'Only Murders in the Building' Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Plot

The story of Mabel (played by Selena Gomez), Oliver (Martin Short), and Charles (Steve Martin) is not over.

The crime-podcast and murder-solving trio will be back for the second season of Only Murders in the Building, hot on the heels of the Season 1 cliffhanger.

Newsweek has everything you need to know about Only Murders in the Building Season 2 release date, cast, trailer, plot, and so much more.

When is 'Only Murders in the Building' Season 2 Out?

At the moment, Only Murders in the Building does not have a Season 2 release date but there is some good news.

In the Only Murders in the Building Season 1 finale, podcast host Cinda Canning (Tina Fey) teased a second true-crime podcast titled "Only Murderers in the Building" would be coming "this fall."

If Fall is the release date, it is most likely Only Murders in the Building Season 2 will arrive in Fall 2022 as filming is set to begin any time now.

On the other hand, it is possible Only Murders in the Building Season 2 could follow the release pattern of Season 1, and land in August 2022 on Hulu.

The news of the show's renewal midway through Season 1 came as no surprise considering Only Murders in the Building was the most-watched comedy premiere to date for Hulu, reported The Wrap.

In a statement, co-creator John Hoffman said: "Everyone in our amazing Building worked with such love and expertise through extraordinary times—and with incredible support from Disney, Hulu and 20th TV—to create a first season that might live up to our legendary cast, our beloved New York City, and to make a show about connection.

"To feel we've connected with our audience and hit the mark enough already to have the chance to continue—and to carry on our show's wild ride of mystery-comedy-empathy—is too exciting for words. So I'll shut up now, and just say a huge thanks to all and I can't wait for more."

Who Will Star in 'Only Murders in the Building' Season 2?

The entire main cast will return for Only Murders in the Building Season 2.

This means co-creator Steve Martin will be back as Charles-Haden Savage, a retired actor who found fame in the '80s drama Brazos.

Joining Martin will be Selena Gomez as Mabel Mora, a 28-year-old artist who comes out of her shell after meeting Charles and Oliver.

Martin Short will also return as the eccentric theatre director Oliver Putnam.

Some other familiar faces who are also expected to return include Aaron Dominguez as Mabel's longtime friend and new boyfriend, Oscar; Da'Vine Joy Randolph as NYPD Detective Williams who formed an unlikely alliance with the trio; and Tina Fey as a rival true-crime podcast host, Cinda Canning.

Fans can also expect to see some new faces in and around The Arconia and some brand new suspects in Season 2 of Only Murders in the Building.

What Will Happen in 'Only Murders in the Building' Season 2?

At the moment, it is hard to predict what will happen in Only Murders in the Building Season 2.

The new series is sure to pick up from the huge cliffhanger ending of Season 1 which saw Oliver, Charles, and a blood-covered Mabel arrested by the NYPD on suspicion of murder.

Just moments before their arrest, Arconcia board member Bunny (played by Jayne Houdyshell), was found in a pool of blood with Mabel's knitting needle in her back.

However, Mabel insisted it "is not what it looks like" and said Bunny stumbled into her apartment and onto her.

However, whether Bunny was stabbed before or after she entered Mabel's apartment remains unknown for now.

Setting up Season 2 of Only Murders in the Building, as Mabel, Charles and Oliver were arrested, Cinda came up with a name for their next podcast—Only Murderers in the Building.

Is There A Trailer for 'Only Murders in the Building' Season 2?

No, there is no trailer as yet for Only Murders in the Building Season 2. A trailer is likely to drop closer to the show's release date in 2022.

In the meantime, fans have been sharing their excitement online for the new series.
