Get ready, guys, because Selena Gomez is making her return to television. That’s right, Hulu recently announced that the former Disney Channel star is set to appear alongside Hollywood legends Steve Martin and Martin Short in their upcoming comedy series, Only Murders In The Building.
According to the streaming service, “The series follows three strangers (played by Steve, Martin and Selena) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.”
Aside from starring in the show, Selena is also set to executive produce the entire series! As fans know, this will mark the 28-year-old’s first major TV role since Wizards of Waverly Place came to an end in 2012. For those who forgot, she played Alex Russo in the fan-favorite show.
But Only Murders In The Building isn’t the only show Selena has in the works. On Thursday, August 13, the songstress will step into the kitchen and show off her culinary stills with the help of 10 master chefs in the HBO Max show Selena + Chef, which was filmed during the coronavirus quarantine in her brand new home.
According to a press release, Selena will team up with a different master chef during each episode — remotely, of course — and together, they’ll take on all different types of cuisine, share various tips and tricks and deal with all different problems people may face in the kitchen — from smoking ovens to missing ingredients. Each episode will highlight a food-related charity, and this “informative cookalong” will embrace both the struggle and the joy of learning to cook — while inviting audiences to follow along at home.
