Rejoice, y’all! The true gift of a show, Only Murders in the Building is getting a second season following its massively successful first season.
The all out magical Hulu series featured the return of Steve Martin and Martin Short doing what they do best. Each and ever episode was filled with total outright charm and that unmistakable comedy signature that these two are known for.
“There has been something about this project that felt almost fated from the start; from Dan’s first lunch with Steve in which Steve happened to mention he had an idea for a series, to John jumping aboard to co-create it, to Steve’s agreeing to star but only if Marty joined him, to the inspired addition of Selena. The comedy this team delivered has been the obsession of every executive at this studio, and our friends at Hulu have treated it like the crown jewel that it is. And now, thanks to the incredible audience response, we are so happy to say there will be more murders in the building — which is great news for everyone, except perhaps the residents of the Arconia,” Karey Burke, president, 20th Television said.
The synopsis for Only Murders in the Building goes like this:
“Only Murders In The Building” follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.
If you missed out on the show, now is the time to watch and prepare for season 2. You won’t regret it especially if you are a big Martin and Short fan.
Season one of Only Murders in the Building is currently streaming on Hulu.
