The mystery-comedy was so popular in fact that the Academy Awards reportedly reached out to its stars — Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez — to host the 2022 ceremony, but they declined, citing scheduling conflicts.
For the unfamiliar, the show follows three neighbours who are brought together by their love of true crime when a death takes place in their New York City apartment building, the Arconia. Charles (Martin), Oliver (Short) and Mabel (Gomez) begin their own true-crime podcast as they try to crack the case and soon find there’s much more than meets the eye to this case, which has been declared a suicide by the police.
With the new season just around the corner, here’s everything we know so far about Only Murders in the Building season two.
What Is Only Murders In the Building Season Two About?
The new season of Only Murders In the Building picks up where season one left off: with Charles discovering Mabel holding their neighbour Bunny Folger’s dead body.
Hulu’s official synopsis for season two is as follows:
“Following the shocking death of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger, Charles, Oliver and 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 neighbours who all think they committed murder.”
