Only Murders in the Building has quickly become a fan-favorite series! We get it — Selena Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short make an iconic trio as murder mystery detectives. So, will the show be returning for season 3? Keep reading to find out!
Will There Be an ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 3?
In July 2022, just two weeks after the second season premiered, Hulu announced that Only Murders in the Building had been renewed for a third season!
Selena teased she would be back for a season 3 in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in June 2022 when she spoke about balancing her work-life schedule. “I finished season 2, I did my cooking show, and now I’m gonna be in the studio until season 3. So basically, we’re going to be just working on new music. Like I said, I couldn’t do one or the other. I actually love both,” the Disney Channel alum said.
Similarly, in a TikTok posted when they wrapped season 2, Selena toasts “to a great season two,” which Martin echoed. Steve then replied, “To a great season three … well … next year!”
What Can We Expect for ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 3?
One word: murder. And for the iconic trio to put on their detective hats once more!
Selena told Variety in December 2021 about the process of mapping out season 2 with series co-creator John Hoffman. John started mapping ideas out for season 2 toward the end of filming the first season, which wrapped with Selena’s character of Mabel leaning over another dead body before being arrested along with Charles (Steve) and Oliver (Martin).
“Another season was casually thrown around but then John started spewing these ideas out and sure enough they have come into fruition,” she explained. “When I was reading it, I was really, really shocked because this is so different, but it’s what makes the show so great. They did such a great job creating another story.”
During the season 2 finale, which aired in August 2022, a time jump showed a glimpse into how everyone’s lives changed since solving Bunny’s murder. It’s revealed that Ben Glenroy, played by Paul Rudd, is a victim of yet another murder that Steve’s character, Charles, seems right in the middle of. This sets up the next murder mystery for the third season!
