Only Murders In The Building Season 3 - What We Know So Far

The ending of "Only Murders in the Building" Season 2 provided fans with a neat and satisfying conclusion to the mystery of Bunny Folger's (Jayne Houdyshell) murder after podcast hosts Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez), Oliver Putnam (Martin Short), and Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin) discover that Poppy White (Adina Verson) had killed Bunny and attempted to frame her boss Cinda Canning (Tina Fey). On top of that, their investigation also revealed that Poppy's real name is Becky Butler and that she is the subject of Canning's true crime podcast "All is not OK."

Thus, the season finale solves the mystery of Bunny's death without any hiccups and, from there, begins to wrap up the various loose ends left over from the remainder of the season. The ending saw Charles finally reclaiming his starring role in the "Brazzos" television reboot, saw Oliver reconnecting with his estranged son Will (Ryan Broussard), and saw Mabel reigniting her relationship with Alice Banks (Cara Delevingne). For a few moments, it almost seemed like all the chaos within the Arconia might finally have come to an end — until a shocking new murder in the episode's final moments sets up the story for the series next season.

Here's everything we know so far about Season 3 of "Only Murders in the Building."

Who is in the cast of Only Murders in the Building Season 3?

As of right now, the only four cast members who are confirmed to be returning for Season 3 of "Only Murders in the Building" are series leads Selena Gomez, Martin Short, and Steve Martin, as well as Season 2 guest star Paul Rudd — the latter of which plays an actor named Ben Glenroy who mysteriously dies during the premiere of Oliver Putnam's latest Broadway play (via IMDB).

Outside of the aforementioned stars, it's unclear how many cast members from Season 1 and Season 2 will return for Season 3. That said, it's fair to assume that Cara Delvingne will be reprising her role as Alice Banks and that most of the significant residents within the Arconia building will have a part to play in this newest murder mystery. Indeed, it seems likely that major Arconia residents like Teddy and Theo Dimas (played by Nathan Lane and James Caverly, respectively), Jan Bellows (Amy Ryan), Uma Heller (Jackie Hoffman), Howard Morris (Michael Cyril Creighton), and the Arconia doorman Lester (Teddy Coluca) ought to make appearances throughout the upcoming season, though it's uncertain which of these more well-known residents could have played a role in the mysterious death of Ben Glenroy.

It's also unclear who the guest stars for this latest season might be, though, considering the fact that previous guest stars within the series include Jane Lynch, Jimmy Fallon, Amy Schumer, and Sting, it will be exciting to see who joins the cast for Season 3.

What is the plot of Only Murders in the Building Season 3?

As previously mentioned, the plot of "Only Murders in the Building" Season 3 will focus on uncovering the truth about actor Ben Glenroy's death during the opening night of Oliver Putnam's play. Although Glenroy seemingly collapsed and died while sharing the stage with Charles-Haden Savage, with what we know about the series as a whole, it seems like a foregone conclusion that some amount of foul play was involved in this unexpected tragedy.

In fact, the series even gave fans a hint at who the prime suspect might be in this newest murder case, through a not-so-subtle cover of the show's theme song. During the end credits of Season 2, fans can hear a yodeling rendition of the series theme song, which hints at the possible involvement of Arconia resident Howard Morris in Glenroy's death. Indeed, a particularly memorable sequence from Season 2 saw Morris yodeling a cover of 1960's pop music — and the inclusion of a yodeling cover of the theme song seems like a clear hint that Morris is somehow connected to this bizarre and tragic murder.

In addition to focusing on Morris' possible involvement in the murder, series co-creator John Hoffman told Variety that Season 3 would also reveal much more about Ben Glenroy's mysterious life. Although Howard Morris may be the lead suspect thus far in the murder of Ben Glenroy, fans should expect that (much like earlier seasons) the podcasting trio will investigate a wide variety of possible killers and that there will be many twists and turns throughout the case.

Where can you watch previous seasons of Only Murders in the Building?

For anyone out there who wants to catch up with the first two seasons of "Only Murders in the Building" (and get a feel for the show's charming and hilarious spin on the classic murder-mystery genre), the first two seasons are available exclusively through Hulu. 

Subscriptions for Hulu (with ads) begin at $6.99/month or $69.99/year, while plans for Hulu (no ads) start at $12.99/month. On top of those regular subscription plans, several bundles are available that package Hulu alongside other prominent streamers and even broadcast television, such as the Hulu + Live TV plan, which starts at $69.99/month and also grants Disney+ and ESPN+.

The fact that "Only Murders in the Building" is only available through Hulu ought to come as no surprise to fans of the series, as the series is one of the most successful and important Hulu Originals that the company has ever produced. Indeed, Craig Erwich (the president of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment) told Variety that the series was "the true crown jewel of our slate" and praised the way that the series was able to draw in audiences of all ages. Hulu's emphasis on the importance of "Only Murders in the Building" makes it extremely unlikely that the series will find a home on any other streaming service in the future — and as such, the only way to catch up on all previous episodes is through a Hulu subscription.
