Below are spoilers for the first season of Only Murders in the Building.
Even though there have been murders in the building, Selena Gomez, Steve Martin, and Martin Short have decided to stay longer at the Arconia. (At least, we hope the rent will go down.)
The popular Hulu comedy has been a hit from the start. On its first day, it was the most-watched original comedy on the streaming service. In the crazy mystery, Gomez, Martin, and Short play a group of true-crime fans who start a podcast about a murder in their own Upper West Side building, only to be drawn into the case when they find out they have something to do with it.
The show has more beautiful coats than HBO’s The Undoing and has always been a source of good-natured fun in the crime genre, which is often dark and serious. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that Hulu has given OMitB another season.

“There has been something about this project that has felt almost fated from the beginning,” Karey Burke, president of 20th Television, said in a press release.
“From [co-creator] Dan Fogelman’s first lunch with Steve, where Steve happened to mention he had an idea for a series, to [co-creator and executive producer] John Hoffman jumping on board to co-create it, to Steve agreeing to star but only if Marty joined him, to the inspired addition of Selen “Every executive at this studio is crazy about the comedy that this team made, and our friends at Hulu have treated it like the crown jewel that it is.”
‘Only Murders In The Building’ Season 2 Cast
Martin (Charles), Short (Oliver), and Gomez (Mabel) are all playing their roles again. After Hulu announced that there would be a second season, Gomez took to Instagram to talk about how excited she was about it.
Variety announced on December 1, 2021, that Paper Towns and Suicide Squad actress Cara Delevingne had been cast as a regular for season 2. She will play Alice, “a sophisticated insider in the art world who gets caught up in the mystery.” Alice will be interested in Gomez’s character, Mabel.
Vanity Fair said on May 5 that Alice will help Mabel get in touch with a part of herself that she has been ignoring since the show began. Gomez and Delevingne have been friends for a long time, which helped their chemistry on screen. John Hoffman, who runs the show, told Vanity Fair that it was great that the two of them knew each other and were comfortable with each other. “It’s a little sparkly in all the right ways, which makes you feel like, Oh, someone’s opening someone’s world.”
Delevingne also told ELLE.com that Alice’s style is “definitely most like me than any other character I’ve ever played, but with some riskier looks for sure.”

Later, in February 2022, Martin tweeted that Andrea Martin from “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” and Zoe Colletti from “Annie” had joined the cast in two roles that hadn’t been announced yet.
Vanity Fair says that Amy Schumer plays herself as a new resident of Arconia who moves into Sting’s apartment in the first season. Her “self-centered character expresses interest in adapting the Only Murders podcast for the screen; she wants to star in a feminist antihero version told from the point of view of Jan,” according to VF, but Charles, Oliver, and Mabel need to clear their names first.
Hoffman told VF that Shirley MacLaine will join the cast as Bunny’s grieving mother. She will play a role in season 2’s main mystery and have an “exciting” character arc.
We’ll see more of Uma (Jackie Hoffman) and Howard, who loves cats, who lived in Arconia in season 1. (Michael Cyril Creighton). Bunny, played by Jayne Houdyshell, will also show up in flashbacks.
When Will The Next Season Be Out?
Make a note: Only Murders in the Building will be back on Hulu on June 28. Watch the funny video that Gomez, Martin, and Short made to announce their date below.

Hoffman, one of the show’s co-creators, told Queerty in the past that season 2 would start filming by the end of 2021.
‘Only Murders In The Building’ Season 2 Plot
Here’s what Hulu says about the next season:
The end of season 1 left us with a shocking cliffhanger, and there has been a lot of talk about what might happen in season 2. We know that Charles’ girlfriend, Jan, killed Tim Kono out of jealousy and then poisoned Charles. Jan’s arrest is made easier because Charles flops around the building enough to get Mabel and Oliver’s attention.
But they don’t have much time to celebrate because the fire alarm in the Arconia goes off. Charles and Oliver run down the stairs and find Mabel kneeling in front of a dead body in her apartment.
“It’s not what you think,” she says to her friends, but could she be lying? It wouldn’t be the first time Mabel lied about something. Still, it seems strange that the fan-favorite turned into a cold-blooded killer. Most likely, there are other bad forces at work, but we won’t know more about them until season 2 of the show is filmed.
At the end of the first season of Only Murders, John Hoffman, who helped make the show, told Deadline, “Our trio is in the hot seat.” “In the days before what happens at the end of the season, they have to think about their relationship with Bunny, and a lot has happened… There’s a lot there that has to do with what happened at the end of Season 1 and what will happen in Season 2. It gets weirder and more fun at the same time. It also makes them feel like they need to solve the case.”

In an interview with ELLE in October 2021, Hoffman said, “We do have a good plan for season 2.” We start shooting in fact in a month… We’ve been doing that, and we’re now moving quickly through the scripts and are about halfway done.”
According to Vanity Fair’s first look, the second season is very meta. Charles, Mabel, and Oliver are trying to figure out how to make season 2 of their podcast a worthy follow-up to season 1, just like the Only Murders in the Building team is trying to figure out how to do the same thing for the show.
The main difference is that our main characters also have to deal with a murder investigation and a sudden rise to internet fame. “Do you try to clear your name, or do you take advantage of this weird moment when you’re famous in New York and on the front pages?” VF asked Hoffman.
The new season will also go into the characters more. “Bunny’s death reveals new secrets about the Arconia’s design and its fascinating history, which has ties to Charles’s childhood,” VF says. We’ll also see Charles and his father in flashbacks.
Is There Already A Trailer?
On March 27, it was shown for the first time during the Oscars red carpet show. The footage hints that Charles, Oliver, and Mabel will get back together and talk about how Bunny died. “We won’t go quietly here at Only Murders in the Building,” Mabel says.
