Someone's killed the Christmas spirit in the trailer for Who Killed Santa? A Murderville Murder Mystery.
Will Arnett is back as Detective Terry Seattle in the Murderville Christmas special, where he investigates who slayed Old Saint Nick with the help of celebrity guest stars Jason Bateman and Maya Rudolph.
"Santa Claus is dead," Bateman tells Rudolph. "Wait, really? Santa Claus is dead?" she says, through laughter.
The catch of this special? "Jason Bateman and Maya Rudolph aren't being given the script. They have no idea what’s about to happen to them. Together, with Terry Seattle (and many surprises), they will have to improvise their way through the case... but it will be up to both of them to name the killer."
Written by Krister Johnson, Owen Burke, Marina Cockenberg, and Kerry O'Neill, the 50-minute special also features guest stints from Eliza Coupe, Kurt Braunohler, Haneefah Wood, Lilan Bowden, Dennice Cisneros, Tawny Newsome, and Courtney Parchman.
Who Killed Santa: A Murderville Murder Mystery debuts on Netflix December 15.
