Only Murders in the Building grew into one of Hulu’s most popular shows since its premiere, and its future is looking bright! Shortly after the mind-blowing Season 3 finale knocked us off our feet, the streamer announced they’re bringing this acclaimed comedy series for another round.

Only Murders in the Building took us inside the affluent Upper West Side apartment building Arconia, where three total strangers bond over their shared love for true crime podcasts. Former actor Charles, Broadway director Oliver, and young artist Mabel (Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez) decide to join forces and record their own podcast about a string of murders in Arconia.

Season 3 of this acclaimed series took us out of Arconia and straight to Broadway, on the set of Oliver’s new play Death Rattle. When its lead actor Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd) collapses on stage on the opening night, Charles, Oliver, and Mabel find themselves trying to unravel the mystery only they could solve.

Season 3 cast was as star-studded as it gets, and it included the likes of Meryl Streep, Jesse Williams, Ashley Park, Jeremy Shamos, Linda Emond, Wesley Taylor, and Michael Cyril Creighton. Its premiere made quite a splash on Hulu and it scored the most-watched premiere day for any Hulu scripted original in 2023 so far.
