Only Murders in the Building was picked up for a third season back in July, shortly after Season 2 debuted on Hulu. The series focuses on three individuals – Charles (Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short), and Mabel (Selena Gomez) – who live together in an apartment building and form an unlikely friendship over their shared interests in true crime. The trio, who initially bond over the love of a certain podcast, opt to start their own covering only murders in their building.
The series was created by Hoffman and leading man Steve Martin. The first two seasons are now streaming on Hulu.
