Only Murders in the Building has become one of Hulu’s newest hits and has slowly started to grow its already impressive cast throughout the last few seasons. The series is led by Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez in the leading roles. Yet, the series made a big splash when Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd, joined for the series’ third season. Selena Gomez jokingly shared a video on TikTok to highlight the cast on set including Rudd joining in for the fun. Yet, there was one major new addition that might have everyone quite excited.
At the end of the video, the one and only Meryl Streep appears and jokes around with the others from the Hulu Original. While it’s not said outright, her addition being highlighted by the official Twitter account and her being there on set confirms that Streep will have a role of some kind in the next season.
It’s definitely a clever way to reveal her involvement, especially with the popularity of the series with younger audiences. Generation Z is the main focus on TikTok and it seems quite fitting that they’re using this cheeky way to get some fans hyped up for the legacy actress joining the franchise. Only Murders in the Building features a fun concept that allows almost any actor or actress join, and it’ll be exciting to see who Streep might end up playing. Guess we’ll have to wait a bit until we find out.
