One of the most popular new shows from 20th Television is “Only Murders In The Building”; just last week, the show’s third season returned to our screens, and a new episode is being released weekly.
Season three finds Charles, Oliver & Mabel (played by Steve Martin, Martin Short & Selena Gomez) investigating a murder behind the scenes of a Broadway show. Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd) is a Hollywood action star whose Broadway debut is cut short by his untimely death. Aided by co-star Loretta Durkin (Meryl Streep), our trio embarks on their toughest case yet, all while director Oliver desperately attempts to put his show back together. Curtain up!
And while the third season has only just hit our screens, there are already questions about a potential fourth season, as during a recent interview with Screen Rant the show’s creator, John Hoffman, spoke about the chances of a second season:
As many as they’ll have us for! I really mean it. This is one of those shows [where] everyone involved in it is so happy doing it – and I know I speak for the trio and everyone else. When you have lightning in a bottle in this way, and then there’s this magnetizing force of incredible talent who say, “Wow, that looks like fun. I would love to be a part of that.” I hope it gives it a good long life. I think sometimes I do recognize a certain question that comes with this premise. Well, I hope season 3 points to [how], and I have many other ideas for how to… If anything, my banner over this whole show [is that] when you look at the poster right from season 1, and you see Steven Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez? It’s unexpected. And so that, I think, holds a lot under it that could have it for a long life. Who knows, though? I genuinely don’t know.
The show is one of the most popular Hulu/Star Originals out right now, and with the age of Martin Short and Steve Martin, decisions will need to be made quickly, in order to get a fourth season created. With the current season only recently starting and with the actors/writers’ strikes underway, it’s unlikely we’ll get an update on a fourth season for a while, but hopefully, we will find out soon.
The first few episodes of the third season, along with the first two seasons of “Only Murders In The Building”, are available to stream on Hulu in the United States, on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ around the world.
