Only Murders in the Building has been renewed for a third season at Hulu.
The renewal comes just two weeks into Only Murders' sophomore season, which premiered June 28. Hulu has yet to release viewership data for Season 2, but Season 1 debuted as the most-watched comedy series in Hulu Originals' history.
Plot details for Only Murders Season 3 remain under wraps, but the season is likely to feature the show's main trio, Charles (Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short), and Mabel (Selena Gomez), investigating a new murder at their Upper West Side apartment complex, The Arconia.
Season 1 followed the unlikely friends as they launch a podcast about the death of one of their neighbors, who had a surprising connection to Mabel. In Season 2, Charles, Oliver, and Mabel race to unmask the killer of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell), but when they're implicated in her homicide, they become subjects of a competing podcast and must work to clear their names.
Over the course of its two seasons, Only Murders has featured a wide variety of celebrity guest stars, including Sting, Tina Fey, Cara Delevingne, Amy Schumer, and Shirley MacLaine.
Only Murders is co-created by Martin and John Hoffman. Martin and Hoffman executive produce alongside Short, Gomez, and Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal.
"Only Murders in the Building is the true crown jewel of our slate," said Craig Erwich, president of Hulu originals and ABC Entertainment. "Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan, John, Steve, Marty and Selena's work. We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver, and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story."
New episodes of Only Murders in the Building Season 2 drop every Tuesday on Hulu.
