Filming has begun this week on the second season of the Hulu/Star Original series “Only Murders In The Building”, with Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez returning.
In the first season, the three neighbours share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building, which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.
During a recent TCA panel for the Hulu series on Thursday, Nathan Lane was asked by Deadline about the possibility of returning in the second season as Teddy Dimas, which he replied:
“We don’t know We’re not allowed to say under pain of death. Send those cards and letters that you want to see more of the Dimas’. In fact, a Dimas spinoff would really be spectacular. I had a great time, in particular, working with James. He’s a really gifted young actor and he really knocked it out of the park with his performance. Yes, I would be thrilled to go back and, you know, when the Dimas’ seek revenge.”
Amy Ryan, who played the Jan in the first season, was also asked about the possibility that she’d return in the second season:
“Oh my gosh. I would love that. But I don’t know—or I might die if I tell you as Nathan has warned. I think anything’s a possibility in our crazy building. Everyone’s a suspect. That’s what I love about the show. I think it’s so clever. It’s hard not to go down the list of ‘maybe they did it?’ I feel like the writers have done such an extraordinary job where everyone is plausible. It really keeps you on your toes as a viewer. So, in terms of Bunny, I feel like the field is wide open.”
The first season of “Only Murders In The Building” is available to stream now on Hulu in the United States, Star+ in Latin American and on Disney+ in the rest of the world.
