Spolier alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 3 of Only Murders in the Building.
Fans of Hulu's Only Murders in the Building have a lot to celebrate. We learned in January 2023 that Season 3 was officially greenlit, and now we have an official release date for you. Not only that, but there are some big names joining the cast, so we're more excited than ever to head back to the drama of Arconia.
Season 1 chronicles Mabel (Selena Gomez), Oliver (Martin Short), and Charles's (Steve Martin) attempts to dig up every bit of dirt and uncover the details surrounding Arconia resident Tim Kono's suspicious death. Season 2 captures the investigation into another tragic passing in the building — and Mabel, Oliver, and Charles are primary suspects! What could possibly be happening in Season 3? Whatever it is, it's sure to be good.
Here's when 'Only Murders in the Building' Season 3 releases on Hulu.
Season 3 of Only Murders in the Building became the subject of extensive fan speculation long before the Season 2 premiere, and it didn't take long after Season 2 got underway for Hulu to announce that Season 3 would happen. The first two episodes of Season 3 of Only Murders in the Building release on Hulu on Aug. 8, 2023, at 12 a.m., and new episodes will continue to air every Tuesday.
Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that Season 3 will feature some huge talent — namely, Meryl Streep! There's no info yet on who Meryl will be playing, but we have no doubt that she will steal many scenes.
Season 3 will also welcome Grey's Anatomy alum Jesse Williams, who plays a "documentarian with a particular interest in the case that Mabel, Charles and Oliver are working on" (per Variety).
Additonally, Season 3 viewers will also witness the return of Paul Rudd as Ben Glenroy, who made an appearance at the very end of Season 2.
Season 2 also featured a medley of guest stars, including Amy Schumer, who plays a new and somewhat bothersome resident at the Arconia; Cara Delevingne, who portrays Mabel's art-oriented love interest, Alice; Tina Fey, who plays trail-blazing podcaster Cinda Canning; and Shirley MacLaine, who appears as Leonora Folger.
What will Season 3 of 'Only Murders in the Building' be about? Season 3 spoiler alert.
While the creators have kept details on the planned plotlines for Season 3 under wraps (you'll just have to watch the new season to find out what happens), we do know how it starts off.
According to Hulu, Season 3 picks up with Charles, Oliver, and Mabel trying to piece together what happened at the show and "determine if foul play was involved." A "lavish" memorial is also held for Ben, who sadly passes away during his performance in Oliver's Broadway show.
Catch new episodes of Only Murders in the Building Season 3 on Tuesdays at 12 a.m. EST.
