for a fan favorite to turn into a cold-blooded killer. A more nefarious force may be at work, but we won’t know for sure until season 2 begins filming.
Only Murders co-creator John Hoffman told Deadline, “Our trio is in the hot seat at the end of season 1.” In the days leading up to what happens at the end of the season, they have to deal with their relationship with Bunny, and a lot has happened… Season 1’s end and the beginning of Season 2 have a lot to do with what we’ll see in Season 3. It gets more difficult and more enjoyable in unexpected ways. As a result, they’re under even more pressure to solve the case.”
In a subsequent interview with ELLE in October 2021, Hoffman stated, “We do have a good solid track for season 2.” Hoffman said. In a month, we’ll begin filming. That’s what’s been going on for the past few weeks, and we’re now about halfway through the scripts. This season, according to Vanity Fair’s first look, is a lot like season 1 of Only Murders in the Building, in that Charles, Mabel, and Oliver are all trying to figure out how to make season 2 of their podcast worthy successor to season 1.
In contrast, our protagonists are simultaneously dealing with a murder investigation and their newfound internet fame. Why not take advantage of this weird New York–famous moment, where you’re on the front pages, to clear your name?” Hoffman revealed this to VF. Season 3 is expected to explore the characters in greater depth. Charles’s childhood is linked to the Arconia’s fascinating history, which is revealed by Bunny’s death,” VF reports. Charles and his father will also appear in flashbacks.
Is There A Trailer Yet?
On March 27, the teaser trailer was unveiled during the Oscars red carpet broadcast. Charles, Oliver, and Mabel are seen together again in the footage, and the mystery surrounding Bunny’s death is addressed. This isn’t going to be an easy transition for Only Murders in the Building, Mabel explains.
This video was taken from YouTube and imported. It is possible to find the same information in a different format, or additional information, on the website. It was revealed on May 17 that Charles, Oliver, and Mabel are coping after being “framed” for Bunny’s murder in an official teaser. Shenanigans erupt as they try to uncover the real killer (with more celebrity cameos too). This video was taken from YouTube and imported. It is possible to find the same information in a different format, or additional information, on the website.
Is There Going To Be A Third Season? “I hope so,” Hoffman said at ELLE’s Twitter Spaces event. There will be a lot more going on in season 2—not to give too much away, but there will be a lot more going on in their stories.” An interesting story can quickly become a front-page story in New York. So the podcast and their personal lives are expanding at a rapid pace. The show could potentially go beyond the building in future seasons, and I believe that there’s something in there that could help us do that.” “A hook for a possible season three that the writers already have in place,” Vanity Fair reported on May 5, though the show hasn’t been renewed yet.
